Gusto por la India - Taste in India

Mucho más que exotismo culinario - More than just culinary exoticism

El poder de la interminable lista de especias utilizadas en la gastronomía india genera una alquimia única para el arte culinario de este país, íntimamente conectado con elementos de su misticismo intrínseco, así como sus tradiciones. En el caso particular de Rajastán, los Maharajás siempre han sido un referente del buen gusto y la suntuosidad, por lo que su gastronomía refleja las preferencias y placeres de estos reyes. Arroz en todas sus formas, chispazos de diversos sabores que se entremezclan en las masalas para generar intensas sensaciones que equilibramos con trozos de roti, el delicioso pan sin levadura que acompaña cada comida en la India y sin el cual probablemente entraríamos en un trance generado por platillos de una complejidad muy elevada y única. El olor impregna hasta el alma y seduce con su danza, mucho más que el paladar.

The power of the interminable list of spices that are employed in Indian cuisine resembles a sort of alchemist workshop in this country. It is intimately connected with the countries mysticism, as well as with its traditions. In the particular case of the Rajasthan, we can see that the refined gastronomy of the region can be traced back the time of the Maharajas, who always has been a reference of good taste and sumptuousness, so its cuisine reflects the preferences and pleasures of these kings. Rice is used extensively with flashes of different flavors that intermingle in the masalas to generate intense feelings that we balance with pieces of “roti”; the delicious unleavened bread that accompanies every meal in India , and without which we probably would enter a trance generated by dishes with a very high and unique complexity. The smell permeates the soul and seduce with their dance, much more than the palate.

Un emocionante encuentro cultural - An exciting cultural encounter

With an amazing menu with more than 200 dishes, it is impossible to get bored at this restaurant, which is a culinary institution of Jaipur, temple of luxury and an international benchmark for the whole India. It is a true sybaritic culture heritage of Rajasthan, located in Amber Fort, which in turn has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Royal dining, entertainment for dinner, cuisine at its finest expression and flavors inspired by the Maharajah; elements of a formula that could be not reproduced in any other part of the world, not as in 1135 AD, whose warmly lit atmosphere completely palatial, romantic and elegant, enchants the senses through an exceptional service, Sufi music and superbly decoration.

The flavors are unique and different. Each element is on its point -especially meats and seafood-. A must for authentic Rajasthani experience is the Lal maans, a delicious sacucer that here is masterfully cooked. To dinner at 1135 AD is one of the most delightful experiences of Rajasthan. We simply could not ignore the number one restaurant in Jaipur and a must for any visitor to the great India.

IN SEASON Chickpeas (GARBANZO BEANS)

Chickpeas appear in early recordings in Turkey well over 5000 years ago. India produces the most chickpeas worldwide but they are grown in more than 50 countries. An excellent source of carbohydrates, protein, fiber, B vitamins, and some minerals, they are a nutritious staple of many diets. The name chickpea comes from the Latin word cancer, referring to the plant family of legumes, Fabaceae. It is also known by its popular Spanish-derived name, the garbanzo bean. Kidney beans, black beans, lima beans, and peanuts are other familiar foods found in this legume family.
