India

Delhi is a great place for those who love food. It has a diverse food culture and a dizzying range of cuisines to tickle taste buds. The predominant food culture in Delhi is a mixture of North Indian, Mughlai and Punjabi cuisines. But Delhi is also a place to sample food from different regions of India. Punjabi food is what is known as "Indian food" in most parts of the world, and is characterized by rich, buttery dishes and a heavy use of breads and other wheat products. Popular Punjabi foods include channa kulcha (chickpeas served with thick, grilled bread), dal makhani (buttery black lentils), and shahi paneer (cubed Indian cheese in tomato cream sauce). Mughlai food traces its roots back to the Muslim invasion of North India, and is characterized by its many rich meat dishes (notably chicken and mutton).
