Korma girl has a curry: What I ate in India

I'm quite proud to say that we lasted about half the holiday eating purely Indian food. By the time Wednesday evening rolled around we gave up and had pizza! Too much of a good thing and all that. 


This was our first meal on the first day. It was at a vegetarian restaurant and with some help from the very kind waiter we picked out a variety of dishes which kind of worked out like tapas - Indian style.


They were a mix of savoury and sweet which was a bit of a surprise but very fun! It was a good way to ease our jet-lagged selves in.



On the way to Jaipur we stopped at a restaurant for lunch which had a gift shop attached and was full of tourists. Something I noticed though was that it was just us and the locals in the restaurant. 

 "The tourists seem to just be buying Pringles and running away!"


They were definitely missing out as I loved this meal. We shared all the dishes again which were saag (potatoes), daal (lentil type sauce) and I forget it's name but it was vegetables and cheese in a sauce. All picked up with naan bread. Delicious!



Our dessert that evening was yummy! We decided to share some ice cream cake, kulfi (kind of like ice cream which was amazing!) and gulab jamun which is like balls of sponge with syrup. 


For lunch my parents unknowingly ordered special dosas (rice pancake with potato filling) not realising how HUGE they would be. Challenge accepted. 


Meanwhile, my dosa was a lot more managable. Yum!

It was a fun new experience as I had only tried gulab jamun before going to India. 

Have you ever tried any of these dishes? 


  1. That good looks so good! I tried something similar at a restaurant in the Indian district in Singapore a few years ago and it was amazing! My friend had a rice pancake with hers and it was huge and I had a selection of vegetaruan curries. I love trying local food and it often works out cheaper than Pringles! X

    1. I thought it was really fun trying new things. As much as I like pringles, ha ha :) x

  2. I want to eat that special dosas,too.The size is really huge.Gemstone Beads
