Who can resist those greasy poori chole, thick, stuffed parathas, hot and syrupy jalebis, melt-in-the mouth shamis…
If you love these Delhi delicacies, then its time to drop by Dilli Haat for an unusual food festival, that will showcase traditional ‘Dilli Ka Khana @ Dilli Haat, INA Market’ brought to you by Delhi Tourism. If you are a Delhi-ite you should know that Delhi-ites live to eat, and if you are not a Delhi-ite, you will find out soon enough!
Eating is a favourite pastime in Delhi: just look around and you will see people tucking into chaat and tikkis any time of the day, slurping kulfis, and biting into chole bhature, samosas etc. The point to be noted is that Delhi’s street food is so tasty, that it’s hard to resist…
Restaurants in Delhi will offer these delicacies across over 24 stalls: shami and seekh kebabs will be char-grilled before your eyes, tangy chana-bhaturas, aloo-gobi-mooli- kaju ke parathe patted with a dollop of white butter, nagori / moong daal ka halwa, bedmis, poori-aloo, Karim’s tikkas, chilled rabdi, Giani’s (or Roshan’s) kulfi smothered under a mound of falooda and hot pakoras / jalebis fried on the spot.
Nothing beats the dexterity of the deft chaatwalas who serve you golguppas, mix papdi chaat, sprinkle secret masalas on the fruit chaat or serve you hot khasta Jodhpuri kachoris and aloo tikkis with a smear of mint and tamarind chutney all without halting for a breath!
The by-lanes of Old Delhi have always been renowned for this traditional and ever-popular Dilli ka khana, with the wafting aromas and secret recipes. It is only recently that the authentic food of the walled city has taken a step forward and moved to Delhi Haat, where the Dilli ka khana food festival is an eagerly awaited affair by the foodies of Delhi, tourists and by those visiting Delhi.
Summertime brings the tall-cool cocktails brimming as we munch on the new light-as -a dream summer pizzas. Fish and fowl are perfectly seasoned and beautifully dressed while the deserts bust with fresh fruits. The customary good spirits and laughter fill the air in the eatery you know and love. True to form Olive brings you a new and intriguing menu showcasing a host of summer produce with a focus on healthy cooking. The menu has eliminated fried food and replaced it with light oils, wood ovens, char-grilled lean meats and non fatty fish.
The Menu is a true melting pot of countries, ideas and tastes that the chefs have brought from their travels and interpreted in their own personal contemporary style. Keeping the theme light and innovative a large emphasis has been placed on Greek ingredients and for the deep flavours Spain and Italy play a pivotal role.
