People often mistake Goan food to be nothing more than fish, deep fried or grilled, much like they mistake the natural splendour here to only be restricted to beaches.

When it comes to food and Lucknow, biryani is a dish that has to come up. This is a vibrant dish of fluffy rice, succulent meat and heady aromas. A Lakhnavi or Awadhi biryani is truly one of the richest and yet, the most simplest of dishes there are. Unlike the biryanis one would find down South or even in central India, an Awadhi biryani is much less masala heavy and more bent toward the aromas and layered flavours.

Sitting at the very top of Worli, the vast grey magnificence of the Worli fort is hard to miss. This lesser known historic landmark in Mumbai has stood the test of time and often sheer negligence. The fort which provides a stunning view point of the sea and the city, isn't the first choice of most travellers who overlook its magnificence because of the location.
