Ramadan Delicacies

Ramadan Delicacies
It is that time of the year again. The month long festival of Eid-ul-Fitr or Ramadan, is in progress. As in India and other parts of the world, the followers of Islam fast during the daylight hours and come evening they break their fast with mouth watering dishes in this holy month.

Every city has its certain eateries that specialize in certain types of cuisines. If you are an adventurous eater who doesn’t mind street food, it is your month. 😀 A wide range of mouth-watering dishes …vegetarian, non-vegetarian, and sweets tempt connoisseurs across the city to devour the festival’s food points.

The food street in Kampung Baru!

Fast or no fast, your trip to Mumbai during this holy month is incomplete if you do not visit Mohahmad Ali road. Similarly Delhi has its Chandni Chowk, Jama masjid area to satiate your taste buds. Take a trip to Bangalore for an all-night-long feasting at Moore Road in Fraser Town and surrounding Shivajinagar. Not only you can smell delicious aroma of roast chicken tikka, sheek kebabs and haleem but eat them as well. 😀
In Kuala Lumpur too there are several localities, where people put up temporary stalls to display their culinary skills. Kampung Baru is one village which even in normal days is known as the foodies’ delight. In the days of Ramadan, the enthusiasm is multifold and the place teems with preparations from every part Malaysia and some international too.

That’s how Ikan Bakar is made.

There are stalls that prepare Ikan Bakar, one of my favourites. First time I had it in Port Dickson. It is fish wrapped in a banana leaf then grilled on a charcoal fire. Then you can see stalls that make Apam Baliks, normally seen only in Penang.

Surely it is not only the Islamic community who come here for giving themselves a gastronomical treat!

If you want to travel and taste some delicacies with me, join me on my Facebook travel page. 🙂

    Ghazala,
    Malaysian food has so much of variety that just one post won’t do justice to it. 🙂

  3. Amazing that all Muslims observe the devotedly and yet attend to their routine responsibilities. In Pune it always gives me a good feeling to see the stalls serving delicacies for those who have observed the fast.

    Thanks!

  4. Dilip,

    Can you please tell me the locality in Pune where one can get these delicacies? I’ll update this post, of course with due credit to you. 🙂

  5. As you rightly said, It is great to visit muslim quarters during this month. As far as Malasia is concerned, the variety of delicacies offered is a foodies’ delight. Similar to Ikan Bakar, there are some pure veg and sweets prepared in Kerala.

  6. PNS,
    It’s high time that I visited Kerala. It’s such a rich state both in terms of natural beauty and food.
    I would definitely love to taste those goodies. 😀

  7. “If you are an adventurous eater who doesn’t mind street food, it is your month.” Agreed!If one has issues with street food,is hygiene conscious to the extreme,not much of their month!:-)
    As you said,one can go to Chandni Chowk or Jama Masjid in Delhi to treat their taste buds,however,I personally feel Chandni Chowk is so much better in terms of the variety,as well as the quality of food it offers.
