A Spice Trail Leading to Flavorful Delights

Jaisalmer’s cuisine is a vibrant tapestry woven with fiery chilies, earthy spices, and the warmth of Rajasthani hospitality. Start your day with a piping hot Masala Chai, its aromatic blend of ginger, cardamom, and cloves waking up your senses. For breakfast, indulge in Bajra Roti, a millet flatbread, paired with Dal Baati Churma, a hearty lentil dish with roasted bread crumbs and ghee. Each bite is a burst of flavor, a tribute to the desert’s resilience and resourcefulness.

Spice Up Your Lunch with Royal Delicacies

As the sun climbs higher, head to a local eatery for a taste of royalty. Laal Maas, a fiery mutton curry simmered in tomatoes and chilies, will set your taste buds ablaze, while Ker Sangri, a dish made with desert beans and pods, offers a unique earthy flavor. Don’t forget to try Dal Bati Churma again, this time with a richer, creamier twist. And to cool down your palate, savor the sweet and tangy Pappad Ki Chutney, a refreshing condiment made with roasted lentils and spices.

Dinner under Stars: A Culinary Extravaganza

As the sun dips below the horizon, painting the sky in hues of gold and orange, the magic of Jaisalmer’s culinary scene truly unfolds.

At The Golden Camp, this dream becomes reality. Our “Dinner on Dunes” experience is more than just a meal; it’s a sensory feast.

Dig into Marwari Thali, a platter overflowing with an array of vegetarian dishes, each a testament to the ingenuity of desert cuisine. Crunch on Pakoras, deep-fried vegetable fritters, savor the creamy richness of Gatta Curry, and be surprised by the unique flavors of Bajra Ki Khichdi, a millet and lentil porridge. Don’t forget to indulge in Ghewar, a sweet and crispy Rajasthani delicacy that will leave you wanting more.
