Food

During the holiday, you will be served breakfast daily at all hotels, except at Pachewargar, where dinner is also included. Lunches and dinners will be at your own cost.

One word that fully validates the eminence of Indian food is “variety.” Like the vast and glorious Indian sub-continent, the food of this country holds the distinction of being exceedingly diverse and opulent. In fact, it is a culmination of regional culinary traditions and novel gastronomic experiences.

From the classic Mughlai cuisine of the north to the spicy yet delicious dishes of the south, the variety and richness of the Indian menu often startles the first-time visitors. The only way to explore the true variety of Indian food is by traveling around India. Each region has its own special spices, dishes, and cooking techniques.

Northern India is highly influenced by Mughlai food. The mainstay of Punjabi and North Indian food is meat and bread. Known for its mouth-watering tastes and exquisite flavors, this food is usually cooked in a tandoor, which is a clay oven heated by burning charcoal.

Most of the North Indian curries come laden with thicker curd-based gravies. Popular Punjabi dishes are naan, sheekh kebab, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, butter chicken, chole-bhature, samosa, and daal makhani (lentils in a butter based gravy).
