The festival of Navratri is here and it is being celebrated around the country with max enthusiasm especially in the pink city. While every apparel store is brimming with colourful costumes and other ethnic wear options, the restaurants in Jaipur are all set to create the best Vrat special food in their kitchens.

Price: Navratri Thali starting @ INR 160 to INR 300
A newbie in town is a symphony of Falahar as an ingredient and every item on their menu reeks of good taste and traditional vibes. Among other Vrat special snacks such as Sabudana Dahi Vada, Makhania Lassi, Falahari Dahi Raita, Mixed Fruit Chaat, etc. lies 4 different thalis, each better than the last one. The most recommended and smallest one is called Mini Thali, then comes the Prince Thali, Deluxe Thali and finally the showstopper; Shahi Thali. And if I may walk you through the dishes being served in the last and the grandest one, you'd feel full already. But here we go... this thali contains Subudana Kheer, Singhada Halwa, Aloo Curry, Paneer Veg, Dhania Chutney, Sabudana Khichdi, Puri, Dahi Raita, Aloo Chips, Fruit Chaat and Salad. I know right. The place is as affordable as it gets and I think you'd love it here.

Price: Navratri Thali @ INR 221
The place is packing tonnes of delicious food and thali in their menu but I am going to direct the one we are here for; Falahari Bhog. Trust me when I say this, it's like a feast for one which I think is at least a two man's job and everything tastes excellent. Allow me to spell it out for you; the Falahari Bhog is a unique amalgamation of Navratri special food items like Aloo Fries, Sabudana Vada, Paneer Sabzi, Aloo Sabzi, Dahi Vada, Kuttu Puris, Sabudana Khichdi, Chaach and for dessert... Shrikhand. Not only it's easy on the pocket but quite filling and of course full of flavours.
