Breakfast Trail @ Old Delhi

Let us take you on an adventure that your taste buds won’t forget

The busiest of all places, Puraani Dilli, (Old Delhi) is somewhat serene in the mornings. The quietness of the place, however, speaks volumes. With lonely lanes and less people around, the walk across this area will take you back to the black and white era. The elaborated complex pattern of wires slightly higher in the sky, the historical architectural patterns and the creative ability to design a khopcha (shop built in almost no place) is a distinct feature particular to puraani dilli alone. It might emerge as a hyperbolic remark when one states that the by lanes of this walled city speak to you about their own history. Such serene settings in the morning can make anyone crave for a walk, not only because of the tranquil experience, but to relish the most eclectic menu served at this place.

The beauty of an early walk relies upon savouring the delectable dishes available only in the mornings. Much of them include Bedmi Pooris - a puffy, hefty, deep-fried puri-like bread made of wheat flour, spices, and dal, which is served with a spicy aloo sabzi, or potato curry; Pitthi and Matar kachori - a proper Delhi preparation, with peas/dal stuffing, spiced up with condiments, served hot with potato gravy; Paneer Pakoda - huge cubes of cottage cheese immersed in a flour batter, and then deep fried; Nahari - a sumptuous non-vegetarian dish cooked overnight with hot curry spices; Paaye - with soup like consistency, Paaye is considered to be a royal food, made of goat's trotters and is usually eaten for breakfast. Sweets usually made of milk and milk solids are served hot in the mornings, some of which include Jalebi; Nagori Halwa - a small, crispy, crumbly puri made with suji (semolina) and ghee, paired with suji halwa, a sweet, dry porridge likewise cooked in ghee; Moong dal halwa - split green gram dal, further pounded, roasted, and mixed well with sugar, milk and milk solids; Gulab Jamun a dessert, similar to a dumpling, made of milk, sugar and milk solids, taken along with sugar syrup; Kheer - a rice pudding made of milk and sugar, garnished beautifully with dry fruits. Besides this, the trail has many more dishes to serve you with. Delhi Food Walks has gained expertise, having explored the lanes over a walk, and is cognizant of what suits the non-Indian stomach the best and thus you will often be asked by the hosts to avoid certain food items too. Rest assured, mates!

Tea Trail

Growing on the banks of the Bhramaputra, the slopes of the Himalayas, and into the south, Indian teas are known for their dazzling variety. From black to white, green to oolong and from Assam to Darjeeling, tea is simply the king of brews.

Dilliwalas simply love their tea, after water, it is the first thing served to guests. Irrespective of the season, taking a chai break is always justified at any place, anytime and anywhere. It is also every mother's first line of defence against diseases, due to its medicinal properties. Tea infused with a variety of Indian spices adds a punch to this beverage.

As Delhi acquires the trappings of a modern metropolis, the carts dedicated exclusively to serving tea, which once could be found at almost every kilometre in the city are now becoming fewer. With the upcoming of many of many chai houses in the city, Delhi is now a home to this changing trend.

Delhi Food Walks is all geared up to refresh your senses with its upcoming TEA TRAIL. This trail intends to walk you through the changing tea culture of this city, from ‘nukkadki chai’ to posh tea houses, this walk promises you an enriching experience. You can devour on the tea time snacks that every Dilliwala swears by – rusk, fen, matthi, murku, namakpaarey, gathiya, khattameetha mixture, aloolachcha and many more which perfectly compliment the tea.

The walk will start with exploring the lanes of PuraniDilli and sipping the Golden Chai – tea with a special topping of almonds and saffron, Kashmiri Laal Chai and a Malaichai at shops which arehanded over from father to son, most of them now being managed by the fourth or fifth generations. 

Our next stop will be a chai house located in the plush and posh South Delhi, where some very interesting and unusual flavours of chai await you. Then we head to a restaurant for a lip smacking South Indian lunch. For some inspiration and motivation then we head towards ITO to meet Mr.LaxmanRao, who is the author of 24 books and the owner of a tea stall. We finally wrap up the trail by visiting a tea house for an exclusive and exotic tea tasting session.

The elaborate complex pattern of wires rises slightly high in the sky, the historical architectural patterns and the creative ability to design a khopcha (a shop built in almost no place) is a distinct feature, particular to Old Delhi alone. It might emerge as a hyperbolic remark when one states that the by-lanes of this walled city speak to their observers about their own history. Experience the delight of exploring these special age old streets through a bazaar walk followed by lunch in Old Delhi. To name a few more streets, Chandni Chowk, Dariba Kalan, Kinari Bazaar, Fatehpuri, Gali Batashe Wali, Khari Baoli(spice market), Chawri Bazaar and Nai Sadak.
