Travelers in Delhi Have a lot on their plate. Mughal monuments like the hulking Red Fort and the elegant Jama Masjid, India's largest Mosque loom above the city's myriad bazaars and the dusty homes of forgotten poets. But no matter how much there is to explore, locals and visitors alike always return to Delhi's most beloved haunt: Karim's.

Mughlai MagiciansA cycle rickshaw ride from the Chandni Chowk metro stop, Karim's is neither soaring fortress nor ancient temple, yet it is an unmissable landmark nonetheless often filled to capacity with the faithful. This drab roadside dhaba (for eatery)serves up the most authentic Mughlai fare in the city which is what you might expect considering who runs the place. Haji Zahiruddin comes from a family whose bloodline extends back to the chefs who conjured elaborate feasts in the courts of Mughal emperors. Generations of chefs honed their culinary wizardry in the nearby Red Fort until the last Mughal Ruler was toppled by the last British ruler in 1857. Returning to Delhi in 1911 after his family spent decades in exile. Haji Karimuddin, the grandfather of the present owner , setup shop in the same alleyway where his descendents now prepare their family recipes, each one a closely guarded secret.

They are certainly secrets worth keeping. Sumptuous curries like the lazeez murg saag ( A spicy chicken and spinach dish) or the Badshahi badaam pasanda (tender chunks of mutton simmered in a tangy almond paste) complement perfectly the selection of succulent grilled meats from the tandoor, an array of of flavorful rice biryanis studded with dried fruits and pungent spices and the steaming hot naans and rotis. Best of all these regal delights still come at dhaba prices. In this imperial city even paupers can eat like kings.

Haji Noor-Uddin hailed from a family of royal cooks which served, among others, Emperor Akbar. Nidhi Sharma profiles the man behind Delhi's legendary restaurants, Karim's who passed away on 8th June, 1998.
"A chef par excellence, a man who loved food and relished it, a man who had the will and the right business acumen to make his father's dream a living reality - Haji Noor-Uddin Ahmed, the man on whom lies the onus of making the name of Old Delhi's Karim Hotels synonymous with delectable Mughlai cuisine."

In Quest Of The Perfect Biryani
".......The dining area is spotlessly clean and Smacks of Good Hygiene. .....To put in a nut shell, the food at Karim's is astounding. It seemed perfect to be true. It had not an extra ounce of oil or fat despite comfortable levels of Chillies......got carried away by the succulent pieces of chicken, mild flavours, the appetising aroma of charcoal grilled meats...."

Every item on the menu at Karim's is a celebration of the special mughlai cuisine that fed, and probably enslaved, the royals to their cooks who, it turns out, have been making parallel history, by winning their way into the people's hearts

"....it is only hotel in India to be listed by the Los Angles Times under the global eateries offering correspondence courses....a special feature on the Mughal era in the National Geographic makes eulogistic references to Karim's....where a taste of past is celebrated ....every time on the menu is a celebration of the special mughlai cuisine that fed and probably enslaved the Royals to their cooks, who in turn have been making parallel history by making their way into people's heart through their stomachs...."
