1. The appetizing bhuttas (corn sticks)

During monsoons you can see a lot of roadside vendors selling buttas (corn sticks). These grilled bhuttas spiced up with a light mixture of salt, red chilli and lemon, is one of the most loved food for the rainy season in Jaipur.

Chana Jor Garam is another appetizing Indian snack, which is loved by both kids and adults. It is a snack made out of black gram. Roadside vendors add stuff like onions, tomatoes, green chillies along with a bit of salt, red chilli powder and lemon to it. They mix it well and the spicy mouth-watering snack is ready within minutes. Do not miss enjoying chana jor garam, my personal favourite, when in the Jaipur city.

7. Momos

momos

Momos is a steamed snack that comes with a filling of mixed vegetables for the vegetarians and a filling of chicken or other meat for non-veg lovers. Both veg and non-veg momos are a popular hot delicacy with minimum flavour and yummy taste. Momos are served with special chutney to add to the taste of the perfectly steamed fillings.

8. Jalebis

jalebi

Jalebis, or to be more precise, doodh-jalebis are a perfect monsoon treat. A well-fried, hot, thin and crispy jalebi wrapped in sugar syrup, tastes the best when combined with hot kulhad doodh on a rainy evening. Most Jaipurites visit Saras Parlour in the evenings to relish their taste buds with the famous doodh-jalebis of Saras.
