Raj grew up on a farm outside of Udaipur and has dabbled in everything from hotels to modeling to film (ask him about his role in the Bond film, "Octopussy"). He learned to cook from his mother-in-law, and with his wife, Gita, loves to share traditional Rajasthani cuisine with travelers. Your experience will start with a welcome drink of fresh homemade lime juice before you share a traditional Rajasthani meal with the entertaining Raj and Gita at their dining table in their rustic home. Rajasthani food has textures and includes use of grains that may be unfamiliar to you; Rajasthani cuisine typically emphasizes the hearty grains available in its desert climate, and as a result dishes tend to be drier. You may enjoy soolas, charcoal-grilled meat, ker sangri (a Rajasthani dessert of beans cooked in yogurt), and bajri roti, unleavened bread made from millet and served with homemade butter. If you book a cooking experience, join Raj and Gita in their kitchen where you will learn to prepare two or three traditional Rajasthani dishes, including a Rajasthani bread, along with help from their staff. You will then share the meal you helped prepare with the family at their dining table. Raj also offers an optional market tour add-on during which you can explore one of the farmer's markets of the city, known locally as the 'Mandi', where you will discover regional Rajasthani produce and spices. Please note that this experience is not suitable for children.
One of the most romantic cities in Rajasthan, Udaipur is also known as the city of lakes. The marble palaces, beautifully laid out gardens and the lakes make Udaipur seem almost like a mirage in the desert. The founder of Udaipur, Maharana Udai Singh, was overcome by the misfortunes that his old capital of Chittaurgarh had to face due to repeated attacks by the Mughal armies. On the advice of a holy man, Udai Singh shifted his capital to the banks of Lake Pichola- the city was named Udaipur after him.
