Udaipuri - Serving Authentic Rajasthani Cuisine Over Great Conversations
In ancient days, Rajasthanis figured out an ingenious way to cook food that would last for several days while requiring minimal water. This was mainly to conserve water, but another compelling reason was due to the scarcity of green vegetables.
The present-day district of Udaipur is hailed for food made from vegetables and lentils, seasoned with a distinct variety of spices unique to the land of Rajasthan. I went to Udaipuri in the hope of tasting authentic Rajasthani cuisine amidst some great conversations over food. Thankfully, I wasn't let down in any department!
[As a matter of fact, their menu also includes an exquisite spread of Oriental, Mediterranean, and Fusion cuisines; but the focus largely remains on the Udaipur cuisine to keep things straight.]
Udaipuri will remind you of a typical Marwari Bhojnalaya - independently owned by Marwari people and strictly vegetarian in its offering. The only difference here is the space, which is a bit cramped, at least for my liking. Owners should think of leasing a better unit than the claustrophobic little room they have rented for now.
Here are my recommendations on what you should order.
Paneer Ke Soole and Soya Tikka Lababdar - Experience the fiery, scalding flavor of red chilies from Rajasthan in these delicious and unbeatable signature dishes at Udaipuri.

Methi Malai Matar - Get the best of Fenugreek (Methi) in this flavorful dish. For the uninitiated, Fenugreek is one of the oldest cultivated medicinal plants known to reduce inflammation, provide relief from respiratory disorders, and improve cholesterol levels.
Makai Palak Khada Masala - This green wonder delicacy contains the perfect blend of Cumin Seeds (Jeera), a popular spice known to remove toxins from the body, aid digestion, and relieve stress.
Gatte Ka Saag - Try this tempting delicacy of Rajputana Khana - a delicious curd and tomato based curry prepared with Gram Flour (Besan) as the base ingredient. Gattes are cooked gram flour dumplings added to thick curd gravy.
Tandoori Aloo Ke Nakhre - To curb your hunger pangs and give your body a health boost comes a classic Udaipuri dish that makes the best use of Sesame known for building strong bones, improving heart health, and eliminating depression.
Daal Bati Gulab Patti Churma - To know the real meaning of sugar, spice and everything else, enjoy this signature Rajasthani dish with spicy daal, sweet churma, and deep-fried crunchy batis. The daal has contrasting yet complementing flavors of red chili (Mirchi) known to prevent cancer and boost immunity.
[Saying that the Rajasthanis have a sweet tooth is an understatement. Traditionally, in Rajasthani cuisine, sweets are served before, during, and after meals. Hence they are not considered as desserts.]
