10/10

Kheema Gojju
The kheema is coarse ground, one can taste the freshness of coriander and curry leaves. There’s potato and green peas too, the green chilli in this preparation is quite assertive on the palate.
Rs. 190 (usd 2.5)
8.5/10

Chicken Kendasampige
Sliced breast of chicken marinated and grilled, tasty but does not make as much of an impression as the traditional fare here.

Non Vegetarian FEAST At RANGANNA MILITARY HOTEL|Famous Mutton Pulao, Kheema Gojju, Mudde |Bangalore

#MilitaryHotel #RestaurantsInBangalore #GourmetOnTheRoad


Drop in at Ranganna Military Hotel for breakfast, lunch or dinner to chow down on rustic meaty dishes full of flavour.


Established way back in 1964, this eatery swears by its food and so do its patrons. Presently run by a husband-wife duo and their sons, the USP of the restaurant lies in the functioning of its kitchen.


In this episode of Gourmet On The Road, Food Lovers Editor, Kripal Amanna visits the 60-year-old establishment to explore its kitchen with third generation Co-owner, Sendil Kumar. He discovers that the prep here begins as early as 7am, and every dish is prepared using secret recipes and local ingredients!

He also relishes a meaty spread for lunch, tasting from a hearty mutton leg broth, to steaming hot mutton pulao, kheema gojju, ragi mudde and more!

GOURMET ON THE ROAD RATING
Bannur Mutton chops
Mutton has a decent amount of bite. Most of the fat from the meat has rendered into the gravy enhancing the meaty flavours of this dish.
Rs 150
9/10

Bangude fry
Love the masala coating on this deep fried mackerel! The crunch, spice from the batter and prominent fish flavours make this a tasty fish fry!
Rs 150
8/10

Mutton head
a strong, deep flavoured dish, definitely for a hardcore carnivore to savour! Not my cup of tea though.
Rs 125
7/10

Chicken leg masala
spicy leg of chicken cooked with the skin on. The gravy is robust and rich and the meat is cooked right down to the bone yet juicy!
Rs 80
9/10

Raagi mudde and saaru
Wholesome, filling mudde served with a spicy saaru or meat gravy.
Rs 36
7/10

Goat leg soup
A hearty broth that can make a sick man walk! Mellow in flavours, one can taste the intense flavours of the bones that’s extracted into the broth.
Rs 150
8/10

mutton pulao
An aromatic pulao, where the meat is cooked with the short grain jeeraga samba rice. The rice is intense in its meaty flavour and studded with flecks of coriander and chilli.
Rs 190
9/10

Mutton Kheema Gojju
Coarse mince, with flecks of fat, fresh peas and coriander. the kheema is coarsely ground, soaking up the masala. the peas pop in the mouth and the fat adds a burst of savouriness.
10/10
Rs 130

Kheema unde
Very different from the gojju, the meat here is more finely ground and comes together as a ball or unde. The springy texture gives this meatball a chewy bite. The gravy, is lighter, with flavours of coriander.
Rs 190
7/10

ADDRESS - Ranganna Military Hotel, New 61, 1st floor, opp to Indian oil petroleum, Krishna Rajendra Road, 7th Block, Jayanagar, Bangalore 560 070; tel +91 80 4302 7346

Making The Nellore-Style ANDHRA BIRYANI At Most Popular NANDHANA PALACE | Tasting 13 Iconic Dishes

#nandhanapalace #andhracuisine #bangalore

andhra cuisine, meal, andhra biryani, nellore biryani, nandhana palace, bangalore’s largest andhra restaurant chain, sholay kebab, drumstick soup, mutton bone soup, chilli chicken, chicken kshatriya, chicken amravati, nellore mutton biryani, mati kodi biryani, chicken biryani

In good times or bad, Bengaluru loves its biryani and the one biryani that is perhaps most favoured here is the Andhra biryani. A biryani that’s nuanced in its depth of flavour and finds its roots in the Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh. In this episode of Gourmet On The Road, I catch the making of this traditional biryani from start to finish at the newest outpost of Bengaluru’s largest chain of Andhra restaurants, Nandhana Palace. In doing so, I chat with second generation owner, Shweta Ravi, and learn of her family’s commitment to culinary traditions over three decades, and also savour the many creations of the kitchens here that are now synonymous with Andhra cuisine. Hope you enjoy this one. Stay safe and happy eating!


Drumstick Soup
Made of drumstick marrow and leaves, this is a soup that’s warming and rich in nutrients.
Rs. 95 (usd 1.3)
8/10

Mutton Bone Soup
Mutton bones simmered over hours into a spicy broth, served with a tender piece of meat that offers a juicy bite of this soup.
Rs. 120 (usd 1.6)
9/10

Carrot 65
There’s little in the flavour of the reddish-orange batter-fried discs tossed in garlic, curry leaves and spices that reveals it’s made of carrots! If you are a vegetarian looking to savour the flavour of the legendary chicken 65, this Nandhana Palace invention is perhaps the closest you can get.
Rs. 185 (usd 2.5)
8/10

Sholay Kebab
This invention of the kitchens at Nandhana Palace is now synonymous with fried chicken Andhra style. Marinated in a yoghurt and spice masala and deep-fried, the result is a kebab that’s moist to the core and seriously addictive.
Rs. 270 (usd 3.6)
9/10

Chilli Chicken
The chicken is coated in a sauce of naati (local) green chillies that packs a ferocious, palate-numbing punch. If you have a high tolerance for chilli heat, do pop a few of the whole chillies floating in the dish to derive the painful yet satisfying pleasure of indulging in the Andhra chilli chicken.
Rs. 240 (usd 3.2)
8/10

Chicken Kshatriya
This dish is an ode to the family’s Kshatriya lineage. Stained bright yellow with turmeric, the fresh flavours of the masala hold to the chicken leg, making for a flavourful bite. A touch of cashew nut also renders a rich note to the sauce alongside the pungency of garlic.
Rs. 270 (usd 3.6)
9/10

