The colourful land of Rajasthan also offers lots when it comes to cuisines and traditional food.The murgh-e-subz succulent, boneless strips of chicken stir-fried with shredded vegetables, is one not to miss.

If you have a hearty appetite, the tandoor thali tops: two chicken preparations (including the ubiquitous but delicious tikka), vegetable kebab, mint sauce, and naan.
Sensitive stomachs can opt for the kadi pakorao, flour dumplings cooked in yogurt sauce, or bhanon aloo, potatoes stuffed with mint paste and simmered in gravy. All of it washed down with the coldest beers and beverages available in the state.
