Description

Rajasthan, a northern Indian state bordering Pakistan, is famous for two things - its delectable cuisines and its royalty.

After meeting your guide, dive head-first into a traditional strike-and-pocket table game known as Karrom. Believed to have been a favorite among the great rulers of Rajasthan, this game is a perfect introduction into the local culture. With pawns surrounding the rani or queen and unique rules and techniques to guide your activity, Karrom is a thoroughly fun game to learn and play.

After the exciting game, head off to a local Jaipur market to hunt for fresh meat and vegetables you'll be using on your cooking class. Your local guide will give you the lowdown on how to navigate the vegetable bazaar and help you engage in conversations with the vendors and other Rajasthani people.

Then, walk through the vibrant streets of Jaipur and proceed to your host's home, where years of home cooking and masala chai secrets are waiting for you. This region's age-old culinary prowess involves a unique blend of rich, colorful spices, ancient herbs, mouthwatering curries and a variety of other delectable and legendary dishes.

During your cooking class, you'll learn the spicy secrets and tasty tips for mastering truly delightful authentic dishes. Be sure to take note of recipes and techniques, these notes are one of the best souvenirs in Jaipur.

Spend the rest of the evening savoring the taste of your Rajasthani home-cooked meal with the family members of your host, learning local stories and immersing yourself in the ultimate Indian cultural experience.

With a special homemade to-go packet of masala chai or flavored tea, cooking notes and recipes and a full tummy, depart from your host's home and end the evening with a drop off at your city center hotel. Your guide will also assist you in finding transportation to your next evening activity.
