Dal Baati Churma

The state of Rajastan is synonymous with dal-baati-churma, which is a curation of lentil curry (dal), wheat rolls (baati) and crushed wheat balls soaked in plenty of ghee (clarified butter) and sugar. This dish is an attempt to bring all the flavours together in a single meal and thus, while the dal is thick and spicy, the almost plain baati complements it nicely. In addition, a helping of churma makes sure that sweet flavours are close at hand.

Ghewar

A small round sweet cake made with all-purpose flour and soaked in sugar syrup, ghewar is among the most decadent desserts in the city. The generous amount of ghee (clarified butter) used in its preparation is what makes it so delicious.

The malai variant of ghewar is a must-try in Udaipur – several shops have been crafting this delicacy for generations and considered as experts.