Amravati Chicken
Boneless morsels of chicken cooked in a semi-gravy rich in the savoury flavours of fried onions, curry leaves and hint of fennel.
Rs. 280 (usd 3.7)
8/10

Mutton Pepper Fry
The meat is cooked to pink tenderness and its flavour reigns supreme beyond the pepper-rich masala. The cooks at Nandhana Palace certainly know how to treat the meat right.
Rs. 290 (usd 3.9)
9/10

Bamboo Chicken
A tribal dish that finds its provenance in the Araku valley of Andhra Pradesh, it features chicken that’s marinated in green and red chillies, ginger, garlic and other fresh ingredients, and then poached in its juices in a sealed bamboo cross section over fire.
Rs. 299 (usd 4)
8/10

Nellore Mutton Biryani
Layers of flavour from the spices - cloves, cinnamon, marat moggu, bayleaf, etc., waft through your palate when you place a morsel of the basmati rice in your mouth. You can also taste the underlying sweet acidity of the pineapple, a unique ingredient of the Nellore biryani. The meat has a bit of a bite, and is flavourful.
Rs. 290 (usd 3.9)
10/10

Nati Kodi Biryani
Made with short-grained seeraga samba rice, the nati kodi biryani takes over the palate with its spicy, green chilli laden flavours laced with the freshness of coriander and mint, and the toasty savouriness of fried onions. The rice when tasted on its own has a salty edge which complements the feisty character of the country chicken.
Rs. 270 (usd 3.6)
8.5/10

Takeaway available at all Nandhana palace outlets. To order across Bengaluru, call +91 80 4613 1111

Authentic NORTH KARNATAKA Jolada Rotti Meals At BASAVESHWAR KHANAVALI | At Dharwad Hubli Since 1963

#vegetarian #northkarnatakacuisine #bangalore

original north karnataka restaurant from dharwad, north karnataka, jollada rotti meals jowar rotti, maddike kaalu, moth beans, badanekayi ennegayi, eggplant, hesarukaalu, sprouted mung beans, sprouts, donne menasinakai, gurelu, shenga, chutney, jhunka, shenga obbatu, hollige, malleswaram, bengaluru,

Kudlayya Karbasaiyya Ganachari and his wife, Susheela, opened a tiny student mess, Basaveshwara Khanavali, in their home in Dharwad in 1963. Soon, the delicious reputation of their home-cooked jolada rotti oota or meal spread far beyond the student community, compelling them to open an eatery in the town’s main market. 50 years on, this North Karnataka khanavali or eating house, has expanded to 12 locations, including two in Bengaluru, but the family’s personal touch remains with the founder’s sons involved in the cooking of the meals. In this episode of Gourmet On The Road, I catch up with the youngest son, Ravi Shivappa Ganachari, at their newest eatery in Malleswaram, and savour a satisfying jolada rotti oota. Hope you enjoy the watch, stay safe and happy eating!

Jollada Rotti Meal
This is a meal that is high in nutrition, taste and variety. The jolada rottis are light and fluffy, the sort that when smeared with some butter, marry well with everything on the leaf, especially the chutneys, kempu chutney, shenga chutney and guralu, with some yoghurt. The rotti wrapped with the jhunka, salad and the gravy of the eggplant preparation, is a riot of flavours and textures. The pulses, the moth bean and sprouted mung, are satisfying, the badanekayi enngayi and dhonne menasinkayi, the sort that will have you calling for second helpings. Certainly a meal that extols the vegetarian flavours of North Karnataka.
Rs 150 (usd 2) per meal
9/10

Shenga Hollige
Served with a generous drizzle of ghee, the hollige is sticky in its texture and carries the nutty crunch of the peanuts.
Rs 30 (usd 0.4)
7/10

Exploring 25 Years And 3 Generations Of RURAL Culinary Traditions At SVS MESS, Kolar

SVS MESS, Kolar | 25 Years And 3 Generations Of RURAL NON VEG Traditions! Biryani, Chops, Kheema Fry

#ruralfood #kolar #karnataka

popular rustic eatery in kolar for non vegetarian food served by a family, svs mess, mutton dishes, sheep, mutton biryani, chicken biryani, mutton chops, boti fry, fish kebab, paya soup, mutton fry, kheema, kolar food, non vegetarian food, biryani, non veg in kolar, kolar hotels, karnataka

This rustic eatery, located in Kolar, the milk and silk center of Karnataka, and within a two-hour driving distance from Bengaluru, is a labour of love spanning three generations of a family who come together every morning to serve up a meaty repast of traditional dishes that over the years has found much favour with the locals. I catch up with the family in their kitchen where the food is cooked as it was 25 years ago, on an ingeniously designed wood-fired stove. Hope you enjoy this episode, take care and stay safe.

Paya Soup
The paya is gentle and nourishing with the warming touch of pepper, an appetising start to the meal here.
Rs. 10 (usd 0.1) for a cup of soup; Rs. 180 (usd 2.5) with two trotters
8/10

Fish Kebab
A fish fry that’s best savoured hot, the flesh is moist with the skin crispened. The masala is flavourful and thankfully does not overpower the earthy flavours of the fish, I suspect this is a kaatla or a variant thereof, although locally it is referred to as silver pomfret.
Rs. 140 (usd 1.9)
7.5/10

Mutton Biryani
A biryani that is mellow in flavours, subtle nuances of the aromatic spices are all that one detects in the rice, a combination of seeraga samba and the bullet variety. The meat is tender and moist, effusive in its flavour with a slightly salty edge of sheep meat. The meat combined with the rice makes for a flavourful mouthful, combine with the sherva to add a bit of a punch, the biryani is definitely a must order here if you come on one of the days they make it.
Rs. 200 (usd 2.7)
9/10

Mutton Kheema Unde
Handground by the ladies of the house, one can discern the grainy texture of the coarse kheema on the bite and the warming notes of inger. The kheema unde is soft and flavourful, there is some egg that’s used to bring the roundels together with a bit of gram flour, but is barely discernible. Loaded with fresh pepper spice,
Rs. 160 (usd 2.2)
8.5/10

Boti Fry
The boti is cleaned well and cooked with tender hithikabele (peeled hyacinth beans) which helps in toning down some of the ‘funky’ flavours of the boti. If you love your boti, you will enjoy it.
Rs. 120 (usd 1.6)
7/10

Mutton Chops
A loaded chop, plenty of meat and some fat, that stands testament to the fact that SVS knows how to cook its meat. Absolutely delicious, the meat peels away from the bone, yet has a bit of a bite. There’s bits of fat floating in the gravy, that also adds to the rich, unctuous flavours of the curry. Savour this with some plain steamed rice.
Rs. 160 (usd 1.6)
9/10


Happy Eating!

