As we embark on our culinary journey in this food trail we leave the suburbs of Nizamuddin. Now, we travel towards one of the oldest mosque in the world – ‘Jama Masjid’. Here, you will get a true vibe of what Ramadan stands for. While at it, you will also step into a world of delicacies beyond your wildest dreams. The aromas of the spices will tingle your sensations and you will rediscover the true limit of your appetite. Here’s Part 2 of our Ramadan Food Trail.
