India Food Tours
India can hardly be discussed in a few words; a full book wouldn’t do it justice. From the Himalayan Mountains to the tropics of Kerala, here you’ll find a land of warm and friendly people, hundreds of languages, and endless adventure.

Try thick and juicy jalebis, fried potato cutlets drenched in chutney, or paranthas stuffed with potato, onion, cottage cheese, cauliflower, and more. And of course, there are the classics like fried or butter chicken. In fact, there are even opportunities to cook with local families.

Some of the vendors working here have been doing so for decades and have passed down the honour through generation after generation. Grilled meats, especially chicken, are easy to come by. But if you’re a vegetarian, you’re in luck as well. Some popular favourites include spicy potato curry, and many varieties of chaat.Read More ...
