Jodhpur has a hot and dry climate, with occasional rains during monsoon, and is known as Sun City for the bright sunshine it enjoys throughout the year. But its more famous sobriquet is blue city; Jodhpur is also home of some unique food items such as Makhaniya Lassi, Mawa Kachori, Pyaaj Kachori and Mirchibada (a hot and spicy food), which are much sought after in the northern parts of India. Jodhpur's heart beats in its crowded bazaars, in the maze of jumbled lanes, in the warmth and hospitality of a hardy desert people.
