During my stay in Rajasthan (Jodhpur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer and Barmer) we used to visit many hotels and restaurants. Though non-veg restaurants were less in Rajasthan still we get some non-veg hotels, where my favorite was spicy lal maas and crispy tanduri roti with salad. this is a traditional Rajasthani Mutton dish that is spicy and deep red in color which goes well with Indian tanduri roti or rice.
