7 Famous Food Festivals In India That We Cannot Miss
For me travelling is one of the most rewarding experience. Not only I get to see new places and make memories but I also get to taste the amazing local delicacies.
But there are days when I miss the famous Dal Baati from Rajasthan and the Chocolate Churros which I had in Paris. Practically speaking one cannot travel to these places just to have the food.
So in situations like these head to the “Food Festivals”. There you can sample the food, brush up your cooking skills and most importantly satisfy your cravings.
Take a look at them.
