Best combination for Ragi mudde is Lamb head curry(non-veg)and in (veg-andhra style) its groundnut chutney or tomato chutney with Ghee.
Thanks MSVG!

Or is it that once we have had the starters, and the mad hunger is gone, then the main course doesnt seem so interesting. The funny thing is that if I again go back to the starters, i still find it tasty.
What I have noticed is that places which serve liquor have good starters and average main course.

Places that don't serve liquor have average starters and good main course.

This is just a general trend which I have observed, there can always be some exceptions.

One more place in Gandhi Bazaar is Kolhapuris.. Opposite to food world. Very tasty dishes. Small place.
Try Shivaji mess, next to Banshankari bus stop. Now they have opened in a big place. You can go with your family. Very good Biryani you get here.

Better avoid Amaravathi when you are with family.

Prashant is right next to Roti ghar. It is in the first and second floors of the corner building. The entrance is a narrow flight of stairs from the cross road. They have a separate family section. Btw, If you are looking for ambience and such stuff, forget this place.

Kolhapuri's is dead opposite Prashant. This is situated in the GandhiBazaar Market complex (next to SBI ATM). Even this is a good place.

For family dining, it best you avoid Amaravathy. As dreamdiesel and sushrutha have already said, it is just a small dinghy place.

even you can give a try in "chandoo's" malleshwaram. ragi mudde-naati koli is too good there. but not for family!
once again as one of our friends said earlier in the forum, you should forget those "ambiance" kinda stuffs.

. The food is good, but the place is a total put-off and it is always crowded.

Gati->GatieShop


I have used this service a couple of times to send Haleem to Chennai.
No Issues till date with.

The delivery generally happens the same day for order placed before 10 AM.
Delivery is between 8 and 11 PM.

Its served HOT. I guess the fly the box to Chennai, heat it in a microwave prior to delivery and then dispatch the same.

1 Kilo Haleem is good for around 4 to 5 people.

Note: Pista House is one of the largest manufacturers of Haleem. I use the word manufacturers as that is what they do considering the sheer volume they sell everyday.

I ordered their service, and had haleem last evening. Service was prompt, and cash on delivery. Package reached me at 9:30PM, well sealed.

In my case, it was barely warm, but i dont think i can blame them for it, considering how far away the airport is these days, and add to that the cold weather as well.

I highly recommend their service.

Good place for Haleem (mutton) in B'lore-

I have been a regular for last 4 years at the Pan stall opposite the Beef Market in Shivajinagar. Its in between the Empire restaurant & the Sweet shop, just near the entrance to the Gujri, bang opposite the car parking. You cant miss the big banner.

There is a master chef who prepares the Haleem & the pan shop guy sells it !
Yummy & delicious, my regular visit after office during Ramzaan time

You can also try some other shops on Broadway, for beef & chicken haleem. Another must try is the Special chai & mutton keema/vegetable samosa from Savera. Heavenly combination !!

Note : Forget all about ambience, this is the real Mccoy of street food !!
