Its been quite a while now since my food blog saw some new chow. I was on holiday in Mangalore for a week and was just too darn lazy to blog. But that does not mean that the blog misses out on any food special I indulged in. To begin with the first of many blog posts – It’s the Ramzan season and one of the greatest things about this time is the food available at Iftar – the break of fast.

For years now Sudhakar and I have awaited Ramzan in Bangalore just so we could dig into some heavenly Haleem, a Ramzan specialty of Dakhani Degh, right next to Sagar Apollo Hospital. This small restaurant religiously puts up the same nondescript banner each and every year announcing this specialty. Its available right from the afternoon in small containers (Rs 75) and big containers (Rs100).

Dakhani Degh Haleem

Haleem is mutton that is pounded, mixed with a load of dry fruits and spices and cooked on dum overnight in a lot of ghee and oil. You can forget about healthy eating with this indulgence. When you get to Dakhani Degh, the haleem counter is set up right outside and you will see them ladling the heavenly goodness out of a huge vessel that is constantly cooking on a wood fire. A large container can safely feed four adults with a healthy appetite. Choose naans or rotis to go with this and always squeeze a bit of lime over the haleem before you start. The caramelized onion slivers on top only add to the smoky flavor.

A perfect way to round of this meal is to have the Qubani ka Meetha, which is apricots stewed in sugar with dollop of fresh cream. Of course, once through with this meal you should not indulge in any work that is physically or mentally taxing – and by this I mean, the maximum you can do is drag yourself to bed and fall asleep.

Dakhani Degh Qubani Ka Meetha

This year round, we heard of another place that makes haleem and Qubani ka Meetha and decided to buy from both places at once to judge on how good it was. This place is a home-run affair. Right opposite Dakhani Degh is a bumpy road. Take it all the way to the dead end and look for a sign board that says Farah Foods. This is the same establishment that now provides haleem to bigwigs such a Spar. Anyways, we bought the same set of Haleem and Qubani ka meetha. Both of these were a bit cheaper than Dakhani Degh.

Haleem, Naan and Qubani Ka Meetha from Farah Foods

The Haleem tasted as good as the one from Dakhani Degh. But the Qubani ka meetha was a disappointment. It was a bit watery and did not really pack the punch of the heavy sweet that it is supposed to be. Since Anoushka has not yet developed a taste for haleem we got her a mutton biryani which is cooked the Hyderabadi way.

Dakhani Degh Mutton Biryani

All in all – our haleem experimentations left us satiated for this year. Can’t wait for next year though. And while on iftar food, Sudhakar went on this amazing ‘Iftar raid’ as he and his friends called it. Look out for his post on this blog soon.

Bangalore is more than just India’s “Silicon Valley.” It’s famous for its South Indian delicacies – from mouth-watering masala dosas (crispy pancakes), steaming idlis (rice and black lentil cakes), and coconut chutney. It also has a lot to offer to those eager to savor Ramadan specialties.

Bangalore-based food writer and critic Rajesh Mehar shared some tips with India Real Time on where to go and what to eat in the city during Ramadan.

Here are his recommendations:

Richies: Popularly called “Al Raham,” this restaurant is “heaven on earth” for non-vegetarians, said Mr. Mehar, who rates their mutton biryani (140 rupees, $3.1) as the best in town. The restaurant offers a selection of 31 dishes cooked in a tandoor oven, including unconventional kababs like the Kulfi Kabab, made with minced chicken, raisins, almonds and pistachios, cooked over a tandoor. Others include the Khatta Mittha Kabab, a mutton or chicken kebab cooked with tamarind and spices, and the Kalimirch Kabab, a mutton, lamb or chicken kebab prepared with black pepper, chili, Indian spices and traditional herbs. The kebabs cost 120 rupees each.

Dakhani Degh: This restaurant is best known for its haleem, a creamy meat dish that is typically eaten during Ramadan. Although Dakhani Degh is located in the heart of Jayanagar, an upscale Bangalore neighborhood, you can have a bowl of their haleem, which requires slow cooking mutton with herbs and wheat on a low flame for around eight hours, for just 80 rupees ($ 1.7). Dakhani Degh also introduced special Ramadan desserts including the “Qubani Ka Meetha,” an apricot dessert topped with pine kernels and fresh cream and the “Double Ka Meetha,” bread soaked in cream and sugar, garnished with cashew nuts and almonds and flavored with saffron and cardamom. Both cost 35 rupees ($ 0.7).

