NEW DELHI:  It was not ‘biryani diplomacy’ but biryani itself in which the five-member Pakistani Joint Investigation Team, which visited India, was seemingly interested in. Indian food was more on their mind rather than the Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists, who carried out attack at the Pathankot air base on January 2.

From Old Delhi Karim’s Jahangiri Korma, Tandoori Burra, Roghni Naan and Khamiri Roti to Balushahi from Hira Sweets of Laxmi Nagar, the delegation was served a sumptuous platter with different delicacies each time it demanded.

On the very first day they landed in Delhi, they were kept in ITC Maurya hotel where they had North Indian food, which included tandoori chicken and other delicacies like Dal Bukhara. 

The second day, after a meeting with their Indian counterparts at the National Investigation Agency (NIA) headquarters, they were taken to Shangri La Hotel for lunch, a senior NIA officer told The Sunday Standard. There, it was again tandoori items and mutton delicacies. 

The third day was again spent at the NIA headquarters where lunch was sourced from old Delhi’s famous Karim’s restaurants.
