Subject: EYHO india! Day 8 to pure bliss
Following Jaipur, we took Udaipur by storm. Weariness from the long road transfer miraculoulsy fell away upon arrival at our palace-hotel on the shores of beautiful Lake Pichola.
As evening fell, we took in a Rajasthani cooking lesson on the manicured lawns of Shree Niwas Palace courtesy of Maharana Shriji Mewar.
We sampled the fabled Laal Maas and learnt how to impart smoky Rajasthani flavour using nothing but a piece of charcoal, a steel bowl and some ghee. In addition we cooked Lilwa paneer using fresh Bengal gram, and Methi Murgh.
Thanks to Tanuja, a private cocktail reception followed with the Maharana on his palace terrace overlooking the lake under a nearly full moon. The group’s common refrain: “I could get used to living like this”!
