Hey, guys! It's the fasting month here in Malaysia and our Muslim friends are observing the fast from sunrise to sunset. It's a time to learn and observe patience and perseverance for believers of the faith. It culminates in the Eid or Hari Raya celebrations after a month of fasting.
One mini-celebration we like to have here during the fasting month, is the Ramadan Bazaars. It's a giant pop-up market of traditional Malay, Arab, Indian and even Halal Chinese food. You'll find Ramadan bazaars all over Malaysia, but we're most passionate about it on the West Coast, especially in cities like Pulau Pinang/Penang and Kuala Lumpur.
Since it's Ramadan, I've made some little visits to the local Ramadan bazaars and I wanted to share with you some of the more interesting dishes I came across.
