More yummy Indian food



Zaitoon Bangalore

Chain stores featuring Arabic, Indian and Chinese cuisine.
Mildly flavored and suitable to our palate

Pudina naan. Very fragrant minty taste to a piece of roasted Indian bread.


Half chicken kebab. Marinated very well. Roasted to slight charred surface yet tender and juicy chicken thighs.

Hummus and garlic yogurt dip for Lebanese bread. Refreshing.

Finished our meal with nothing left on the plate! Not even the gravy. It's that good

333 hotel
Indians name their restaurants as hotels

Wonderful banana leaf rice and chicken biryani. Side orders are chicken 65 and chicken kebab.




Can never finish their portion of rice. So we always order 2 portions for 3pax.

Of course can't leave the ubiquitous CCD cafe (cafe coffee day)





It's the equivalent of star bucks in India
Caramel coffee
Cappuccino
Citrus infused coffee
Khus cocoja

Fruits here are also surprisingly fresh and cheap. Enjoyed mangoes, pomegranate, watermelon and grapes. All in season and juicy :)


On the way from Bangalore to Mysore, our chauffeur Mr Chikana also introduced us to this wonderful roadside onion bhaji







All these wonderful food without diarrhoea!

Food tour at Mysore



Indian food is surprisingly tasty and so flavoursome. Can never get sick of Indian curries and masala. Thanks to my dear sister in law, we survive India for 6 days without diarrhoea! And everything is so cheap here. Imagine 50%discount everyday.

Green leaf restaurant
Had a hearty Indian breakfast here

Vada
Deep fried savory Indian doughnut. Nice blend of Indian spices. Fragrant yet not overpowering



Masala Dosa
Indian bread toasted with cripsy skin, filled with potato cubes



Puri
My favorite puffy Indian savory pastry. Taste like roti canai in Malaysia.
All served with Dahl, curry and tomato chutney


The cup of masala tea tasted strangely familiar, just like our own teh tarik infused with masala


Polar bear ice cream parlour
Indians love ice creams. From ice cream roadside stalls to eateries, there's always a suitable flavor for one.
Spanish delight
A mixture of rum raisin and butter scotch ice cream sprinkled with peanut
Soft and rich in flavor.
Joy ice cream factory is just around the corner as well.

The sixth main

A nice variety of Indian vegetarian curries, complete with the sweet combination of ice cream with gulab jamun. The set also came with fried rice and curd rice.
Refreshing mango milkshake, thick and creamy banana lassi, sweet lassi (simply because there's salty lassi!)

Pearl restaurant

Masala butter chicken
Everything using a combination of butter, yogurt and tomato paste tastes incredible!


We will never get sick of eating
Tandoori chicken

Le fortune Coorg




Coorg chicken masala
No need to describe further. Anything with masala, perhaps not the beverages, taste heavenly rich and aromatic.



Gobi Manchurian
Apparently Manchurian means Chinese. It's deep fried cauliflower Indian style.

Parota
Taste like roti canai...Cripsy. roti here are usually not oily at all unless you order buttered ones


Butter chappati

All for Rs285!

Happy second day in India!

Great atmosphere. Good for gathering and birthday celebration too
