Ahead of the festival, the vendors were trained in food hygiene and safety standards. Sessions were also organised for them so that they could develop a better business sense.

“With our main focus being the food the vendors are offering, we have taken steps to ensure that it is a wholesome experience by including fun-filled activities during the day, and music and dance performances later in the evening,” they added.

Visitors will also be able to see street vendors showcasing live preparations.

Some of the dishes on offer include Rajkot ki Tandoori Chai, Puducherry Peri-Peri Chicken, Assamese Bamboo Chicken, Raagi Idli, Raagi Baal, Mahua ke Phool ki Bhajia, Ayodhya ki Kulhad Dahi Jalebi, Kashmir se Tabak Maaz, Kerala ka Malabar Parotta, Naryaal Gravy, Pokka Vada, Karnataka ka Chicken 65 and Jabalpuri Mava Jalebi.
