The desserts in Mewar are dominated by dry fruits and milk. Khoya, pistachio, almond, saffron cardamom, honey are filled in a pastry of wheat flour to make the delicious kachori mawa. Locals believe that the legendary Paniya churio, made of crushed maize bread, jaggery and hot clarified butter is a great digestive.

Copious quantities of ghee and dry fruits have been added to add the royal touch. Culinary attempts to reproduce, as far as possible, traditional cooking techniques and Rajasthan Rasodas ingredients.

There is a lavish spread of vegetarian options to choose from; Gatte ka saag, Sangri paneer, Aloo papad achari, mangodi ki kebab, to name a few. An option from the veggie main course and a perfect blend of four different lentils Char dal khimsar is a must-have.
