I adore everything under the category of Indian food. The sweets, the snacks, the banana leaf rice, the curry, the rotis, the chutney. Yum~ In this time of Deepavali festive mood, I just had to take a stroll along the length of Jalan Tun Sambanthan :D Brickfields is a bust of activities with the street lined up with stalls selling everything from muruku to sarees to cater for this festival.
It is so refreshing to see striking colours in the form of food, clothing, greeting cards and decorations adorn the area. Hip and upbeat Bollywood music fills the air. The crowd, bargaining and walking away with new items in their hands tells you “yup, Deepavali is here”.
This stall is the Jesal Sweet House, stationed in front of their Jassal Tandoori Restaurant. It is slightly further up from the Sentral Monorail, away from the pack of bazaar stalls. Their pistachio and almond khoya burfi are simply delicious. What can I say, I’m a sucker for anything made from milk :P
There are a few makeshift henna parlours which charge RM5/hand to get this beautiful innai temporarily tattoed on your hand. The innai are usually flower motives, which I think is really cool they can make the designs look so intricate.
This stall is selling vegetable fritters which taste really good! I didn’t manage to ask what they are since the seller was doing a brisk business. The fritters are crispy while spongy inside, flavoured with spices and dried chilli. They are located opposite the POS office at the junction of Jalan Berhala. This stall is permanent here, so you will find them around even after this is over.
Hehe this is kinda out of place but I just want to show his expression I managed to capture. The claypot rice stall across YMCA.
All races can experience and celebrate Diwali together :)
Festival of electric lights. The aunty looks happy swinging it around.
This is actually a photowalk with some photographer-kakis (learned a lot about street photography!), therefore lots of portrait pic. I tried to pick out as many food-related photos to post here :P