PURNABRAMHA Maharashtrian Vegetarian Cuisine| A Woman’s Tribute To Authentic Flavours Of Her Land

#vegetarian #jayantikathale #bangalore

purnabramha, popular maharashtrian restaurant, jayanti kathale, lady entrepreneur, woman enterprise, maharashtrian vegetarian cuisine, bangalore, vada pav, sabudana vada, kothmir vadi, vada, maaswadi rasa, narayangaon, maharashtra, pune, bharleli vaangi, eggplant, varan bhaat, dal rice, modak, ganesh chaturthi, puran poli, shirval,

A 27-hour flight from Australia to Bengaluru sans any vegetarian food for her husband and child spurred Jayanti Kathale to give up her career as an IT professional and set up an enterprise fuelled by the mission of propagating vegetarian Maharashtrian cuisine across the globe. With a humble beginning, selling modaks online, Purnabramha has evolved into a full-fledged restaurant offering with multiple centres in India and overseas. I catch up with this firebrand entrepreneur at one of her restaurants in Bengaluru, watch the making of a unique maaswadi rassa, a dish from Narayangaon, before sitting down to a satisfying Maharashtrian meal that begins with an expected vada pav and sabudana vada but travels far beyond. Hope you enjoy this episode. Stay safe and happy eating!


Solkadi
An appetising start to the milk, sour kokum extract infused in spiced coconut milk.
Rs. 150 (usd 2)
8/10

Vada Pav
The vada pav here is served in the traditional Maharashtrian style, a lightly flavoured batata vada in a laadi pav with a generous rub of kanda-lehsun chutney, choora, fried batter pearls for crunch, and lavangi, salted and fried green chillies.
Rs. 35 (usd 0.5)
8.5/10

Sabudana Vada
A textbook sabudana vada, crisp and crunchy on the outside and moist and yielding inside. The spicing is minimal in keeping with its reputation as a ‘upavaschi faraal’ or fasting snack. The sweet and sour yoghurt dip is a perky accompaniment to the vada.
Rs. 154 (usd 2) for 6 pieces.
8/10

Kothmir Vadi
The sort of snack that you would find in a Maharashtrian home. Generous amounts of coriander (kothmir, in Marathi) combine with spices and chickpea flour in two versions, steamed and fried. I preferred the fried version.
Rs. 176 (usd 2.3)
7/10

Combo Main Course Platter
A great plate to taste the depth and variety of Maharashtrian cuisine in dishes that aren’t commonplace. The spicy rasa grips you by the throat, the soft and wholesome tandala chi bhakri (rice rotti) helps tone down the spicy fervour of the rasa. The maaswadi, a vegetarian’s imaginative take on the bone and marrow concept, is an interesting play of flavours and textures - smooth, spicy chickpea paste that’s stuffed with a mixture that comprises sesame seeds, coconut, peanuts, etc. if you like it spicy, combine the bhakri with the chilli thecha and onions. The bharleli vangi offers a flavourful bite, swathed in a nutty peanut based gravy,
Rs. 280 (usd 3.7)
9/10

Thup Varan Bhat Nimbu
A simple, soul-pleasing plate of mildly flavoured daal (varan) seasoned with toasted thup (ghee), served with rice. There’s some methkut, a five-lentil, spice and asafoetida concoction, on the plate for added punch.
Rs. 110 (usd 1.5)
8.5/10

Shirval
A vegan-friendly, low on sweetness dessert, made of rice flour that’s collected into a dough, poached, before being pressed into noodles that are then steamed. The steamed noodles, combined with coconut cream, a touch of jaggery and almond flakes, is the delicate sort that dissolves when placed in the mouth.
Rs. 350 (usd 4.7)
8/10

Modak
Lord Ganesha’s favourite sweet, Purnabramha’s modak is a must-order. Within the austere exterior of the modak lurks a caramelised, coconutty mixture, fortified with reduced milk, that will sing to your palate.
Rs. 150 (usd 2) for 4 pieces.
10/10

Puran Poli
Purnabramha has sold 750,000 of these, and for good reason. Jaggery-sweetened chickpea paste flavoured with a touch of nutmeg and rolled in a wheat dough, this is the sort of dessert that’s best enjoyed with plenty of thup (ghee)!
Rs. 90 (usd 1.2)

This Famous HOSKOTE BIRYANI Shop Sells 1,000 Kilos Mutton Biryani Every Sunday | ANAND DUM BIRYANI

#anandbiryani #hoskote #bangalore

popular biryani shop, anand dum biryani, hosakote, hoskote, bangalore, mutton biryani, kaal soup, chicken fry, anand biryani shop, biryani trail, inspiring stories

Anand was only 14 when he opened a tiny shop to sell idli and chitranna to support his family in his village, Hoskote, located about 40kms from Bengaluru. Customers requested him to sell biryani too on Sundays. What began as a tiny 2-kilo experiment 21 years ago has grown today to a massive kitchen that sells nearly a thousand kilos of mutton biryani on Sundays. And in doing so has placed Hoskote on the map for biryani lovers who don't seem to mind waking up at an unearthly hour just to get here to stand in a queue for an hour or two for a plate of the fabled Hoskote biryani that runs out by 9am and is sold only on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. I drive out to Hoskote at 4am to find out what makes this biryani such a craze. Stay safe and happy eating!

