Rajasthani cuisine is one of the finest amalgamations of India spices and traditional home-grown ingredients cooked to perfection. Being rich in culture, Rajasthan reveals volumes about its traditions and the historical backing through its traditional and authentic taste and cooking techniques. The state of the Maharajas still does their cuisines the way the lords would have savoured it and Pune has numerous outlets serving the delicacies, to give you the taste of the royalty.

Here are some places where you can grab a bite in the rich, flavourful and scrumptious Rajasthani delights.

Baba Ramdev Dhaba

Known to have a perfect hand in making the most famous dish, Dal Baati, they don’t have just one but varieties of it. They are elaborate enough that a plate of Daal Baati can satiate two decent eaters. Keeping up with the countryside vibe, they have the typical ‘Khaat’ styles seating with intricate paintings resembling the heart of the vibrant state. Not to miss on the ‘Desi Ghee’ sweets and the special Rajasthani a-la-carte menu if you are in a mood to experiment. The place sees huge footfalls on weekends, so patience is the key to good food here.
