''From luscious Nihari to spicy Biryanis, one cannot fall short of choices here''

Tourists in large numbers from world over visit Ajmer every year to pay homage to Khawaja Gharibnawaz Dargah to fulfill their wishes and desires. In fact, this sacred Dargah has brought up Ajmer on the world map. But, another thing the city is famous for is its luscious food.
How many of you have tried Nihari? Never heard of it before? Ajmer is truly full of food, food and food.

Well, mentioned below is a list of must eat food and must visit eateries when in Ajmer.

MUST EAT FOOD : 1. Nihari: Once you are done with offering prayers at Dargah, come out and u’ll find a line-up of small restaurants/dhabas. Get into one of those and order for Nihari. Also called a gift from Nawabs, Nihari is a South Asian stew consisting of slow cooked beef/lamb garnished to taste and served with cooked brain or bone marrow. It’s hot and spicy and served mostly in earliest hours. So, try and make it before 10.00 am to the location. Its taste enhances when taken with the special khameeri roti.

2. Mutton Biryani: The biryani which you get in these dhabas cannot be matched with the ones you get in elite restaurant of Delhi and Mumbai. Biryani is given an orange shade and is made to taste spicy using lot of green chillies.

3. Sheermal: Also order for Sheermal here. It’s a popular Mughal sweetbread – soft and fluffy, and best when eaten the moment it is out of tandoor else it will go stiff with time. Hot sheermal is brushed with saffron milk/butter before serving. It just melts in the mouth. Can be topped with Kebabs.

4. Kadhi Kachori: It will be unfair to not to have local-favourite kadhi kachori when in Ajmer. One plate crushed kachori served with thick besan kadhi will keep you going through the day.

5.Sohan Halwa & Balushahi: Get hands on some very authentic Sohan Halwa, a traditional Indian sweet cooked in ghee (clarifies butter) near Madar Gate in Ajmer. Azad Sweets is one of the famous shops out there. Balushahi, another famous Rajasthani sweet, is also a must try in Ajmer.

MUST VISIT PLACES & RESTAURANTS : 1. Naya Bazar: For all kinds of street food and snacks including Kadhi Kachori, Doodh Jalebi and Besan Sev.

2. The Mango Curry Restaurant (Opp. Dominos on Kutchery Road): Try Keema Parantha here. It’s good. Their special non-veg thali is very filling and can be easily shared by two if not very hungry. Chinese isn’t bad here.

3. Mansingh Palace: One of the best hotels in Ajmer. Choices of food in both veg and non-veg are available. Mutton Biryani and Laal Maas are personal favourites.

4. Chawla’s (Close to Ajmer Railway Station): A must for Biryanis. They some real hot and spicy non-veg Biryanis.

5. Ambrosia Restaurant (Nagina Bagh, Ashok Marg): Good ambiance with uninterrupted view of the charming Aravalis and good Indian food too.

6. Mango Masala (Sardar Patel Marg): For South Indian food. Note: It’s a vegetarian restaurant.

7. Honeydew Restaurant (Opp. Railway Station): Not at all a bad choice if in a hurry to catch a train and cannot make it far.

8. Olive Kitchen: Good ambiance and good food.
