There are several Lassiwala shops in Jaipur, so it’s hard to know which one is the best. Honestly, I think that they all make a really great glass of lassi, so it doesn’t matter which one you go to. My favourite Lassiwala shop is located on Johari Bazar Road, between MI Road and Tripolia Bazar Road. However, the original one is on MI Road, opposite Niros Restaurant, called Shop 312.

Jaipur Lassi


[singlepic id=3383 w=720 h=560 float=center]


Jaipur lassi is one of the best in India. There are countless ‘lassiwalas‘ in the old city of Jaipur, and I’m sure they all make a really good glass of Jaipur lassi.

The original Lassiwala is at Shop 312 on MI Road, next to Niros Restaurant. There are, at least, a couple more Jaipur lassi shops to the right of the original shop, as well as a few on Johari Bazar Road that I know of.

If you’re wondering what ‘Lassiwala’ means, it is an Indian term for someone who makes lassi. Lassi is an Indian drink made from dahi (thick yogurt). There are many flavours of lassi, such as mango, rose, strawberry and more, however, nothing tastes quite as good as the original, plain lassi.

The taste of the lassi depends on the quality and thickness of the dahi. It has to be made from the highest grade of milk. Also important, is the malai or cream that they put on the top of the lassi. This is like the ‘icing on the cake’, and gives the lassi an extra edge.

While in Jaipur, we tried two different Lassiwala shops to see which one was better – the original one on MI Road, opposite to Niros Restaurant, and another one on Johari Bazar Road, between Tripolia Bazar Road and MI Road.

Both Lassiwala shops had a regular and a jumbo size for Rs 20 and 40 respectively.

To be honest, I have to say that I prefered the lassi I had at the Lassiwala shop on Johari Bazar Road. The Jaipur lassi was thick and creamy, and the layer of cream at the top was ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ delicious. Also, I like the location on Johari Bazar Road. After sightseeing or shopping in the old city, it was lovely to be able to stop at this shop and get a Jaipur lassi that was refreshing. There were a lot more people at this shop, which could have been a result of, either, the location or the quality of the lassi.

Over our ten weeks, we had countless lassis all over India, and this was the best lassi I had. I like having a lassi from a ‘bhar‘ (clay cup), as it makes the lassi somehow taste that little bit better.

If you’re in Jaipur, you must try a glass of Jaipur lassi. I don’t think it matters which Lassiwala you go to, as I think they all do lassis really well. Pick one that has a lot of local customers, as you know it will be good if the locals go there.
