Udaipur: it's been mentioned before, but Ambrai restaurant on the lake in Udaipur is a good one too - lassi available there as well!
Jagat Niwas Palace hotel has an atmospheric, view onto Lake Palace, restaurant with excellent food.
Every cloud has a silver lining!

Hi all,..

thanks so much for all the suggestions. I think I'll buy a little guide on indian food when I'm in india. So many new foods to choose from!
And thanks to all the suggestions I'm now going to compile a list of where to eat. dal bati churma sounds interesting - and it's a very popular rajasthani sweet dish I hear? Ok I'll have to try it.

Aishah - I've booked in to eat at Ambrai! Heard the tandoori there is amazing! I'll also be doing a cooking class in Udaipur so I can try and replicate the indian dishes back home. Although, I think I'll probably be lazy and end up at my usual favourite indian curry house in surry hills...Last week end I tried making a kerala prawn stir fry with cardamom and ginger and onions with some coconut, - it gave me heart burn! So I'm really glad I'll be taking that cooking class - even if it's only vegetarian cooking.

Heartburn - don't I know it! It's oily food and highly spiced stuffs - and, dare I mention it, even chocolate. Despite the suffering, that dish sounds great! You're in for a treat when you come here - if you haven't taken a look, this Forum is good for descriptions and recipes for Indian food:

Finally got to market this morning and asked about that concoction - it's called here 'dahl pakhawan' I think my spelling approximates what he said. But this could just be a local word for it. I said is this 'chilla' and he said 'nahi'. But then he might not know what a chilla is either!!! This time I'm noticing they are all pre-cooked, and they just do the fry thing with these not pour in a mixture. They are bumpy with some holes when they come out.

And lots of Sindhi people here too! could be right, ashwinnaggar.
Whatever it is, it's very popular - there are always flocks of people around those carts.
Kat Mit - those lassis on MI road, Jaipur, (mentioned by n kumar) are on the opposite side to Niro's Restaurant (also a good one) and are well worth buying! They pour them into these clay glass shaped containers and are just delicious.
