Just like everything else about India’s lake capital, the food in Udaipur is fit for nothing short of royalty. The erstwhile palatial residence of His Highness Maharana Bhupal Singh, The LaLiT Laxmi Vilas Palace Udaipur houses the famous Aangan restaurant in Udaipur. Apart from serving a myriad of delectable dishes, Aangan also gives you the chance to bask in the winter sun as you watch our chefs in action through the open kitchen.
Among a variety of signature items, here are 4 dishes from Aangan that definitely deserve a place in your food bucket list:
Shorba is a very popular form of hot soup or stew, originally from Persia. It is relished widely across different parts of Asia, Africa and especially the Middle East. The sumptuous stew is traditionally cooked by simmering meat in water alongside salt and seasoning of aromatic spices and herbs. The most popular shorba at Aangan is the Murgh Daliya ka Shorba – a chicken and corn kernel broth cooked with traditional Indian spices. Over recent years, vegetarian variants have also solidified their position as a bucket list item, especially the Khumb Palak ka Shorba and Dal Nariyal ka Shorba.
2. Maans Ka Soola
Originating from the royal rasois of Rajasthani kings, Maans ka Soola consists of picattas of lamb marinated with kachhri, cloves, red chilies and yoghurt, finally roasted in a traditional tandoor. The succulent meat is cooked over numerous hours with ounces of patience and love, resulting in a mouth-watering appetizer that’ll make its way directly to your heart.
3. Junglee Tandoori Bater
Cooked with Quail marinated in hung curd and aromatic yellow spices, the Junglee Tandoori Bater from Aangan is considered a star dish by anyone who tries it. The delicious flavours of the exotic bird are chargrilled to perfection.
4. Dal Bati Churma
Ranked among the most popular dishes from Rajasthan, the Dal Bati Churma is a unique gastronomic experience in itself. Our take of the traditional delight consists of baati – freshly baked, unleavened whole wheat bread – served with the signature Dal Mewari and whole wheat churma.
