The last day of Food Festival of India (Delhi Edition) drew large number of visitors. This festival started on 21 November and concluded on 23 November, at Dilli Haat Janak Puri. The animated festival, celebrating the diversity of street food in Delhi, is being organised by Aspirants Events in association with Delhi Tourism.

The festival brought crowds of people out of their homes to experience the mouthwatering delicacies offered at the venue. Street food is a unique attraction in Delhi's cuisine and authentic dishes with distinct flavours were heartily offered at this three day event.

Foodies from parts of old Delhi and NCR region were given a unique platform to herald the old favourites with a twist of new flavours. From Chole Bhature, to Jalebis and even Jalebas, there was no stopping to the big carving of street food for Delhities. Lebanese Shawarmas cooked with Indian alterations, Kebabs, Tikkas along with other food items were gracefully served to satisfy Delhi's big appetite.

Dilli Haat Janak Puri successfully hosted the food extravaganza and has a set a benchmark for similar upcoming events in the city.There were nearly 20 food stalls offering their own unique variety. Some of them included Anmol Chicken wala from Chandni Chowk, Jai Baba Thakur wale and Jung Bahadur Kachori Wale. Some of the street food vendors at Dilli Haat Janak Puri have been into business for nearly 40-50 years and have thoroughly understood the diverse tastes of foodies in Delhi.

With large number of people visiting Dilli Haat Janak Puri, this festival was a unique space for visitors for not only tasting delicacies but also learning about cooking them. While relishing the food, people also got exposed to its cooking style and got to learn about creating new flavours.

The festival was accompanied by animated cultural performances by artists from North Central Zone Cultural Centre, Ministry of Culture, Government of India. Folk dancers from states like Rajasthan, Bihar, UP, Himachal Pradesh and Chhattisgarh enthralled the food lovers with their fascinating performance at the venue.
