Short description- in case u r in a hurry:

This Foodie madness post is a part of a series called Culinary pilgrimage – On a weekend in August 15 we decided to travel to Jodhpur on Culinary pilgrimage. A 2 day trip to Jodhpur just to eat out at the numerous streetfood shops that have survived over time……….We ended up eating at 11 places in a span of 48 hours & spent a total of approx Rs. 1850 & then we dined at Jodhpur fort for Rs. 3000. The cost of staying at Jodhpur & travelling to Jodhpur from Delhi was, needless to say, quite a few times more.

Like most old restaurants in Jodhpur, we cud not find this on google map. As I post this article today, I got the google map. That means it was mapped in google after we went a few months back or I mis-spelt while typing in google.

Sher Khan was one of the best things that happened to us in jodhpur trip. This guy knew all the lanes & by-lanes & most importantly, all the eateries. You might try calling him in case u want a foodie tour – Mr. Sher Khan, mobile number +91 9799883445

We came to know that they r famous for Qubuli – a Jodhpur special vegetarian rice pulao. So we decided to go to this eatery. We ordered qubuli and got to know that they serve this dish only on Saturdays. So we missed it as we visited them on a Tuesday.

So we looked around and spotted huge array of snacks and sweets. Decided to try them.

The restaurant had a large dining hall of which 60% was empty as in no furniture. The 40% area had rows of benches and tables.

On the right side of the dining hall was a long sweet and namkeen counter where people were doing takeaway as well.

We were served by an elderly gentleman who treated is very well. He made suggestions as well.

Food was very good.

Detailed description- in case u hv the time to njoy reading:

We started our breakfast with Pyaz Kachori. It was Very very crisp but not hard not very layery as well. Outer layer had very good taste itself. Proportion of onion masala filling was optimum (unlike overdose of filling at surya namkeen).

Found this Kachori quite better than the famous surya namkeen of Jodhpur. Slightly Sour, salt, hot. Excellent balance. Rate it 4.5/5.

Dal Kachori was cut with knife and served in dahi with chutney. It is served plain also. The Look of the final dish reminded us of dahi Bhalle at natraj, Chandni Chowk Delhi. The Taste was very good in its own but the dahi had nothing close to the magic masala of natraj.

The Kachori was again excellent, crisp, flavourful and yumm inside. Rate the dish 4.5/5

We also had a Sweet named Chandrakala that was outstanding. The sweet looked like a garlic head. It had a maida layer on the outside and had dal based filling inside.

The filling was dry, flavourful and daanedar. The outer layer had an element of salt. It was crispy and flaky also.  Simply loved every bite of the sweet. Rate it 4.75/5

We tried massive jalebis. They were larger than iphone6. They were crisp, slightly sour within (fermentation effect) that balanced the sweetness a lot… Rate it 4.5/5
