The movie 3 Idiots has this famous scene that talks about Gujarati cuisine. Watching it again again, my mouth started watering at the mention of Dhokla, Faafda, Thepla, Haandva... I immediately set out find some Gujarati restaurants around Koramangala.

Rajdhani in Koramangala promises to serve the typical Gujarati cuisine. The Gujarati speciality that Rajdhani serves is Masala Khichadi. This is one of the most popular dishes in Gujarat and tastes heavenly. Besides tasting delicious, it is also considered one of the most nutritious and simple dishes to prepare. It is made of a mixture steamed dal and rice with spices. It is served with Kadhi made of besan.

Even the Ollo Rotlo is something rare that a Gujarati would search for in Bengaluru. The bajra rotlo or roti is perfectly roasted and the Ollo has the right amount of spice.

Average cost of meal for two is Rs 600. No Alcohol served.

The dry vegetable dishes are most popular here. This restaurant serves a wide variety of Gujarati gravies and vegetables with phulka roti. Bataka nu shaak (made of potatoes) is always in demand. The sweet-tangy aroma and taste is simply irresistible. THE place for a vegetarian food lover and a Gujarati cuisine fan!
