In Pictures: Koli Seafood Festival in Mumbai

Once a year, a bumpy open ground at the very end of Versova gaon is spruced up, carpeted and illuminated to welcome lovers of seafood and folk culture at the Koli Seafood Festival in Mumbai.

Koli fisherwomen set up stalls and whip up traditional homemade curries with prawns, bangda (mackerel), surmai, crab, lobster and of course, pomfret with bhakri for the crowds queuing up. All of this is absolutely fresh!

Take a peek:

While the food stalls were mostly occupied by the ladies, some fishermen were also at the counter frying and baking fish.
