Rajasthan is adored for its authentic cuisines offered in the royal kitchens but at the same time, the street food of the cities is equally tempting and delicious. As a tourist, no matter where you are traveling to, you will always find the busy streets of the cities dotted with stalls selling spicy, scrumptious food items.
Talking about Udaipur, the city is no less when we look at its treasure of street food items. From Kachoris to Mirchi Vada and from Daal Bati to egg bhurji, the Lake City has a lot to offer.
Here are some street food items of Udaipur that you should certainly try while taking a stroll in the city.
If you are an egg lover, you must definitely try the yummy egg bhurji at the Egg Curry Stand opposite Chetak Cinema. Here you will get to eat a finger-licking combination of sautéed vegetables, scrambled eggs, and other egg-related dishes cooked up with delicious spices.
Mirchi Bada is one of the most delectable street food item sold in the streets of Udaipur. It’s definitely a must-try item for all the Mirchi lovers. There is a small shop named Manak Balaji that has been making delightful Mirchi Badas since 1967. Not just the Indians but even foreign tourists flock at the store to get the taste of Mirchi Bada.
Kachoris are famous across the entire state of Rajasthan and if you taste it once, you would want to try it again and again. The kachoris of Rajasthan include a variety of stuffings like Dal Kachori, Pyaz Kachori, Dahi Kachori and more. Also, don’t forget to ask for some extra chutney that also comes in two varieties. Although it’s easily available across the city, the best taste can be enjoyed at Pratapgarh Chaat Wala located outside Central Jail.
Another common street food item that you will find in Lake City is the bread Pakoras. These are prepared by stuffing fried mesh potato inside bread rolls and then dipped in besan and deep fried in oil. The piping hot pakoras in triangular bread slices are served with fried salted chilies and chutney.
Dal Bati Choorma is the quintessential element of Rajasthani cuisine without which your Rajasthani trip would seem to be incomplete. Although you can taste this delicacy at restaurants, you would find several food stalls serving Daal Bati and Daal Poodi at just INR 30/ plate. It will not only satisfy your hunger but will also satiate your taste buds.
Apart from the above-mentioned street food items of Udaipur, you can also try Dabeli, Pani Puri, Pav Bhaji, sandwiches, Poha, samosas, and other quick foods at an average cost of INR 50/ person. The city of Udaipur is vibrant and tranquil at the same time.
