Mawa Naan : A delicious Indian type of Bread(Roti) at Sharma Dhaba on Sikar Road.
Daal Baati Choorma : Recognised as a Rajasthan speciality, a combination of three different delicacies, it is a complete meal in itself. Dal, or lentil curry, is served with Bhatti, a roundel of stuffed flour that’s baked in a charcoal fire or oven. Choorma is a sweet dish made with flour, jaggery or sugar and ghee. The local way to eat is to break the Baati like a roti, mix in some daal and choorma, pour lot of ghee over this and relish it. Try Rawat & Chokhi Dhani for this relishing dish. And To have Dal-baati-choorma at a nominal expense, check out the dhabas near Sindhi Camp (Central) Bus Stand.
