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 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 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.
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.
Ghotua is the traditional dessert of the region. It is a gram flour, khoya or mawa, pure ghee, and sugar preparation. Such a great taste with minimal ingredients – that’s Ghotua!
It is a yogurt based drink. The Jaisalmer version of this drink is thick, sweet, and creamy.
Majority of the population in Jaisalmer is vegetarian, but you can also find some great chicken and mutton dishes, prepared in a local style. If you wish to try the authentic food, you can also hire a car for the entire day in Jaisalmer and enjoy your food trail.
