About The Trail

Rajasthan is the home of fabled warriors, iconic heritage sites and a million accounts of history. It is also home to the subcontinent’s largest hot desert. Coming from this unique combination of history and geography is a culture that is special.

Times Passion Trails and Rajasthan Tourism bring to you a never-before opportunity to enjoy what is perhaps the most spectacular aspect of that culture – its cuisine.

The food of the state has been deeply influenced by a scarcity of water, and consequently, of vegetables. But a visitor doesn’t miss those vegetables, such is the spirit of innovation!

In the past, hunting expeditions of warriors gave birth to an entire range of dishes, using ingredients that were lasting for long periods. Lentils and beans are commonly Oil and red chillies help preserve the food and the requirement for water.

This unique trail spanned the Shekhawati, Marwar and Mewar regions of the state, accompanied with sampling everything from street food to its main dishes to the delectable desserts and drinks. All this in the backdrop of some great heritage.

The Times Rajasthan Cuisine Trail, conducted by The Times of India in partnership with Rajasthan Tourism, went through several places in the state and the participants celebrated the flavours of Rajasthan at every pit-stop. Here are some glimpses of the trail that ended Sep 5th, 2022:
