Experience the soul of Old Delhi by walking down the historic lanes of Shahjahanabad. We will start with a brief history about the iconic Lal Quila, which was the residence of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal. After that we will briefly explore the Jain and Hindu religious architectures along the narrow lanes of this street market. This will be followed by a visit to a Sikh worshipping site called Gurudwara to understand the basic tenets of Sikhism and to discover their community kitchen services from close quarters.
After a little sightseeing, we will start our culinary adventure with the famous Aloo Tikki or shallow fried potato patty on the street of Chandni Chowk and enjoy a scrumptious meal of Parantha i.e. Deep-fried stuffed flat Indian bread from the iconic centuries-old lane called Gali Paranthe Wali. After that, we will take a little sneak peek into the vibrant and colorful market which is the hub of wedding shopping. Post this, we will go exploring a 17th-century street market full of Silver jewelers present since Mughal times, where we will try the Samosa and Indian version of Pretzel called Jalebi at an almost 150 year old eatery.
After the satiating meal, we will take a short tuk-tuk ride to Asia's biggest spice market to have a look at a variety of both local and exotic spices followed by a visit to a 24-hours flower market. Here we will take an invigorating tea break. This whole experience is quite surreal.
Finally we will dive into a lip-smacking array of succulent Kebabs, Korma, butter chicken and luscious rice pudding in the lanes historic lanes in and around Jama Masjid, Delhi's biggest mosque. From there, we will head towards our final stop to indulge in different flavors of Kulfi or the Indian version of Ice-cream at over a century old Kulfi shop.
