Mumbai's Iranian culinary tradition fading

Iranian joints that first opened in the 19th century facing competition from chains and street vendors.

    India's "Irani" restaurants are a relic of its culinary past.

    They have been popular in Mumbai since they were first opened in the 19th century by Iranian immigrants.

    But many of them are closing because of competition from fast food chains and street vendors.
