Emirati cuisine a star attraction at International
Food Festival in Delhi

New Delhi | March 3, 2019

Emirati cuisine was a star attraction at a week-long International Food and Fashion Festival commenced in New Delhi on March 3, 2019.  A number of countries, supported by their embassies in New Delhi are taking part into the festival with a variety cuisines ranging from the UAE and France to Tunisia and Japan.

Emirati Chef Khulood Atiq presented four of her favourite dishes on the opening night. Indian gourmands and foreign diplomats who attended the opening night were seen enquiring about the ingredients and method of preparation of these Emirati dishes, some of which were making their debut in the Indian capital. 

Chef Khulood explained that some of Emirati cooking is similar, yet different, from dishes in the Indian sub-continent. The similarities come from the use of Indian spices widely prevalent in cooking in the Gulf, but a key difference is lesser use of chillies. For the ongoing food festival, Khulood is attempting fusion between Emirati and Indian cooking.

On the occasion, Fashion designer Shamsa Almheiri from the UAE showcased the latest Emirati designs at a fashion show which drew enthusiastic cheers and standing ovation on the opening night. Arab countries taking part in the festival include Tunisia and Palestine, in addition to the UAE.
