Kebab and Curry Walk: Eating through Bohri Mohalla

The Dawood Bohra community can be traced in India as far back as the 12h century. It was only in the mid-16thcentury though, that the community established itself in India. Acute business acumen, trade, and ambition, bought this community to British Bombay and by the end of the 19th century, the Bohras were one of the richest people in the city.

A walk through Bohri Mohalla is not just a peek into this incredible community, but also a gastronomic dreamland, if you may! The dishes come from recipes passed down from one generation to another and have made these spaces legendary in their own right. Innovative, indigenous, and gobsmackingly delicious.

We’ll be conducting the tour in the traditional Bohri Khara and Meethaas format, alternating between sweet and savory dishes. There will be succulent kebabs with a secret, a 12 pot meat bhel, A meaty chat, One of Bombay’s oldest ice-cream shops, among other things.

Come join us as we go Foodtrippin’ to Bohri Mohalla and soak in some history, kebabs, and curries. All the spaces we go to will have open-air spaces to eat with proper social distancing. We start the tour at 5.15 pm to ensure less crowd in the areas we walk.