Mutton Biryani
The dominant flavours in this biryani are that of the fresh ingredients, the naati ginger, garlic, coriander,mint etc., followed by a veil of the aromatic spices. Every grain of rice is imbued with its flavours, and the meat is a combination of some soft, juicy pieces and some on the bone, that calls for a bit of effort to get to every bit of it, some fat included. The spicing is gentle and warm.
Rs. 230 (usd 3.1)
9/10

Kaal Soup
There’s plenty of coriander and mint in this kaal soup; one can taste the gelatin that’s rendered into the broth. What it lacked though was depth of flavour from the spices, the sort of nourishing jolt that you expect to register on your tastebuds.
Rs. 100 (usd 1.4)
7/10

Chicken Fry
A tasty homestyle chicken fry, order a portion of this to add additional meaty protein to your biryani.
Rs. 100 (usd 1.4)

Famous RAMANAGARA Biryani Ritual | TAJ BIRYANI PARADISE | Mysore Highway Mutton Biryani, Chicken

#biryani #mysorehighway #ramnagar

popular biryani stop on bangalore mysore highway, ramanagara, bengaluru mysuru highway, mutton biryani, biryani trail, mutton biryani, chicken biryani, chicken grill, chicken al faham

For travellers on the Bengaluru Mysuru highway craving a quick biryani fix, Taj Biryani Paradise has been a popular pitstop for years. Located bang on the highway, it’s the sort of place that’s hard to miss with a number of vehicles parked out front alluding to its crowd-pleasing appeal. Curious to taste this much-sought after biryani, we stopped by impromptu on a recent expedition to the area. Watch the episode to know what we thought of the offerings here. Stay safe and happy eating!

Chicken Al Faham
The meat, especially the leg piece, is moist and juicy, the masala has permeated all the way into the meat. The chaat masala sprinkled over the bird is a tad overpowering, all in all a tasty preparation, provided it’s served hot.
Rs. 220 (usd 3) for half a chicken
7/10

Mutton Biryani
The biryani is stained saffron yellow, the rice fluffy, moist and flavourful and seemingly mellow when it greets your palate first with the aromas of the seasoning spices like cardamom. Golden fried onions, brishta, lend to the flavour of the biryani, however a few bites in one can detect the mild burn of red chilli spice on the lips. But that’s quickly assuaged when the rice is tasted with the juicy, fat-lined plump pieces of meat in the biryani. The meat is intense in its ‘meaty’ flavour, slides off the bone, and definitely the sort that leaves an impression on the palate.
Rs. 270 (usd 3.7)

Happy Eating!

Tasting East Bengaluru’s Insanely Popular MALLIKA WOOD-FIRED BIRYANI | Mutton Curry, Chicken Fry

#mallikabiriyani #muttonbiryani #bangalore

Bengaluru’s Newest Biryani Craze, Mallika Biriyani, sells over 500 kilos of meat biryanis every weekend! Mutton biryani, chicken biryani, homestyle mutton curry, chicken fry, liver fry, boti fry, raagi mudde, kothanur, east bangalore

Mallika Biriyani is the fascinating story of a computer engineer who began a biryani shop six years ago with an investment of Rs. 10,000 after a string of failed ventures. In the early days, he would procure a kilo of mutton each day, today the shop has evolved to a bustling biryani destination which procures over 500 kilos of meat on weekends to cater to the thronging crowds here. I make a 20-km trek through town to the far flung suburb of Kothanur in East Bengaluru to catch up with Venkatesh for a close look at his enterprise, and also taste the five or six dishes on offer here including his unique wood-fired biryani creation which comes across as a delicious confluence of various styles. Hope you enjoy this episode. Stay safe and happy eating!

Mutton Curry
A pleasing homestyle mutton preparation that’s cooked slowly on a wood fire, the fat in the meat renders into the gravy giving the curry a lip-smacking unctuous richness. The meat slides off the bone, the curry is a great combination with the rice and raagi mudde. If you need one reason to make the trip to Mallika, this would be it!
Rs. 180 (usd 2.4)
10/10

Chicken Fry
Made in a flavour coriander-greenchilli-coriander masala, this is a zesty chicken dish. The meat is cooked perfectly down to the bone.
Rs. 80 (usd 1.1)
8/10

Boti Fry
The boti is soft, cooked well and spiked with loads of pepper. Its only fault however, its sandy griminess on the bite, which can be difficult to get past when you are eating offal.
Rs. 100 (usd 1.3)
6/10

Liver Fry
A preparation, identical to the pepper-laced boti fry, it’s a pity the flavourful warmth of the masala could not penetrate the ‘tough-on-the-bite liver.
Rs. 100 (usd 1.3)
7/10

Chicken Biryani
The biryanis are served in large portions, there’s plenty of rice, and 5 or 6 pieces of chicken, which makes it a great biryani to share. On the nose, there’s the smokey character from the wood-fire, you can taste the depth of flavour in the rice from the spices. The meat is moist, though mellow in its flavours and benefits from being eaten with the flavourful rice, that is a mixture of two varietals, the ‘starchy’ short-grained seeraga samba and the ‘low on starch’ medium-sized-grain, bullet variety.
Rs. 130 (usd 1.7)
8.5/10

Mutton Biryani
Seven or eight pieces of meat in a mutton biryani at Rs. 230 makes it great in terms of value, and perhaps also lends to its mass appeal. The spicing and masala is identical to the chicken version, but the character of the mutton, with a bit of fat, imbues the biryani with a mellow, warming flavour note that’s more rounded on the palate. The meat is juicy, and has a bit of a bite. If you like your flavours a bit punchy, taste it with the sherva, the gravy of the mutton curry.
Rs. 230 (usd 3.1)

Bobby Da Dhaba goes back over 35 years ago when a family from Gurdaspur were invited by the Gurdwara in Bengaluru to set up a tiny eatery next to it to serve “ghar ka Punjabi khaana” to devotees for whatever price they could afford to pay. The eatery has moved away from the gurdwara since, but the tradition of the family’s service to its customers remains, and the food continues to be rustic and wholesome, the sort you will find in a Punjabi home, fortified with loads of makhan, butter! I drove 20 kms to the far flung suburb of Nagasandra to meet Bobby, his grandmother named the dhaba after him, and in addition to savouring a big, fat meal of parathas, chole, paneer bhurji, dal makhani, palak paneer and more, also managed to down a litre of lassi!

