Jaipur has long been a city famed for trading; as a result communities from all over India and other parts of Asia have settled here.  Naturally the traders and settlers’ home cuisine has blended with the local food habits of Jaipur to what is now an intricate, characteristic and culinary haven, with many historical and cultural layers. This tour explores all these different elements and encourages guests to try and test the different food on offer. It explores the different communities, their behaviors and the different use of spices. It also seeks to explain more modern patterns of eating in Jaipur.  The tour begins from Sanganeri Gate, home to a large vegetable market that sits opposite to Hanuman Temple. This is the perfect place to gain an understanding of the enormous variety of fruits and vegetables used by people of Jaipur’s old city. The tour continues through the back streets, stopping at different street vendors and markets. Along the way you might like to try Namkeen walo ki gali (a mouth watring snack), Til ki Gajak (a sesame brittle sweet), Heeng Kachori (a snack served with mint sauce) and of course a local lassi.  This tour is designed for those with a real interest in Indian cuisine.
