Millets of Mewar

“We are what we eat” or “Jaso Ann Vaso Mann” a revolutionary proverb which lies as the base passion for the two friends who founded Millets of Mewar. Standing as one of India’s top 11 healthiest restaurants, which won’t burn a hole in your wallet, this hippy vibe setting lives up to its fame.

“Only living forms can give nutrition to another living form. Hence, our attempt in the food we prepare is to keep it alive and wholesome. This is why we use traditional nutritious grains, raw or steamed vegetable, and minimise the processing of food so it can be digested quickly and effectively. The longer something stays in your body, the more likely it is to take on a toxic form, and eating the right food can eliminate toxins in your body.”

I had an amazing coconut veggie curry and dad ordered an impressive veggie fried rice (ultimate fried rice eater in the house), both grown from local and organic produce. And, of course, we couldn’t miss out on dessert so next up were the famous millet pancakes! We also left the building with the equally famous millet cookies: s o  g o o d.

You can’t miss the odd bat (or colony of) sweeping by above, adding to the unique-edginess-of-what-could-happen-next sorta’ feeling that goes through your mind.  All in all Millets of Mewar was fantastic, though it took a journeys walk across sleepy cow bridges and looks from locals wondering if we  were genuinely lost ((which we kind of were) (but travel guides say you shouldn’t make this too obvious, so there were a lot of “oh yeah no we are fine thanks sir” episodes)), it was all worth it.