Rs. 80/ 130 (usd 1.1/1.7) for ½ / full portion

Bengaluru's Favourite KHAALI DOSA At 50-Year HOTEL DWARKA | The Dosa That Changed An Eatery’s Name

#khaalidose #hoteldwarka #bangalore

south bangalore’s popular hotel dwarka, popular breakfast, vegetarian, khali dosa, tomato dosa, dose, carrot halwa, basavangudi, bengaluru

For nearly half a century Hotel Dwarka has ruled the South Bengaluru palate, when it comes to the Khaali Dose, that though not as popular as the ubiquitous masala dose, is much revered by dosa aficionados. Intrigued, I visit this eatery to taste their khaali dose, and also discover that though its name may mean ‘empty’ in Kannada, there’s much that goes into its making that has earned for Dwarka the moniker, Khaali Dose Hotel. Hope you enjoy this episode. Take care and stay safe.

Khaali Dosa
The khaali dose, served in a pair, is soft and spongy, topped with mini-dollops of butter. When eaten piping hot with a generous smear of the butter, it’s the sort that when placed in the mouth dissolves little effort. The chutney served alongside is the right consistency to impregnate the porous dose with its spicy fervour. The potato palya is flavourful, but the main act here is the dose, butter and chutney.
Rs 50 (usd 0.7)
9/10

Tomato Dosa
In stark contrast to the austere khaali dose, the tomato dose is enriched with tomato, onions, coriander, ginger, lending it a flavourful opulence on the palate. Though it is served with a tasty vegetable saagu and chutney, it is flavourful enough to be savoured on its own.
Rs 44 (usd 0.6)
8/10

Carrot Halwa
The carrot halwa is a ‘rich’, sweet, and popular end to a meal here. I personally found it a tad too sweet with the tutti frutti.
Rs 40 (usd 0.5)

Rs 12 (usd 0.2)

Delicious VILLAGE Tradition, CHIBLU IDLIS Steamed In Bamboo Over Wood Fire | BABU HOTEL Halaguru

#villagefood #idlichutney #vegetarian

ancient village tradition idli, halaguru, 80 kms from bangalore, bengaluru, idli chutney, butter, bene dose, dosa, tuppa dose, ghee dosa, red chilli chutney, kempu chutney, babu hotel, halaguru, bangalore kanakapura road, kanakapura road, bengaluru, mandya district

The chiblu idli dates back to an era when modern kitchen conveniences of utensils weren’t easily available in villages, and so people would fashion cooking vessels out of resources handy. In the absence of present day idli steamers, village folk would steam idlis in baskets, known as ‘chiblus’ in kannada, made of bamboo, over a wood fire. And thus, these soft, aromatic chiblu idlis came into being. The painstaking effort required to steam idlis using this old-fashioned approach has caused this ancient practice to all but disappear. We travel 80 kilometres to Halaguru to savour this delicious tradition at Babu Hotel, a tiny village eatery that has been serving up the chiblu idli for over half a century now. Hope you enjoy this episode, take care and stay safe.

Chiblu Idli
The chiblu idli is aromatic and steaming hot, served with a dollop of butter and alongside palya and red chilli chutney. The idli is soft, porous and carries a tart edge from the fermentation, that the butter helps balance against. The kempu chutney has a good balance of spice, and the crunch of the coconut complements the grainy bite of the hurigadale (roasted gram). The palya is savoury with the flavour of the onions.
Rs. 10 (usd 0.1) per idli; Rs. 5 for butter
9/10

Tuppa Dose/ Bene Dose/ Masala Dose
The dose is crisp to the touch and fried to an appealing golden brown. Makes for a simple but satisfying tiffin with the palya and chutney. The masala dose is similar but stuffed with palya and larger in size, with twice the amount of butter.
Rs. 10/ 25 (usd 0.1/ 0.3) for bene/ masala dose
8/10

Chitranna
A pleasing lemon rice preparation should you wish to round off your breakfast at Babu Hotel.
Rs. 25 (usd 0.3)

SN REFRESHMENTS | The AMAZING IDLI & VADA At This Not-So-Famous Eatery Could Easily Rival THE BEST!

#idlichutney #vadasambar #bangalore

popular neighbourhood eatery, south indian snacks, vegetarian, tiffin room, j p nagar, idli, vade, vada, chutney, sambar, masala dose, dosa, chow chow baath, khaara baath, kesari baath, local eatery, breakfast

Every city has its favourite dishes, and iconic eateries that are famous for dishing these out. Bengaluru too has its tiffin rooms and thindi houses that are destinations unto themselves and occupy pride of place in every must-eat-at list. However, unknown to many there are equally worthy eateries that have been serving neighbourhoods quietly for decades. They don’t get celebrated beyond the communities they serve and are quite content with no accolades coming their way. In this episode, I visit one such establishment, SN Refreshments, which has been a cornerstone of JP Nagar, South Bengaluru for its limited but much sought after refreshment fare for 30 years. Hope you enjoy this episode, take care and stay safe.

