Hot Spicy Khichda At Bandra Station Road

Hot Spicy Khichda At Bandra Station Road, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Bandra in the old days was butcher land , this side of the Bandra West Station , known as Compound and Shastri Nagar , it had the most famous abattoir which was shifted to Deonar Chembur end.

So even now there are lot of butchers here , the Bakarkasab Jamat is very famous doing great social work for members of their community.

There is a mutton beef chicken market at Bandra Bazar, and a few butchers have gone into the catering business , but the actual caterers doing competitive business are North Indian Muslim migrants from Uttar Pradesh.

This is a famous Muslim North Indian outlet in the Lucky Hotel Foodie lane , and this guy has a fixed clientele , his rates are affordable , and he caters mostly during Moharam when the Shias give tanduri roti with a single seekh kebab as Niyaz e Hussain during majlis .

He makes tanduri parathas too.. with dollops of ghee .

And the smaller size tanduri rotis..
