If you enjoy a long and leisurely drive, we know just the place for you to stop by. And a five-star chef, no less, tipped us off on this one: it’s called Sharma Dhaba, and is located on the fringes of Jaipur city. Wind your way to Sikar Road, and almost anyone will be able to point you to it.
Order the aloo paratha, and you’ll thank us for recommending the place. Sizzling hot, with filling that oozes out, the paratha comes with a terrific pickle, yoghurt and subzi. The Sharma brothers said their best-seller is the Mawa Paratha, which comes filled with khoya and dry fruit. We didn’t particularly enjoy the idea of a sweet filling, but maybe you will.
Some of our other top picks would be the kulhadi lassi, malai kofta, the garlic naan and the lehsun (garlic) chutney – all of them to die for!
The brothers have run this place for over two decades now, and the sheer number of moodhas and tables in front and at the much cleaner back section testify its thumping success. The place has expanded over time, and is no less than a full-fledged restaurant.
You might have a tough time finding the original dhaba, but worry not. Follow this link to locate the exact outlet where you can feast to your heart’s content.
A meal for two here will cost you about Rs. 350, and the fare is all vegetarian. There’s indoor as well as outdoor seating. Also, if you want to enjoy the dhaba’s food from the comfort of your home, go ahead and look it up on any food delivery app!