Happy Eating,
Kripal Amanna

Idli
The idli is soft, porous and grainy in its texture thanks to the proportion of idli rice and urad dal in the batter, and some rice rava. When dunked into the chutney, the idli readily absorbs much of it, almost falling apart in the process. The chutney is unique, the spicy note of green chilli is accentuated by some jaggery, before submitting to the fresh crunch of the coconut, the bite of the roasted gram and the flavours of the mustard seed-curry leaf oggarane (seasoning). A tasty sambar served alongside is almost glossed over not for any fault of its doing, but because the idli-chutney combination are superstars on their own. When here, enjoy the idli, ladled over with plenty of chutney.
Rs. 15 per idli
9/10
10/10 (for the chutney)

Vade
The texture of the vade is textbook, crisp to the touch with a lacey crunch on the exterior, yielding and porous on the inside speckled with some green chilli, coriander and curry leaves. fried onions and minimal spicing. Crunchy on its own from the first bite to the last, the vade finds its soulmate in the chutney, its airy texture submitting to the embrace of the condiment. And if you like a vada dip, the wholesome lentil sambar is happy to acquiesce with its sweet acidity of tomatoes and a whiff of asafoetida.
Rs. 20 per vade
9.5/10

Masala Dosa
The masala dose is roasted to a golden brown with brownish striations. On the palate, it is crisp with a hint of tartness, and pleasing in its flavours minus the decadence of ghee and butter. The potato palya is creamy with the rich, savoury punch of onions. The chutney, though served in a ‘ghatti’ (solid consistency), is just as impactful as its runny avatar served with the idli and vade.
Rs. 45/-
8/10

Chow Chow Baath
The khaara baath and kesari baath are cooked to a texture that is near ‘runny’. The veggies in the khaara baath change each day, this time around, it was the capsicum and one could taste its vegetal notes and the fried onions, alongside the toasty notes of the curry leaves and the sour twang of a drizzle of lemon. The kesari baath is pleasing and the sort that passes muster with the taste buds, making for a sweet end to a thindi experience at SN refreshments.

This Humble FAMILY Eatery Is Serving Honestly-Priced, Delicious COASTAL MANGALORE Food | FISH N DISH

#mangaloreanfood #seafood #bangalore

family run mangalorean coastal restaurant, neighbourhood restaurant, jp nagar, south bengaluru, fish n dish, fresh seafood, fish fry, fish curry, prawn fry, prawn curry, prawn sukka, ghee roast, kane, lady fish rawa fry, mackerel tawa fry, silver fish curry, curry, spicy mangalorean curry, fish meal, fish thaali

Harish Shetty, a native of Puttur, and his wife, Prema, uprooted themselves from their life in Mangalore five years to move to Bengaluru with their only son, Shaman, for his higher education. To earn a livelihood, they set up a small eatery in a corner of the city, with absolutely no experience but compelled by necessity and their love for cooking the food of their native land. Despite all odds, their tiny shop, Fish N Dish, prospered modestly over the years. The current situation brought all that to nought as they lost their meagre staff, most of their business, and were forced to fend for themselves to stay afloat. Alerted by our viewers of their plight, I paid an impromptu visit to find the couple cooking in the kitchen, serving customers and also cleaning up after them, assisted by their son. The delicious homestyle Mangalorean food that I tasted fuelled by Harish and Prema Shetty’s motivation to provide for their son a better life inspired this episode. Hope you enjoy this one, please support them and neighbourhood eateries like these if you can.

Lady Fish Rawa Fry
A delicate crust conceals the lady fish, smeared with a gentle masala that’s seasoned to perfection. The fish is fresh and flakey, the perfect size to peel away at its flesh, definitely a fry to order when here
Rs. 200 (usd 2.7) for one fish
9/10

Prawn Sukka
The coconut is the perfect sponge to soak up the flavours of the masala and also the slight sweetness of the prawns. The coconut masala, toasted curry leaves, ginger garlic and green chilli combine supremely with the prawns that have been cooked to just the right texture.
Rs. 300 (usd 4.1)
9/10

Squid Ghee Roast
The ghee roast masala is warming and ‘kadak’ in its punch and laced with the generous ‘butteriness’ of ghee. Would order the ghee roast here again, but perhaps with fish or chicken.
Rs. 220 (usd 3)
8/10

Mackerel Fry (Green Masala)
You can taste the fresh herbaceousness of coriander combined with the zing of mint and the spicy heat of green chillies. It’s a masala that’s robust enough to take on the strong flavours of the mackerel.
Rs. 130 (usd 1.8) per fish
8/10

Mackerel Tava Fry (Red Masala)
A deep-coloured masala that greets you with its spicy punch and has seeped into the core of the fish.
Rs. 130 (usd 1.8) per fish
8.5/10

Fish Thaali
A complete meal that includes a mackerel curry, mackerel fry, some vegetable, pickle, rice and neer dosa, guaranteed to satisfy, taste-wise and also fill you up.
Rs. 150 (usd 2)
9/10

Silverfish Curry
A gentle curry with the creaminess of coconut milk and mild flavours of the fish, the fish is the sort that one can devour completely, bone and all. A traditional silver fish curry would also have a bit of tartness that I missed in this preparation.
Rs. 150 (usd 2)
7.5/10

Mackerel Pullimunchi
The curry is nice and thick, however to a Mangalorean, it may seem a trifle compromised on the chilli and tamarind punch that one would expect to find in a traditional Puli (sour) Munchi (chilli).
Rs. 150 (usd 2)
8/10

Homestyle COASTAL FARE At THE LIGHTHOUSE RESTAURANT | A Homemaker’s Expression Of Food & Memories

#mangaloreancuisine #kundapurcuisine #bangalore

popular coastal restaurant, mangalore, mangalorean, coastal karnataka, kundapur, prawn ghee roast, prawn curry, fish curry, bangude pulli munchi, mackerel, chicken curry, kori rotti, squid koliwada, drumstick koliwada, neer dosa, ragi mani, seafood

Married into a family of traditional restaurateurs, Prathiksha Nayak sought to create a dining experience that embodied her expression and memories of food growing up. The result is The LightHouse Restaurant, an airy space that is quite un-restaurant-like and more reminiscent of a South Canara home. Here, she serves coastal fare gleaned from family recipes and from her cooks who have worked in kitchens at legendary establishments along the West Coast. Keeping in mind her neighbourhood clientele, there’s a smattering of Chinese and North Indian on the menu too, but it is the dishes from the Kundapur-Mangalore belt that are much in favour here, as I discovered during a recent lunch here. Hope you enjoy this episode, take care and stay safe.

