During the Muslim Holy Month, Bazar Ramadan are set up all over Malaysia, in every corner of the country. There are large ones with over a hundred stalls that attract even tourists to come and try traditional local dishes. There are also smaller bazaars with just one or two rows of stalls serving the local community living near the bazaar.

Today, I was at the Bazar Ramadan at Jalan Badik 21, Taman Puteri Wangsa, Ulu Tiram which is some 15km north of Johor Bahru.

Small and intimate bazaars can be a lot of fun too. Let's see what they have here.

The bazaar may be small, yet there were three, maybe four stalls serving ikan bakar.

This traditional dish consists of fresh fish laid on a banana leaf and grilled on a sizzling hot iron griddle. The fish is cooked under a thick blanket of fiery looking sambal chili.

Sometimes, the blanket is so thick you that might wonder what is underneath it.

Where is the fish? 😏

It's ikan pari or stingray - the most popular fish for ikan bakar. Stingray seems to be perfect for this dish as it's meat is juicy and tender, and it's flat shape allows the sambal chili to be spread on it like butter on a slice of bread. At least that's what it seems like to me lah 😊

No kambing golek (whole lamb on a rotating spit) here at Puteri Wangsa but the mutton smells just as good 😋

Every bazar Ramadan in Malaysia has at least one satay stall (it is safe to say, right? 😀 )

That juicy meat skewered with slender sticks and grilled over charcoal embers is a must have at Iftar (breaking of fast at sun set) gatherings.

The nasi campur stalls are always very popular because many people like to eat familiar home style dishes for breaking fast. They will buy chicken, fish, and vegetable dishes and eat them at home as side dishes with rice.

Mutarbak - freshly made fried beard with mutton, beef or chicken tucked inside it's folds.

There is always a queue at the BBQ chicken wings stall.

Can't really see what was in the pot but this was the nasi briyani stall. That's rendang chicken - chicken stewed in spices and coconut milk.

There was a mobile cendol stall here 😍

It's a popular sweet cold dessert of blended green pandan leaves and rice flour "worms" served in bowls of fresh creamy coconut milk with palm sugar and ice.

Nasi Kukus, the ever popular Kelantan dish. It's deep fried chicken marinated with spices and eaten with fluffy steamed white rice. Nasi kukus simply means "steamed rice".

Keropok lekor another signature from Kelantan state. It's ground fish meat combined with sago flour and made into rolls which are deep fried. The snack has a slight crisp outside. It is chewy and has a nice fish flavour. One of my favourite local snacks 😌

In Johor Bahru, you will usually always find katira juice (the green colour juice on the left) at bazar Ramadan. Available only during Ramadan and only in Johor.

May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family Ramadan Murbarak and selamat Iftar.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