Albert Bakery: The bakery is famous for its “bheja” or goat brain puffs — a big Ramadan hit. Mr. Mehar said that using goat brain stuffing in their puffs, rather than regular minced meat, is the secret of Albert Bakery’s popularity. Foodie and Bangalore-based software engineer Achin Bhatia praised the joint for being innovative: “Apart from popular sweets, they change the menu to adapt to national festivals and local celebrations.”

Shivaji Nagar: Over the years, the neighborhood of Shivaji Nagar has emerged as a hub for small traders and artisans. During Ramadan, the area, particularly around Russel Market, comes to life with roadside stalls, vendors and street hawkers preparing delicacies like biryani, paya (a spicy lamb shank stew), sheekh phal kebabs (spicy minced chicken kebabs), mutton korma and chili beef. Many travel to this part of the city to try camel meat kebabs, a Ramadan special. A visit to the market would be incomplete without a cup of Sulaimani chai, a special ginger and lemon tea brewed during Ramadan, said Mr. Mehar.

Tilak Nagar: Like Shivaji Nagar, Tilak Nagar also lights up during the holy month of Ramadan. More than a dozen stalls are set up, overflowing with eateries serving dishes ranging from chicken kebabs to haleem to paya curry. The highlight of this market is the roasted ox tongue, flavored with a masala spice mix. The market is also famous for its firni, a rice pudding flavored with cardamom and saffron and garnished with cashew nuts and pistachios.

More on MM Road: MM Road is buzzing during Ramadan. The road is home to joints like the Charminar Hotel, popular for its Baida Roti, fine dough stuffed with mutton. Go to Zaikaa, a nearby restaurant, to try one of its seven exotic mutton dishes, including starters like Shahi Malai Sheekh and Peshawari Kebab, available for 125 rupees ($ 2.8), a charcoal-grilled kebab. Main courses include Saagwala Ghosht, lamb cooked in thick, creamy sauce prepared with mustard greens, and Roghan Ghosht, an aromatic Kashmiri lamb dish prepared with red ground pepper, priced at 120 rupees ($2.6) a plate.

Raving Ramzan specials
Shivaji Nagar, MM road on Mosque road, City Market, Rahamat Nagar and JC Nagar are a few hot spots, where people swarm after 8 pm the whole month of Ramzan, fervently crowding the shops to get their share of the delicacies. Here is a list of the most delicious and authentic Ramzan food we recommend.

Haleem is essentially a dish made of wheat bran and meat served with soup and garnished with coriander and fried onions. “Apart from wheat and meat there are a little more than one hundred herbs and spices that go into haleem,” says Syeed Irfanudin who was the first to start a haleem stall in Russell Market and has been in this business for 11 years now. He sells around 1000 to 1500 plates of haleem every day. There are two kinds of haleem – Hyderabadi Haleem and Calcutta Haleem. Hyderabadi Haleem is the authentic haleem, just like it is served in Saudi Arabia, where as Calcutta Haleem is the Indian version of it. A whole plate of this tasty haleem starts at Rs 25 a plate and is quite filling.

Harees is a dish that is similar to Haleem the only difference being, Harees is served without soup.

Kheema samosas are a big hit during this season and sell like hot cakes. Head to the Russel Market for some of the most amazing samosas. You can pick up these samosas for only three rupees. You get vegetarian samosas also. We must tell you, it’s quite a steal in this city.

Camel meat is a delicacy here and what better time than now to taste this meat. Camels are brought in from Rajasthan, especially for this season and can be savoured only in Shivaji Nagar. Try the camel meat sheek, chops and paya at the small food joints here.
Wallet factor: Rs 40 to Rs 50 per plate.

There is more
Badam Ka Hareera: This sweet drink made from milk, badam, khus-khus, coconut, ghee and garam masala, will help you digest all that you have sampled and also keep you warm in the windy Bangalore evenings.
Wallet factor: Rs 7 per glass.

