If food is your religion, then the holy month of Ramadan has to be the most eventful on your calendar — the aroma of the succulent kebabs, fried paranthas dipped in mutton korma or chicken jahangiri, crispy snacks like matthi and namak-paare with a piping hot glass of chai or icy-cold flavored milk — the list is never-ending.

And to make Iftar evenings more memorable, “India City Walks” will be organising a gastronomic tour across the walls of the old city in the national capital during Ramadan.
