Shraman The Ashok Restaurant

A Vegetarian Restaurant that is located in the Hotel, Ashok. For all my fans who have been craving 100% Vegetarian Food (without Onion & Garlic), tis the place to be. You can even visit it during your Fasts and Navratras. They serve cuisines ranging from Gujarati, Rajasthani, North Indian, Marwari and Jain.

The decor is naturally Rajasthani with a thrilling Peacock protruding from a wall. The interiors are done up in Turquoise and Silver and gives the vibe of a old palace dine in with mirrors everywhere.

I started with Kha Rock which is a Mocktail that contained cumin seeds floating on the top, rock salt, ginger mixed in lemonade. You must have this towards the end of your meal to help you digest your food. For starters the best dishes to start with is their Paan Patta Chaat which was deep fried Paan leaves topped with curd, tamarind chutney (sauce) and Indian spices and Jodhpuri Mirch ke Pakode which was Mirch vada with a masala mixture of mashed potatoes, deep fried in gram flour. Typical Rajasthani dish and very popular in Jaipur.
Dal Batti Churma, is one specific dish that will not make your regret Ghee. There's a lot of ghee floating in Batti, Dal with ghee and cumin tadka. Fully loaded with flavours.
As for the Marwari Section, Gatte ki sabzi and Paneer Pasanda are flavoursome and delicious.
Dal Makhani, the North Indian section did not match up to my taste bud.

No meal is complete without Sweet Dish. A Mini Ghewar won my heart. Ghevar topped with Rabri and Mishri to add an extra touch to it. Don't forget to try it!