Sweet Dahi is served in small matkas or earthen pots and are a must try. These are made of curd, khova, badam, milk and sugar and can be stored for two days. One matka costs all of Rs 20.

Lassi, the all time refresher in both sweet and salt versions is sold at Rs 10 per glass. These are great coolers for the body and help in digestion.

Qhubani ka Meetha is essentially a dessert made of apricots and badam and served with fresh cream. A world famous dessert, this one is not to be skipped.
Wallet factor: Rs 15 for a cup.

Gulkand and Maska is another sweet option, made of gulkand (rose petals) and butter, which is best had with bananas.

These are just a few of the many options you shouldn’t miss out on this season. Some of these dishes are available only till September 21, the day of the big feast, which is the Id-ul-fitar. Game for a two-in-one deal, where you get to stay out late and eat those yummy meats? We bet your mouth is watering already.

Ramadan’ for students in Bangalore

Fasting, during the holy month of Ramadan is considered as one of the pillars of Islam, and the same is preached to every Muslim, which is why, almost, 25% of the globe is fasting or observing “roza” during the season.

The month is spent by Muslims fasting during the daylight hours, from dawn to sunset. But what makes it special for some, is the wide delicious spread of food that is laid out among fasting Muslim families “It’s important that, after a day long fasting, we get to eat what we want the most. I prepare a lot of delicacies at home, especially for the kids. They are the ones to relish the food the most,” said Amira, a home maker.

There is certain food that are specials during Ramadan warm and easy to eat after a day of starving. Amira explains: “It’s very important for the adherents to eat a healthy food, and some thing they really relish.” She added, “The whole day is spent without a grain, which is why the preparations for “iftaar” are things items like “haleem”, made from pounded wheat or oats which is wholesome and nutritious”

But, hang on. Bangalore, has a huge population of students too, who have made the city their next home. Needless to say, there is also a huge section of them who are Muslims. So, what about them? Where do they get all these delicacies?

‘MyBangalore’ took a peek into the lives of city Muslims, and spoke mainly with students on how they have spent their Ramadan month away from home. When you are far from home, you are far from making your demands at the kitchen right? Sazmeer Khan, a student in the city admits, “I can’t be demanding here for I know I won’t get what I want. I stay alone.” He adds: “For Iftaar (breaking the fast), I go to the nearest mosque. They have a society in placed, which looks after our meals. However, I miss home food, especially during this season.”

For Shuaib Nabi, a student pursing his M.B.A. in one of the city colleges, things pretty much felt the same. “I miss the whole arrangements of Iftaar; the food, the people, and everything. Back home, it’s so much more fun,” said Shuaib. He adds, “A group of our friends contribute money to organize an Iftaar party. That’s how I get to eat what I want, and it’s so much better that way. It’s like a family being together. At the Iftaar party,we get a lot of fruits, sweets, dates samosas and prepare all that we want. We make sure that the cook prepares all our favorite dishes.”

But for his friend Fateh Mohammed, things looked different. “There are Iftaari centers. One can get all the food there, everything that you want,” said Fateh. “At these centers, you pay and get most of the foods that a lot of us crave to eat.”

Students, however, seem to take Sahri, the act of arising from sleep to have their pre-dawn meal and observe their morning (fajr) prayers, in preparation of the day’s fasting. Shuaib explains, “There is not a lot of things that I can do in the morning. Sahri cannot be delayed, because Subah Sadiq (day break) sets in. So I try to make do with the left over of the previous day, or eat something light. It’s the Iftaar that I look forward to, to enjoy all the nice delicacies.”

Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar where Muslims across the globe will refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, or indulging in any acts that are considered immoral or un-holy. Muslims are meant to fast as it teaches them to be patient, modest and spiritual while sacrificing their primal and worldy acts. Also Muslims are urged to pray and seek forgiveness for their sins. The significance of Ramadan lies in the fact that Muslims believe, and it is said in the Holy Quran, that the Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed on “Lai-La tul-Qadr”, or the night of power. This night is believed to fall on one of the last few days of Ramadan that are seen as the most important “rozas” or fasts.

Alibaba Café and Restaurant is a popular place for Muslims to go and break their fast, and they have a delectable spread of “haleem”, “biryani” “kababs”, and other delights that are traditionally served during Ramadan.
