The Dawood Bohra community can be traced in india as far back as the 13h century. It was only in the mid 16th century though, that the community established itself in India. Acute business acumen, trade and ambition, brought 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 peak 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 has made these spaces legendary in their own right. Innovative, indigenous and godsmackingly delicious.
