Pickle making is undoubtedly an age old tradition in India.Commonly known as “Achar” and served as a condiment or an accompaniment while complementing every Indian meal,adding a sweet n spicy zest to the palette.
Ramadan Kareem to those who observe this holy month of fasting. My recent blog feed has some fabulous posts that were a visual delight as many fellow bloggers have been posting for Ramadan.Some focussing on various street eats,special hotel buffets and tents while others cooking up a storm in their kitchens.One such post on Facebook brought back recollections of a fantastic experience from last year. Mumbai has an eclectic and vibrant neighbourhood that comes alive around Ramadan every year. These by-lanes of Mohammad Ali Road,Bhendi bazaar and Bohri Mohalla are abuzz with food vendors and street stalls.This is perhaps one of Mumbai’s oldest and significantly iconic neighbourhood’s that reverberates fervent activity at sundown and can quite rightly be named the old Muslim quarter.Wandering down these lanes can turn into a delightful experience for the senses as one revels in the array of street food and small eateries that serve up some finger licking good food.
