When in Jaipur, eat where the locals do.
-Rawat’s ‘Pyaaz ki Kachori’
TYW tip: Don’t ask for chutney, cuz they dont serve it. Its strange, but the truth is, it is best enjoyed without chutney.

-Kota Ratan’s ‘ Daal Kachori’
TYW tip: Ask for their green chutney, it complements the daal kachori.
Address: Ratan Kachori wala, Jagdamba Tower, Shop No. 23, Amrapali Circle, Vaishali Nagar, Jaipur
2. Street food
– Pandit ki Pavbhaji
