Minara Masjid

A sea of Muslim devotees and Mumbaikars throng the street outside the Mosque. During Ramzan, the street is filled with stalls and shops offering a variety of food every evening.

 

Of special mention is the Firni (rice pudding) and Malpoas (A sweet made from wheat flour mixed with spices, deep-fried and soaked in sugar syrup)

 

Ofcourse, there is the staple mouth watering assortment of kebabs, fried chicken and shawrmas :)

 

There is a very jovial and lively atmosphere around, with enthusiastic waiters eagerly inviting you to take a table at their restaurant.

 

This is the one time I wish I had a wide-angle lens, as I have missed out on the better part of the ornate Mosque to capture the street :( My next purchase anyway ;)
