Zaika-e-Nizamuddin is one of the best Non-Veg Restaurants In India.
As the name implies, Zaika-e-Nizamuddin is Nizamuddin’s ‘zaika’ or flavours, which have been passed down through the generations in this 700-year-old living tradition.
Food from ZeN also provides a glimpse of Nizamuddin’s culture as well as a pleasant sensation of contentment, all neatly packaged in a box of kebabs or a bowl of biryani. That is what distinguishes it!
At ZeN we never use preservatives or frozen ingredients in our cooking. All the products made by the women are prepared by hand, in small batches under strict hygienic and safe working conditions.
It is a women’s enterprise from Basti Hazrat Nizamuddin preparing and selling the famous Mughlai cuisine and healthy homemade snacks.
Currently supported under the project, ZeN is thriving to become an independent women enterprise. The members of ZeN, perfecting their art day after day, are in the process of emerging into professional chefs and also managers managing their enterprise.
The main objective for the future is to function as a sustainable, profitable and independent enterprise providing sustained , enhanced and dignified incomes to its members.
The group has evolved into an enterprise owned by 10 confident women perfecting their art day after day, taking baby steps towards regaining their lost identities. It is not just empowering but also endearing to see the ‘bajis’ of Nizamuddin dressed in aprons and head gear, making haleem using their grandmother’s recipe in a fully safe and hygienic bawarchi khana.
