Chokhi Dhani, Jaipur, India

In Jaipur we visited a thematic restaurant called Chokhi Dhani. This restaurant embraces Rajasthani culture and so has a great ambiance with live music in the background. Chokhi Dhani Village gives you a chance to experience the beauty, rich culture and heritage of Rajasthan, all confined at one location. The place has been designed to recreate the look of an authentic Rajasthani village. It's a pure vegetarian restaurant with Rajasthani Thalis. Thali refers to a metal plate that a thali meal may be served on. The idea behind a Thali is to offer all the 6 different flavors of sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent and spicy on one single plate. According to Indian food custom, a proper meal should be a perfect balance of all these 6 flavors Typical dishes include rice, dal, vegetables, roti, papad, yoghurt, small amounts of chutney or pickle, and a sweet dish to top it off. Rice or Roti is the usual main dish which occupies the central portion of the Thali, while the side dishes like vegetable curries and other delicacies are lined circularly along the round Thali. Chokhi Dhani offers the rich taste of authentic Rajasthani food and it really was completely scrumptious.
