It’s Ramazan again! Ramzan, the holy month for the Muslims is all about prayers, fun and festive. And food. Who can forget food? This time of the year, you will get to eat some of the most delicious food dishes. Go to any Muslim’s place, you will find all kind of delicacies at Iftar. And if you want more, the best place to go is Mohammed Ali Road in Mumbai. It’s an area that NEVER shuts down during Ramzan. The best time is go during the night and explore all the possible eateries there and trust me you will not regret it.

But out of the many options available there, what is the best place and best dish to eat? Well, let me help you with that.

Mawa Shahi Tukda

It tastes just as yum as it looks. Full of mawa (Khoya, like many call it) and including bread and milk, this will definitely satiate your sweet tooth. Suleman Usman Mithaiwala makes the best ones.

If you are a chicken lover and more like a boneless chicken lover, this is something you just can’t miss.  Marinated in red spice paste and then barbequed, you will be wanting for more. You should go to Chinese and Grill for these.

Seekh Kabab

As you enter the lane to Minara Masjid, you will get this amazing smell of Seekh Kebabs. These juicy and delicious Kebabs, made of mutton and other spices are best eaten with a paratha. Again, Chinese and Grill is the place you should go.

Sandal looks like idli, it is also steamed like idli, but it’s yummier. Made with rice flour, coconut milk and hint of sugar it is best paired with Malai which is served with it. Kassam Bhai makes one of the best Sandals in that area.
