A walk through Ramadan food stalls in Frazer Town, Bengaluru

During the month of Ramadan, if there is one thing that I look forward too, it is food. I had Muslim neighbours while growing up and during every Ramadan, the smell of the delicious food wafting through the air was one of the best experience. The biryani that my neighbour made is one of the best that I’ve tasted. After moving to Bengaluru, the food stalls that are set up during Ramadan are what I look forward to. So one day, my friends and I decided to go.

We made a plan hoping that the weather forecast wasn’t going to be true, but the overcast skies told another story. It hadn’t started raining yet, so we decided that we would go for it anyway. No sooner did we reach the place and struggled to find a place to park, the skies poured. Typical Bengaluru weather. We waited patiently inside the car for the rain to reduce. And as the downpour reduced to a light drizzle, we set off with umbrellas in our hands making the weather perfect for some hot, delicious food.

Here are a few things we tried and loved. 5 must try dishes -in no particular order.

1. Pathar Gosht

This literally means Mutton cooked on stone. The meat is coated with the choicest spices and it cooked on a hot stone with charcoals beneath. I said the dishes are listed in no particular order, but yes this was my favourite. It was priced at Rs 250 per plate.

2. Anda Kheema Roti

As the name suggests this is roti (flatbread) stuffed with minced meat and it is fried with a coating of egg. Anda Keema Roti is filling. It is hard to stop taking another bite and trust me, if you eat one whole anda kheema roti, you are going to be so full. Price : Rs 100 per plate

3. Mutton Chops

The place that served these mutton chops was crowded and we had to wait for a while before we finally got to eat these pipping hot mutton chops. The wait was worth it for this mutton chops were a feast for our taste buds. The chicken chops were available too but we did not try them. Price : Rs 300

4. Seekh Kebab

We couldn’t resist getting a plate of the delicious Seekh Kebabs after watching them being cooked over the hot charcoal. They were adequately spiced and oh so juicy. Price : Rs 200

5. Haleem

A walk through the Ramadan food stalls is incomplete without trying some Haleem. This is a stew made of meat, lentils, wheat, dry fruits and lots of ghee. This was a delicious combination and yes, it is filling too. Price : Rs 250

These were some of the things we tried. There are a lot of stalls that have a lot of desserts too. The variety of desserts on display will make you want to try them all. But I was so full after all that meat that I couldn’t try them all. I did try the Shahi Tukda. We also got some delicious Pista Kulfi.

This was a wonderful experience. The whole atmosphere is amazing with so many people there. The prices are on the higher side – it is expensive. I think the vendors make the best use of the season. But if you are a meat lover, trust me that you should definitely visit this place.

  1. I have heard a lot about these Ramzan food walks and everything looks so delicious. Unfortunately, I am not really eating non-veg food hence I guess this is not for me currently.

    I usually go to Frazer town every year, but got bust this time. The food, the ambiance, the atmosphere, the smells, everything is a sight to behold here. I love Pathar Gosht! So tender and melts in the mouth. Haleem is not for me. Too damn rich! One spoon and I’m done.
