MOSQUE ROAD: Bengaluru by Foot, a culture collective, in association with Anisa’s  Kitchen organized a Dastarkhan on July 5. This was a Ramzan Iftar party, for people from other communities to understand the true spirit of Ramzan and to learn more about the traditions of fasting.

This week’s specialty was Kutchi Memon (a Muslim community that is   originally from the Kutch region)  cuisine, which included: zafran dry fruit sharbat, mince lamb warki somosas, brain pakoda, shammi kabab, shikampur, phulkas, green masala mutton chops, paya (trotters), chicken biryani with potatoes, brinjal gravy, curd raita, mutton khichda and to top it all off, falooda.

The menu was as delicious as it sounds and it definitely did justice to Anisa’s 30 years of being in the culinary industry. Half of the dishes on the menu sound very obscure because you don’t find them being served along Mosque Road.

With Bengaluru by Foot, you experience the customs of the festive season and the history behind the dishes.  After all, Ramzan is a time of sharing not just food but nuggets of culture and family favourites from a rich culinary history.