Solkadi
Rs. 80 (usd 1.1)
8/10

Drum Stick Koliwada
The robust koliwada masala finds its origins in the fishing community of Maharashtra, and although its combination with the drumstick comes as a bit of a surprise, its flavours seem to find a happy partner in this fibrous vegetable. I only wished the drum stick segments were longer, allowing one to chew on the fry better.
Rs. 190 (usd 2.6)
8/10

Squid Koliwada
The squid holds on to the koliwada masala in a tight embrace, one can taste its spicy notes in every crisp bite. Definitely, a must-order here.
Rs. 300 (usd 4.1)
9/10

Prawn Ghee Roast
The ghee roast masala is modified here to incorporate coconut and some cashew, so the chilli punch is toned down a wee bit, but that doesnt get in the way of an enjoyable ghee roast. One that sits lighter on the stomach as opposed to a traditional ghee roast preparation. The prawns are fresh and cooked right; this is the sort of dish that is begging to be mopped up with a neer dosa.
Rs. 450 (usd 6.1)
9/10

Prawn Hinga Udha
A gentle poached prawn curry, its flavours laced with the edge of hinga (asafoetida) and a lashing of coconut oil. Makes for a comforting combination with the boiled rice, the sort of preparation that you would taste in a Konkani home.
Rs. 450 (usd 6.1)
8.5/10

Kori Rotti
The chicken curry is robust in its flavours with a savoury onion punch, you can taste the coconut, the coriander, cumin and the slightly bitter edge of the mustard seeds in the seasoning. A delicious combination when ladled over the dry roti.
Rs. 320 (usd 4.4)
8.5/10

Bangude Pullimunchi
You can taste the sharp tartness of the tamarind (pulli) and the spicy punch of the munchi (chilli) in the gravy. The bangude (mackerel) is fresh, the masala though falls a bit short in steeping into the fish. An enjoyable curry nonetheless, with the appam.
Rs. 250 (usd 3.4)
8/10

Raagi Manni
The raagi manni makes for a soothing and light end to a meal here.
Rs. 60 (usd 0.8)
8/10

ADDRESS - The Lighthouse Restaurant, No. 62, 80 feet road, Near MS Ramaiah Hospital, opposite to apple store Devasandra, Village, RMV 2nd Stage, Ashwath Nagar, R.M.V. 2nd Stage, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560094; tel: +91 70262 36661

Tasty, Traditional Fare Served By VILLAGE HOUSEWIVES | THOTADA MANE | FARM DINING At Srirangapatna

#vegetarian #traditional #villagefood

a unique farm garden dining experience in srirangapatna, close to mysore, mysuru, village tradition thotada mane, guru dutt bharadwaj, mint lime, akki rotti, spinach rotti, raagi rotti, millets, vegetarian meal, thaali, sambar, rasam, bangalore mysore highway, bengaluru mysuru highway, mandya district

Guru Dutt Bharadwaj quit his IT job in Bengaluru five years ago to move into the tiny village of Darasaguppe in Srirangapatna to look after his aging parents. With his parent’s traditional home as backdrop, his fondness for cooking led to the creation of Thotada Mane, rustic vegetarian dining amidst a verdant garden setting, that seeks to offer not just mere sustenance but also a refreshing glimpse into an alternate way of life. In doing so, he employed an all-women team of housewives from the neighbouring villages, working alongside them in the kitchen to serve up traditional family recipes, some tweaked with playful twists to ensure there is something for everyone who arrives here. I drive the 130 kilometres from Bengaluru to savour this unique experience that literally comes across as a breath of fresh air in the current circumstances. Hope you enjoy this episode, take care and stay safe.

Mint Lime
Rs. 50 (usd 0.7)
8/10

Special Bhajji
A tasty bhajji platter, the crunch of tomatoes, onions and coriander add an element of ‘freshness’ to a deep-fried indulgent snack. Order for one of these as soon as you arrive at Thotada Mane.
Rs. 90 (usd 1.2)
8/10

Rotti Platter
A wholesome plate of three rotties, rice, spinach and raagi, topped with a generous dollop of butter and served with a niger seed chutney, uchilu pudi and curd combo, and a knock-your-socks-off spicy village condiment of green chillies, mensu. The rotties are ‘kadak’, crisp around the edges, and loaded with flavour. The akki rotti, infused with onions, dill, green chillies, cumin and more, was my favourite. The spinach rotti is a rice rotti infused with the ‘dulling’ green notes of spinach, the raagi rotti on the other hand is quite earthy in its flavour. The uchila pudi, with its fibrous nuttiness, tart fervour of tamarind and slight sweetness of jaggery makes for a great combination with the rotties, especially when combined with the yoghurt. And for those with a festish for spicy heat, the mensu will be most appealing!
Rs. 80 (usd 1.1)
Akki Rotti 9/10; Spinach Rotti 8/10; Raagi Rotti 8/10

Meals
The sort of traditional meal you would taste perhaps if you were invited to a home in Srirangapatna. A sumptuous thaali weighed down by a dry palya for the day, saagu, sambhar, rasam, puri, homemade yoghurt and rice. You also have the option of opting for chapattis or parottas. The vegetables are fresh and crunchy, sourced from the nearby villages, the preparations tasty and comforting in their flavours. The Maddur vade makes for a nice, crisp touch, and the kai obbattu, served for dessert, helps round up this indulgent meal. The sort of satisfying meal that will lull you into a quick catnap in the lush green setting of Thotada Mane before you set out on the road again.
Rs. 130 (usd 1.8)

GALLI KITCHEN By SHINE SHETTY | Inspiring Story Of How A Streetside FOOD TRUCK Saved A Kannada Actor

#shineshetty #actor #foodtruck

popular food truck run by kannada actor shine shetty, big boss kannada winner, inspirational story, vegetarian, mangalorean food, sabakki idli, mysore masala dosa, dose, bela kai neer dose, galli kitchen, banashankari, south bengaluru, bangalore

During a particularly difficult period in his career, popular Kannada actor, Shine Shetty took up cooking to stretch his meagre resources and feed himself. Cooking in those difficult times led him to mull the idea of setting up a food truck venture for his livelihood. Rustling up a loan from well wishers, he found a second auto that he could afford. Thus began Galli Kitchen, a streetside food enterprise, a far cry from the world of glitz and glamour that Shetty was once used to. Two years on though, Galli Kitchen seems to have changed the fortunes of its owner, and has now upgraded to a full-sized food truck. I catch up with this affable actor over an inspiring chat, and also taste some of the popular fare here.

