Street food in Pushkar is sweet, tangy, ghee-dripping and very enticing. The food here is not just about tasting the local cuisines- it is a cultural experience! For the ease of all the travelers visiting Pushkar, We took a spin of some of the most famous street food joints in Pushkar, Rajasthan and here’s what we found!
Mohanji Bhujia Wale or Pushkar Chaat bhadar, Pushkar
One of the most famous street food joint and oldest shop in Pushkar is Mohanji Bujia wale. On the menu, they have kachori, samosa, Mirchi Wada, aloo Wada and bujia/pakodi. They serve all this with kadhi and a special chutney. The Kadhi which they have is different from north Indian kadhi. They don’t use curd, it is made from basen and water.
All the dishes are available in Rs. 15/plate. We have tried almost all and the best one was samosa with kadhi, “ye kha ke maza aa gaya”. If you like to try something different then don’t miss bujia/pakodi with kadhi. Mohanji Bhujia Wale shop opens for only 3-4 hours every day from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
Price: Rs: 15/piece.
Ugma Ji Ki Kachori, Pushkar
Ugma ji ki Kachori is the most famous kachori joint in Pushkar, Rajasthan. This shop is located very close to the Rangji Temple. Ugma ji ki Kachori is famous for its Dal ki Kachori which is served with mango chutney.
Usually, aloo is used as filling in the kachori but Ugma Ji uses dal as a filling, which makes them different from other kachori walas. They serve fresh kachori which is crispy and topped with the special mango chutney which is sweet & tangy “Ohhooo kya Chutney hai”. The Ugma ji kachori wala shop opens at 7:00 AM and closes at 2:00 PM.
Price: Rs: 15/piece. The list of most famous street food in Pushkar is incomplete without Ugma ji ki Kachori.
Ganga Restaurant, Pushkar
There is no tourist who visits Pushkar and doesn’t enjoy the falafel roll from the Ganga restaurant. Located in the main Pushkar market, you will find a constant hoard of people outside this restaurant. Ganga Restaurant is known for its Laffa & Falafel rolls which is the famous street food of the middle east(Egypt, Turkey, Iran) but now its very famous street food of Pushkar also. You might have tried veg roll, chicken roll and nutella roll but falafel roll “inn sabka baap hai”.
Rolls from Ganga Restaraunt is one of the most famous Pushkar street food. They have a very long and detailed menu of rolls, they have over 20 types of falafel rolls. We tried the Ganga spl. and Tandoori Falafel roll. The Ganga special has 3 types of cheese topped with falafel. Whereas the Tandoori Falafel roll has all the veggies, mushrooms, falafel and their special garlic cheese. We liked the Tandori one you can pick according to your taste buds.
Price: Rs. 100 to 250/Roll.
Breakfast Corner, Pushkar
Just opposite to Ganga restaurant you can find this place which is the perfect spot for the people who are diet conscious or prefer fruits over fried food. This small shop serves delicious 5 fruit Museli which has curd, honey and 5 different fruits (you can select any 5 from the list). We have tried it and it was the right choice. “1 dum healthy and bhadia”. This is not like the most famous street food in Pushkar but if you are a diet conscious then you should try it.
