Mahim Urs – Street Food Haven
The end of December is marked for the Urs in celebration of the death anniversary of Hazrat Shaikh Makhdoom Ali Mahimi of the Mahim Dargah, An event that sees the faithful throng from all over the city and beyond, is especially revered by the Mahim Police Force. Another example of the eclectic potpourri of cultures that Bombay is, and has always been. Amidst all this fanfare, the roads turn into a haven for street food. My mobile camera and I had a little rendezvous that I bring to you. Enjoy!
Stalls adorn the roadsides
Right at the end, the dargah is all lit up
Food stalls were buzzing with patrons
Every Masterchef does not get an elaborate kitchen
Sheekh Kebabs, a delicacy meant to be had from seasoned street vendors.
Naans in the making
Adept at his art for the connoisseurs of his craft!
This Halwa is not meant for the faint of heart!
More kebabs and rolls………
We call them Kadeo Bodeo……and you?
Yes, that would be a Giant Poori 😀
Sweet and Happy Endings!
