|The food throughout my stay in Delhi was absolutely delicious. So tasty, that I tucked in and totally forgot to get any photos of the fantastic meals I ate. Indian food is mostly vegetarian with vibrant colours, is rich and spicy in taste. Meat dishes were those with chicken. When eating out Menus split dishes by North and South Indian food.
By far the best meals I had were those with Neha’s family at Neha’s parent’s apartment. They were exquisitely tasting dishes that amazed my tastebuds and were complemented by great company.
But there are three particular meals out that I’ll always remember. The first was a lunchtime treat with Neha’s sisters and brothers-in-law on my first full day in Delhi. The second was the Wedding meal. And the third was a meal in an Officers Mess at an Army Base arranged by and with the immediate family.
Food I Liked: Alu Matar (spiced potatoes with mixed veg), Butter Chicken
Chana Masala (chickpeas), Naan Bread, Garlic Naan Bread, Pulao Rice and many other dishes that I can’t remember the names of.
The desserts were like gifts from the divine. I enjoyed them all including RasMalai (which was my favourite), Gulab jambu (a sticky sweet deep fried dough), Sweet Milk Pudding, Payasam (sugar, milk and noodles) and other delectable desserts that I can’t remember the names of.
In the next blog post titled My India Adventure (Part 5) – Gandhi’s Grave & India Gate, I will be writing all about Gandhi and India Gate. It will be coming soon, so keep coming back to check for updates.
