Shahi Iftaari Dastarkhwaan at Old Delhi
It’s the holy month of Ramzaan and Delhi’s streets leading up to Jama Masjid are a riot of lights, colors, festive gaiety and obviously food!! And this year, as in the previous years we are ready to host you….in the brightly lit market alleys of Old Delhi and into the holy courtyard of Jama Masjid….for a cultural experience like no other!
As the evening prayers progress, you are awestruck, by the scenes unfolding around you and watching the transforming colours and lights of the grand mosque, we next head out to the evening’s food destination, the ‘Shahi Mehfil Restaurant’, our hospitality partners ,at a stone’s throw away from Jama Masjid.
We settle down for the ‘Shahi Iftaari Dastarkhwaan’ feast menu which has been curated from the finest kitchens and ‘khansamas'(chefs/cooks) of some of the oldest families of Old Delhi. Platters of traditional vegetarian and meat delicacies, to be washed down with suitable Iftaar beverages, will then be laid out for us in the traditional ‘sitting-on-ground’ dastarkhwan style, where with the feast, you are treated with tales from our ‘jhola’ of stories so that you learn more about the traditions associated with Ramzaan!
All of this , done with the blend of DBF’s unique fun, anecdotal storytelling with photography and food opportunities.
