The Great Indian Food Festival


Last month in the heart of India, the Great Indian Food Festival returned with over 75 mouth-watering stalls offering tastes of foods from various states of the nation. The festival, which is the second edition of the named festival included a range of food from over 12 Indian states such as parathas (which are Indian originated flatbreads) kebabs, halwas (which are sweet desserts) ice creams, butter chicken and chaat, a savoury snack typically served on the road side.

Chief Manager, Rekesh Juneja, stated that the food festival started last year in 2015 as they wanted to bring something new to the people of Dilli Haat. In addition to this, it is said that the food was prepared by the vendors and Juneja explained that the idea of this was to allow the promotion of their businesses.

He stated that this was a steady platform for the vendors to build a bigger base in order to promote their specialised culinary skills. The idea was followed by several of 2015’s vendors being approached by many customers regarding food services for weddings, parties and several other occasions.

As well as food stalls, the festival included many activities in order to keep visitors from all around occupied including live cooking showcases, Sufi night, performances from school children and food photography.
