As Ramadan sweeps across the globe, including India, Rahul Gandhi, a prominent member of the Congress party, opted to partake in the festivities in Delhi's renowned Chandni Chowk, a foodie's paradise. Amidst his visit, he took the opportunity to sample the fabled "Mohabbat Ka Sharbat," an exclusive, refreshing summer beverage with hints of watermelon and rose syrup, emblematic of the old-fashioned style of Delhi.

The renowned Pyaar Mohabbat Sharbat obtains its vibrant pink hue from fresh watermelon chunks immersed in a blend of rooh afza, milk, and ice cubes. It not only satiates your thirst but also alleviates discomfort during the scorching heat. Nonetheless, the true essence of this exceptional elixir is only obtainable at Nawab Qureshi's stall, situated near Jama Masjid and adjacent to Aslam Chicken Corner.

During his excursion, Mr. Gandhi paid a visit to a renowned sharbat vendor situated in the Matia Mahal vicinity, along with several other dining establishments. Post that, he straightaway proceeded to the popular Al Jawahar Restaurant to savour their succulent kebabs. Accompanying him in devouring every bite was the esteemed food writer and blogger, Kunal Vijaykar. Scores of individuals gathered in droves to catch a glimpse of the esteemed politician. Each year, the "Mecca of Iftar Delights," Chandni Chowk, lures a large crowd with its delectable cuisine during Ramadan.

On the other hand, Mr. Gandhi visited the Bengali Market near Connaught Place before heading to Old Delhi. It is a hotspot for chaats, and he indulged in an assortment of fruits and savoured the delectable golgappas and aloo tikki at Nathu Sweets in the esteemed market as his bodyguards formed a cordon around him.
