Nandi is a Nizari Isma'ili ceremony during which food offered to the Imam-e Zaman is sold off at auction to people attending the Jamatkhana (the Ismaili place of worship). The money obtained through the sale of Nandi is sent to the Imam by a group of people from the Ismaili community (Jama'at) given that responsibility. The people in charge of selling the food are volunteers from the Jama'at, they announce what is on the plate and members of the Jama'at put their hands up to buy it. The preparation of the food is done at home and it is brought to the Jamatkhane, the Mukhi (Ismaili minister) mentions the food during a blessing and tells the congregation that it has been offered to the Imam and the benefits of it are for the whole Jamat, the food is known as "Mehmani." If no physical Mehmani has been brought to the Jamatkhana then a symbolic plate called the "Mehmani plate" can be touched during the Du'a Karavi ceremony, this serves as a substitute for physical food.
