Snippets of the bustling street: Mosque Road during Ramazan

There are two kinds of people who will have the time of their lives on the Mosque Road, Frazer Town, Bangalore during the Ramazan season.

  1. The meat lovers. There is chicken, there is mutton, there is emu, there is rabbit, there is camel, there is a lot more. Name it, and you the meat lover will find it slow frying in the form of Kebabs, Samosas, Shawarma, Rolls, Paya and so on.
  2. The non meat lovers –  the ones who are there for the Suleimani Chai/Kulfi/all other kinds of street food with or without meat. Need I say more?

Also, there is a set of people belonging to the second kind – the street lovers. A glimpse of this place makes overwhelms them – putting them in a state of euphoric confusion (can we call it that?). Mosque Road is absolute bliss for these.

I was there last month. The reason this post comes about a month later is because I still don’t know how to put the experience to words. I definitely had the time of my life, and yes, like always, the third eye does not disagree.

Kinnathappam, made out of sweetened rice and coconut milk, served in mud bowls. A treat for the vegetarians!

And then there were people. Lots and lots of them. Seldom does food not have people surrounding it, I feel.
