The best Ramzan food you will get in Mumbai

Jul 21, 2013, 03:51 IST | Sunday Mid DAY Team

Muslims across the world fast from dawn to dusk during the holy month of Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. But come darkness and it's time to feast on not just dates and fruits but kababs, chaaps, malpuas, jalebis and kheer. And much like Durga Puja or Christmas, when it comes to food, everyone is happy to be a part of the festivities. SUNDAY MiD DAY takes the help of experts and traverses the city to sniff out the best Ramzan food you will get

What: Kheeri Botii
Where: Nice Fast Food Centre, SV Road, Santacruz

Wow Factor: Soft, tender and juicy — when it comes to kheeri botis, no one makes them better. Nice serves a lovely Falooda too, but these yummy sheeks take the cake

What: Chhota Kabab
Where: Hindustan Restaurant, Md Ali Road

wow Factor: Great things come in small packages. If you want proof, taste these kababs on a night safari to SoBo

What: Naan Chaap
Where: La Raib Restaurant, Mohammad Ali Road

wow Factor: American burgers can take a hike. This hidden gem in busy Md Ali Road whips up the most succulent meats sandwiched between soft bread. Don’t go home before grabbing a few

What: Bara Handi Beef Curry
Where: Surti Barahandi, Bohri Mohalla

wow Factor: The Pichota and the Bara Handi here are legendary. Bohri Mohallah is a foodies paradise during the Ramzan months. Try this with plain naan. Divine!

What: Sheek Kabab
Where: Bismillah, Mohammad Ali Road

wow Factor: Add a dash of lime to these juicy kababs and you will be sold on them for life. We tried this (along with some chaap and roti) on a particularly crowded night, so we had to wait a bit for the kababs. But no wait is too long for this

What: Malpua
Where: Zam Zam, Md Ali Road

wow Factor: Thick, soft, sweet and that melting-in-your-mouth feeling — Zam Zam’s malpuas and phirnis are to die for. This sweet dish is available only during the month of Ramzan.
Run. Now!

What: Jalebis
Where: JJ Jalebiwala, near JJ Flyover, Nagpada

wow Factor: People come from as far as Borivli to taste the juicy jalebis that this jalebiwalla serves. If you have a sweet tooth, look no further

What: Falooda
Where: Yadgaar, Bandra Station Road, Bandra (W)

wow Factor: Thirsty after stuffing yourself with the kababs, and jalebis? Yadgaar’s Falooda is colourful and yummy
