Photo Essay : Food at the IITF - Pragati Maidan

Last week, we visited the IITF at Pragati Maidan and the food and food products were definitely the most exciting items for us at the fair.

The food were rather hit and miss. I tried out a wonderful little sweet called Anarsaa from Bihar which was khoya with a rice flour coating seep fried and sprinkled with sesame seeds. This was our first encounter with this sweet and the play on textures and flavours was amazing. The kachoris at the Rajasthani Stall were excellent. The Cuttack Biryani at the Odisha stall was a disaster. Rice was cold and congealed and the curry they spooned on top was more oil than curry. The Chole Bhatura at the Uttaranchal stall was average. Here are pictures of some of the food that was on offer
