    Gastronomy and beyond

Gastronomical journey through India, savouring the colours, smells, sights and tastes that this diverse country has to offer.

TOUR OVERVIEW

India is a continent disguised as a country. The variety is everywhere – in landscapes, languages, people, dresses, customs, festivals; the list goes on. But probably the most diverse of all is the cuisine of India. The culinary map of India is a multicolored mosaic – a smorgasbord of spices, flavours, and techniques. Join us for a journey of foodgasms, interspersed with exploring the beautiful landscapes and majestic monuments.
We take you through the lanes of Delhi for its famous paranthe wali gali (the street of paranthas) and chaat. Watch out for the kebabs and safed gajar ka halwa (white carrot halwa). Amritsar calls us to try its lassi and gulabjamun. It is said that you need atleast a month to taste what Amritsar has to offer, but we will try our best. The fish tikka that made the world drool, needs to be sampled! We dig at the traditional Rajasthani cuisine in Jaipur complete with dal bati. And you cannot forget the jalebis, can you?

Observe how the taste and ingredients change as we move from north to west and then to south. Kerala has a whole another world to offer you. Try the unassuming yet delicious idlis that form the backbone of every breakfast, and the fresh sea food offerings – Karimeen Pollichattu and Prawn curry, to name few. Let the taste of coconut win you over. Munch on coconut chips and sip on filter coffee. Moving east, we try the fresh water fishes of West Bengal and pair them up with unbelievable yummy rosogollas.

Whether you want to just eat or try your hands at cooking them, it is going to be a lot of fun. If you have to understand a culture, understand their food. What better place to start than here?
