‘One can experience the essence of a country through its food, and what better way to do that other than India’s food trails.’
In the bylanes of India’s sprawling cities, tantalizing aromas emanate through streets, kiosks, markets are a world onto themselves and recipes are passed down through generations. Exploring India is not only about the architectural work of art or the ancient civilization from the times of Akbar or even before that; India is nothing without its authentic food.
Lined with an array of pure and authentic ghee-loaded Punjabi cuisines, to fiery Bengali food, lip-smacking street delicacies in Delhi, or relishing seafood in Goa, there is something for everyone out there.
The flavourful adventure of exploring the Nizami cuisine in Hyderabad, mixed with the local aroma of Biryanis and buttery fruit biscuits, to exclusive meaty-creations in the streets of Lucknow, the divine Pasanda in Sheermal in the old city of Lucknow, is where you will find the authentic taste of Hyderabadi Cuisine.
The culinary adventure is not only limited to Hyderabad. The mouthwatering street food of Delhi cannot be missed. Strolling through the narrow bustling lanes of the walled city of Shahjahanabad to cherish the delicious kebabs of Khan Chacha or the finger-licking momos of Dolma Aunty, Delhi is a destination where you will find the local food from all over India.
But if you are a fan of Lamb, then Kashmiri Wazwan is one you cannot miss. Meticulously prepared with the local spices, this multi-course dish is the one that will let you experience the combination of herbs, with sweets and trust us, you won’t regret it. An art and a point of pride among the Kashmiris, we don’t think there is a better way to relish the local Kashmiri cuisine and delicacies than the Kashmiri Wazwan.
But what strikes the most to travellers is the potpourri of different lifestyles- the city of dreams, Mumbai. Being the financial capital of India, people from contrasting cultures have made Mumbai their home, bringing the local delicacies from over the country. The best way to experience the regional cuisines from around the country is to push ourselves into the cookery lessons in Mumbai.
Exploring the cultural differences while experiencing similarity among the food is what remains in travellers’ minds long after they visit this lip-smackingly rich country.
