Experience the culture, history and intensely colourful world of food in India on the IFN Food Safari. Join us on a trek to the Himalayas on a Guchchi hunt to understand what makes it one of the most expensive mushrooms in the world. Explore the flavours of an authentic Galouti Kebab, a delicacy that was first created for a Nawab with no teeth! Or journey back to the 6th Century with us we trace how Ayurveda travelled from India to the Middle East and then to Greece and the rest of Europe. Each episode is a zesty narrative that brings the stories behind the foods of India to life.
The first episode is the story of Nalli Nihari - the quintessential single meal eaten for sehri (pre-fast meal) during the month of Ramadan. The Nihari began its life as a peasant dish before it was refined into one fit for the royal courts of Shah Jahan. Want to know where we go for our favourite Nihari?
