In Pics: Where to Go Ramzan Feasting in the Mumbai Suburbs

The month of Ramzan is all about fasting, and feasting of course! The mere mention of ‘Mohammed Ali Road’ (in south Mumbai) ignites an image of endless bingeing of kebabs, biryanis, meat rolls and what not.

If you take a food walk in Mumbai during Ramzan, you will be surprised to discover lanes and bylanes across the city replete with aromas of chargrilled kebabs and tandoori chicken, piping hot jalebis, and ghee laden-malpuas.

India Food Network went on a food coma on one such food walk in the suburbs. Here's what unfolded near Malcolm Baug in Jogeshwari and outside Bandra station reassuring people's love for food.

Seekh Kebab

Succulent pieces of meat marinated with spices and left on skewers to grill. The result is juicy kebabs that are served with mint and lime, and simply irresistible!

What happens when Basmati rice is flavoured with garam masalas and cooked with meat for hours? Biryani, of course!

When the sun goes down, hundreds of people gather to savour a plate of haleem. A Hyderabadi speciality, the dish is the result of slow cooked lentils blended with meat and spices for seven to eight hours.