Sabakki Idli
An idli that isn't too thick to hold, but weighty nonetheless owing to the sabudana or tapioca pearls. The aroma of the dill takes over the palate when placed in the mouth, the texture is a bit gummy. The idli is the sort that comes alive when combined with the chutneys, especially the spicy and sour notes of the kempu chutney.
Rs. 40 (usd 0.6)
8.5/10
9/10 for the kempu chutney

Mysore Masala Dose
Shine Shetty’s ode to the 99-variety style of dose that would sustain him during his acting school days in Mumbai. The dose is crisp when it leaves the tava, but weighed down to a soft texture by the loaded stuffing of masala, fresh onions and tomatoes, when gathered into a tight roll. The spicy-sweet flavour of the podi is discernible above the fresh crunch of the veggies. Not a dose for the purist, but a tasty and filling one nonetheless.
Rs. 50 (usd 0.7)
8/10

Neer Dosa Bela Kai
This is how Mangaloreans love to eat their neer dose for breakfast with a lip smacking accompaniment of fresh coconut, jaggery and ghee combined together with a touch of cardamom. Simple yet delicious, and a must order to finish your thindi experience on a sweet note at Galli Kitchen.
Rs. 40 (0.6)
9/10

Authentic KODAVA Fare At THE COORG FOOD COMPANY | A Kodava Couple Share Their Culinary Heritage

#kodavacuisine #coorgfood #bangalore

authentic kodava, coorg cuisine, bengaluru, chicken curry, pandi curry, kadambuttu, akki otti, pork curry, koli bhartad, chicken fry, kaima unde, meatball fry, onake erachi, spicy smoked pork, veg curry, tender coconut pudding

The Coorg Food Company is Pavith Ponnappa and Pavitha Poonacha’s culinary ode to their Kodava heritage and ancestry, a labour of love with recipes gleaned from family and ingredients sourced from their estates in Coorg. The result, not surprisingly, are dishes brimming with authenticity and flavour. I catch up with them at their cosy restaurant and also savour many of the dishes that offer a stellar showcase of Kodagu’s rich culinary traditions. Hope you enjoy this episode, take care and stay safe.

Kripal Amanna,

Rs. 190 (usd 2.6) for a full portion, roughly twice my tasting portion
7/10

Vegetable Cutlets
You bite through the soft crunch of the crust into a tasty vegetable mash, one can detect the savoury sweetness of some fried onions in the mix.
Rs. 190 (usd 2.6) for 5 cutlets
7.5/10

Kaipake Fry
The bitter gourd is fried to minimise its bitter edge and then tossed in a mix of sliced onions, green chillies, chilli powder and fresh coriander with a heavy-handed drizzle of lemon juice that balances against the bitterness of the bitter gourd.
Rs. 190 (usd 2.6) for a full portion, roughly twice my tasting portion

8.5/10

Kaima Unde Bhartad
Crisp outside and juicy within, all that one tastes in these roundels is the flavour of the meat and the lush mouthfeel of the ghee. There is spicing, but subdued to celebrate the richness of the coarse meat.
Rs. 275 (usd 3.7) for 8 roundels
8.5/10

Onake Erachi
A traditional Kodava preparation of smoked pork, shredded and tossed with onions, chillies, spices and kachampuli. One can detect a faint ‘smokey’ veil on the bite.

8.5/10

Pandi Bhartad
A preparation that breaks down readily in the mouth, releasing the flavours of the deep roasted Kodava ‘kartha’ masala. The fat has a deliciously jammy, sticky texture and has rendered well into the dish.
Rs. 285 (usd 3.9) for a full portion, roughly twice my tasting portion
9/10

Thith Pandi
A simple dish that draws inspiration from the erstwhile Kodava tradition of hunting, the meat is tossed simply in some paringe molu (bird eye chillies) and rock salt.

9/10

The signature dish here, the pandhi curry is stained dark with the kartha masala and the kachampuli, and the sort that breaks down in a hurry the moment you bite on it releasing the flavours of the masala laden with the fat of the meat.

Bengaluru’s Most Popular Drive-In ROOMALI ROLLS At KABAB KORNER | Chicken Roomali Roll, Malai Kebab

#roomaliroll #kabab #bangalore

popular drive-in, car service eatery, kabab korner, rolls, kebabs, roomali roti, curries, north indian, chicken roomali roll, paneer, malai kabab, hariyali kabab, st marks road, bangalore

When it came to grabbing a quick bite of mostly kebabs and rolls, Kabab Korner, located in what was once upon a time the heart of Bangalore’s nightlife and entertainment action, ruled. One pulled up at the eatery, placed an order and would be relishing piping hot food served in the car a few minutes later. Over the years the action moved elsewhere, the number of vehicles on the city’s roads exploded manifold making it difficult to park, and ergo, Kabab Korner seems to have all but dropped from radar. In this short episode, I take advantage of the current lull in traffic and head back here after many years to relive old memories of their chicken roomali roll and a couple of kebabs. Hope you enjoy this one, stay safe and happy eating!

Chicken Roomali Roll
Served in a soft roomali roti with enough shredded chicken tikka and plenty of onions tossed with spices, the kabab korner chicken roomali roti still makes for a satisfying snack.
Rs. 210 (usd 2.8)
8/10

Malai Kebab
The kebab is moist and juicy, when savoured steaming hot.
Rs. 365 (usd 4.9)
7/10

Hariyali Kebab
You can taste the freshness of the coriander and mint in the green marinade, and the spicy kick of chilli too. The marinade though hasn't penetrated into the meat, making for a bland third or fourth chew of the kebab.
Rs. 365 (usd 4.9)
