In this Tour:
• Walk through a local food market and get familiarised with the indispensible ingredients of North Indian cooking, which along with vital spices and condiments, includes some fascinating rules and taboos associated with food and religion.
• After rousing your taste buds, proceed to visit a Hindu home for an interactive cooking session, which offers insights into the customs and habits of locals, rather than a cooking class with professional chefs.
• At the Hindu home, you can either contribute to cooking a scrumptious meal or sit back and relax while the lady of the house works her magic. If you wish, you can also take notes, ask questions and photograph the transformation of the raw ingredients to a vegetarian ‘thali’ meal.
• Enjoy a lunch comprising of roti (the basic staple which is made from unleavened wheat) accompanied by vegetable-based dishes, dal, salads, pickles, papad and dessert.

TOUR NOTES: Please note, the food on the street is delicious but does not meet national or international hygiene standards. Although we only go to very popular places, with good local reputations, these stalls do not cook using bottled water or wash their utensils with it. So eating street food is always risky. If you prefer not to risk it, but still want to see what it’s all about, then at the end of the walk, we can take you to Haldirams where you can try chaats and other popular dishes in safe and hygienic conditions.
