Food & Drinks Tours In India


Indian cuisine is as diverse as the country’s topography, and almost as nuanced as its culture. The cuisine embraces such diverse tenets, each with a unique school of thought, technique of preparation and usage of ingredients, that you can’t ever claim to know - or have - sampled ‘Indian food’ for what it is worth. India celebrates its cuisine, and no better place to set out on a culinary journey than the national capital, New Delhi, one of the world’s oldest inhabited cities and the political centre of many powerful dynasties. Delhi by virtue of being a historical city with generations of Mughal rulers influencing it art and culinary scene, is a haven for Mughlai cuisine, to say the least. And among best food activities in India, there are several tailored to give you a flavor of this rich heritage at the Jama Masjid area. With the white domes of Shah Jahan’s Jama Masjid looming in the backdrop, tuck into succulent mutton kebabs with rumali roti, and some mint chutney at the street-side stalls. This is an eating district, and everything that makes up Mughlai cuisine, from sheermal, rogan josh, nalli nihari, mutton biryani to korma and phirni - are dished out here at numerous little eateries at throwaway prices.

There are some amazing food tours in India you can pursue during your travels. If you were to go all the way south to the land of backwaters, Kerala, you would be sampling a lot of sea and freshwater fish rustled up with the traditional spices. Known for its spice plantations, the infusion of exotic spices - cardamom, cinnamon, red chilies to star anise - it offers in its fish and meat preparations are a treat to the taste buds. Goa on India’s western coast along the Arabian Sea is another seafood paradise, but the cuisine here has a distinct Portuguese and Konkan influence. If the fiery pork vindaloo doesn’t moisten your eyes, wait until you sample the Xacuti chicken curry or the spicy Sorpotel, of Portuguese origin made with meat and offal of pork or lamb in a thick, hot gravy. During your stay in Goa, you can even sign up for several cookery classes, or take a food walk to understand the intricacies of the regional cuisine.

Best food activities in India include culinary walks where you can shop at the local market with an expert guide, cook a dish, or visit a local’s home and enjoy the hospitality and some traditional cooking. When you travel up north to Uttarakhand, the mythical land of mountains crossed by the mighty Himalayas, you sense a distinct change in the food scene. The hardcore meat dishes of the capital and the north west frontier province give way to soupy lentils, crunchy greens and plenty of buckwheat and bajra preparations. It’s two regions, Garhwal and Kumaon, serve up their own specialties that range from Kandalee ka Saag, Kumaoni raita, Garhwal ka Fannah and the aromatic Bhang ki Chutney prepared from hemp seeds. There are many things to do in India if you are interested in the sun and sand, and don’t mind catching a golden tan. Head out to the Andaman & Nicobar Islands on a cruise, and drop anchor at the Havelock Island. This sun-kissed white sand and turquoise water paradise also serves up some delectable seafood in traditional style. While there is a vast multi-cuisine offering, most of its all day diners do a good job of the deep sea delights of the likes of barracuda, king crab, lobster, white snapper aside from clams, mussels and prawns. Sip on the nectar of a baby coconut and take in the solitude of this tropical paradise. Of the array of must do activities in India - even food-wise - you will be left spoilt for choice.
