Old Delhi flavours, anyone?

Round up the family. Call up your friends. Get everyone together because food is served. Dilli Haat has a food festival on.

Gunjun Goela, consultant chef at a big-wig chain of hotels, is responsible for having brought to you twenty vendors from Puraani Dilli to work their magic on your taste buds.

One such vendor MD Gulzar is thrilled to talk about his five chuski flavours. He recommends his kala-khataa. Other flavours are rose, orange, khus and masala lemon.

What about the real food? Did someone say Nahari?

At Sajid and Ishtiak's stall, everything, including Nahari, will be priced at Rs 150. The duo will also whip up Qorma, Biryani, and Pasanda rolls — ghosht with badam, khus khus and pepper in white gravy. The less you know about the dessert, the better for your waistline. Still, don't be surprised when you spot the kheer.

But what's an Old Delhi food festival without representation from paranthe waali galli? Look no further. Abhishek, fifth generation owner of Pandit Kanhaiya Lal Durga Prasad Dixit Paranthe wale, promises his speciality.

"Hari mirch wale paranthe," he says, also, "tamatar ke, bhindi ke, karele ke, nimbu ke, pudhina ke…" And more.
