Jaisalmer- Food guide

Ghotua
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Jaisalmer caters to the Rajasthani cuisine, mostly influenced by the war-like lifestyle. By war-like lifestyle, we mean that the locals take heavy meals so as to stay full for a long time. Also, since Jaisalmer is a desert city, the food habit of the locals incorporates coolants like lassi, chaach (buttermilk), and a variety of sharbat (syrups).

Following are some of the delicious local food of Jaisalmer worth trying at least once in life.

Dal-bati Churma

Dal Bati is a flagship dish of Rajasthan. Bati is a baked or deep-fried ball of flour. It is then dipped in ghee (butter). The locals crush the bati in dal and eat them with hands.

Churma is made of flour. People roast the dry wheat flour in ghee and add melted sugar and dry fruits to prepare this sweet dish.

Ker Sangri

Ker Sangri is a vegetable prepared with desert beans and capers. These are locally grown and can be stored for years. The dish has a tangy taste because of Ker. Ker is so sour that it needs to be soaked in salt water for days to reduce its sourness.

Pyaz Kachori

You can find Kachori almost everywhere in India. Jaisalmer has a different version of it. Instead of spiced gram flour stuffing, locals here stuff the Kachori with fried onion.
