Welcome to Shahjahanabad, the walled city of Delhi built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahanabad in 1639. Today, it comprises areas in and around Chandni Chowk and Jama Masjid, and while the crumbling walls haven't been able to keep modernity at bay, life here still presents a contrast to the rest of the capital.
During <em>iftar</em>, Old Delhi becomes a paradise for food connoisseurs. The lane opposite Jama Masjid - Bazar Matia Mahal - is filled with heady aromas from big heaps of <em>keema samosas</em>, vats of buffalo <em>biryani</em>, grilling <em>botis</em> and kebabs and hot <em>paneer jalebi</em>. To cool down, there are drums filled with Rooh Afza sherbet and dishes of <em>dahi vada</em>. But with so many choices, where will you find the best feast? Here are 11 of my favourite <em>iftar</em> eateries in the area.
