Selamat Berpuasa! Bazaar Ramadhan @ Kelana Jaya


Bazaar Ramadhan is a month long bazaar open to the public during the fasting month of Ramadan (the ninth month of the Islamic calendar) prior to the festival of Hari Raya Aidilfitri. It actually unite the Muslims from all states in a period of fasting and and community bonds where everyone gather to pray and break the fast.

For us Chinese, we get to join in for the joy of fast breaking. I love to make a move to Bazaar Ramadhan for the bewildering array of stalls selling delicious food. Spurred by the recent review of Boolicious on Bazaar Ramadhan at Kelana Jaya, we made a stop over there last weekend, to take pictures and of course to savour the mouth watering delicacies.

Feast your eye on the pictures first! I’ll try to update the name of the various delicacies and a map to Bazaar Ramadhan at Kelana Jaya by tonight. Stay Tune!


Attracted by the red coloured chilli glaze and sesame seeds, we bought some Popiah Beseri (RM 1 for 2) where the chilli sauce is tooth ache-ing-ly sweet. A It was bunches of deceiving popiahs that lure us into buying it. I’ll try to get it from other stalls on my next visit here.


Popiah Kering (Deep Fried Popiah)


Kampungboy almost gone crazy over these Ikan Bakar, especially ikan pari bakar. Pari was selling at RM 6 and above while Ikan Kembong was selling at RM 3 and above. The makcik was very nice to give us some discount since we took a very nice shot of her pan frying the fishes.



Murtabak (RM 2 f0r 1). The thin dough is filled with minced meat, chicken or beef, garlic, egg and onion. It is then fried on a griddle until it turns golden brown.




Made of flour, egg and tumeric powder, Roti Jala (RM 2) is something that you can’t miss out. It is interesting to see the making of Roti Jala, the outcome is just like a piece of art work. Using a cup like mould, the man’s hands were moving in circular motion to form a thin lacy pattern in the frying pan.



The cute little mini Roti Boom is selling at only RM 0.50 for one. It is a great invention for people like me who want to try a bit of everything but not to stuff myself silly. A very sinful snack, oily roti coupled with margerin and a dollop of sugar, do not over indulge on it ya?


Roti Arab is originated from the Arab countries and Turkey. It is quite sweet and a little hard to bite on.


You can choose to have the grilled meat (chicken or beef) to served with pita bread or plain bread. (RM 2.50)


One is hard to miss the Ayam Golek stall. It was selling at RM 13 for one chicken and RM 7 for half chicken. There were rows and rows of chickens turning on the griller over charcoal fire.


Assorted Fried Balls (RM 1 for each skewer)


Lemang is a traditional Malay food where glutinour rice and coconut milk is cooked in a hollowed bamboo stick. It goes very well with curry gravy.



The man selling Sata (RM 3 for 6) originated from Kuala Terengganu, just like Kampungboy so they had a very good chat. It is made of ikan tenggiri, shallots and ginger wrapped in banana leaf, pierced on a skewer then barbecue over low fire. I tasted some shredded coconut in it too, giving it a slightly sweet and course texture. Unlike otak otak, the fish paste is bouncy instead of mousse like.


Skewered Chicken Wing


Pelbagai Lauk Pauk (assorted dishes) that goes well with nasi (plain rice), nasi impit (compressed rice) , pulut (glutinour rice) , lemang (glutinous rice and santan) or mee hoon (rice vermicelli).


Sambal Cili Grilled Kembong and Sambal Cili Grilled Cencaru reminds me of my mum, who can make really good sambal stuffed kembong and she always take the trouble to blend her own chili paste that has kick!


Another delicacies that will make Kampungboy goes crazy, sup tulang! Selling at only RM 5, the portion is huge and the soup is very peppery.




Sotong Bakar Pantai Morib

after 25

The lady was busy preparing some Popiah Basah on the spot. The ingredients is very much similar to Chinese Popiah where sengkuang (yam bean), bean sprouts and fried shallots are laid on top of the wet pastry sheet.


Nasi Goreng and Mee Goreng


Keropok Lekor and Keropok Keping


Pulut Udang (RM 1 for 3) is actually glutinous rice with chopped dried prawn wrapped in banana leaves. The filling is spicy and sweet at the same time.



The adik is so cute, he is busy slicing the apam balik (RM 2) into smaller pieces in a very familiar manner.


I was delighted to see a stall selling Kuih Pelita, my favourite kueh. It was selling at RM 1 for 3, the white coloured layer is flavoured with coconut milk, while the green layer is flavoured with pandan leaf.


Kuih Denderam is a mini doughnut shaped like snacks made of brown sugar and shredded coconut. It was so crispy and sweet, another favourite of mine.


Kuih Muih Ramadan




Kuih Bakar (thanks to full time mum n udjinn) Kuih Bingka or Seri Muka? Can anyone please enlighten me on this, it tastes like Kuih Bingka but the vendors told us that it was called Seri Muka. They even poke a joke on us, “makan banyak sikit dan you akan kelihatan muda, muka berseri seri tu!” (Eat more of this and you’ll look young, face glowing with radiance!)


Putu Piring Gula Melaka. Putu piring was steamed through in the flat mould, once the lid is open, the smell of rice flour, grated coconut and palm sugar is wafting in the air. It is truly a light dessert to end my meal.




The fresh
dates imported from Saudi Arabia are selling like hot cakes. The red one is Saudi Arabia Huluwa and while the yellow one is Barhi. (information from Malaysia Best)

    The green kuih… as far as I know, it is kuih bakar. Seri muka has pulut at the bottom (top half green kaya, bottom half white pulut). Kuih bingka is normally tapoica cake, which is either steamed or baked.
