Thalappakatti Biriyani in Batlagundu is a good option for you.

You should be able to get to Kodai in 4 hrs even if you drive at a normal pace. Stopping between Salem and Dindigul will be an absolute nightmare ( read thermal shock )

If your kids have motion sickness , suggest you don't get them to eat before a ghat climb. It's a good 90 min climb. Maybe something like biscuits would do.

Alternatively Venu Biriyani in Dindigul town is a famous joint. 49, East Car Street, Begambur, Dindigul, Tamil Nadu 624001. ( Avila Le on Google Maps )

Talpakatti Biryani is available at Bathlagundu.

There is a Dindigul Tallapakati just opened 2 weeks
ago at Kodaikanal( opp Govt Hospital ). Easy to find and at the entrance of Kodai. Good food. Was there the day it opened.

Tank up in Shoolagiri , while coming back there is an A2B somewhere close to Dharmapuri. That complex had a company operated fuel bunk. Bunks in Kodai open only at 8 am so if you going to start early and need fuel , tank up the previous day.

Enjoy the climate. It's just awesome for summer.

Thanks, I think I will carry some snacks just incase and try to hit Kodai for a late lunch. I am lodging at villa retreat- will check if they can hold on to lunch for us.
