  4. Not willing to give up our search for the best dosas in this area, we walked a little ahead and came across Mahalakshmi Tiffin Rooms established since 1926! [img]http://www.gourmetindia.com/uploads/gallery/album_3/gallery_1_3_79355.jpg[/img] Dosa was pretty good and had a dollop of white butter which skated across the side.

  5. 100 Dosas at Dosamane

    Since Vidyarthi Bhavan was closed and after eating a dosa each at SLV and Mahalkshmi Tiffin Rooms, we passed by VB Dose camp and tried one more. Although this place has a 100 varieties of Dosas we opted for the benchmark Masala Dosa.

  6. Masala Dosa with potato filling is the ultimate south indian food (most probably the staple food in south india) but is relished in almost all parts of India. This item is not only healthy but also tastes great with crispy layers of dosa filled with delicious potato preparation as fillings. Effort wise Masala Dosa is simple but does take some time to complete as you have to cook one dosa at a time. And also considering that you also have to prepare the [url="http://www.bestofkanchan.com/indian-recipes/south-indian-sambar-recipe/"]sambar[/url] and [url="http://www.bestofkanchan.com/indian-recipes/coconut-chutney/"]coconut chutney[/url] as well to go along with this main dish, overall this is much like a mini-project.

  7. Much to my surprise , CTR (Central Tiffin Room) aka Sri Sagar won the Times dosa coffee contest leaving Vidyarthi bhavan in second place. I had eaten the dosas here way long ago and now I had to revisit this place. Provoked by the results of the Times contest , I decided it was time to have breakfast at CTR , even if this meant changing my perception of the Worlds Best dosa! With my alarm set at 6:00 am in the morning I decided to go with an open mind. Left home by 6:45 am and reached Margosa road in Malleswaram at 7:20 , I recognized the place as soon as I saw it. To my surprise there was absolutely no crowd at all. It kinda made me feel if I was at the right place and I was the first of their customers. The doors of CTR were yet to be fully opened and I made my self comfortable right in the middle. The place itself has an old world charm to it with a antique clock in the middle of the wall , surrounded by quotes and pictures of the Great lord Krishna. CTR in Malleshwaram, Vidyarthi Bhavan in Basavanagudi are legendary for creating great tasting Masala doses. Both these places are reminiscent of life in the sixties to people who have been around since then. These restaurants have hardly upgraded with time, preferring to retain their original ambiance which is now antiquated, but thankfully without compromise in food quality. Vidyarthi Bhavan did go through an upgrade though shutting doors for 3 weeks in May of this year ! Getting back to CTR ...right opposite where I sat was the menu board on display&#33 I asked the friendly waiter for a Benne (butter) Masala dosa - (Rs 20 ).It took about 10 minutes and there it was ..... The dosa looked crisp with an aroma of fresh ghee (heated butter). I dug into it and it was as crisp as it looked , with a unique taste of its own. There were two chutneys on offer one a plain coconut chutney and the other a pudina (may be methi) chutney. The taste of course was an experience to remember. I ordered for another one and by this time the place was quickly filling up. After having the 2nd dosa , I ordered for coffee. Nothing special about the coffee though but tasted good like most filter coffees with the right amount of milk and sugar. My bill was a meager Rs 46 and the experience priceless. It would be wrong for me to compare Vidyarthi bhavan dosa and CTR dosa , they both are legendary in their own way , but personally Vidyarthi bhavan for me is still the un disputed leader in DOSAs ! Having satisfied my craving for dosas , I dragged myself out and got on my way to office. Now Called Sri Sagar. No.154, Ground Floor Margosa Road, 7th Cross, Malleswaram, Bangalore - India
  8. Vidyarthi Bhavan

    Last Sunday at Chetan's insistence, I dragged myself out of bed early and met up with him at Vidyarthi Bhavan located in one of the oldest areas of Bangalore. Vidyarthi Bhavan looks like it's stuck in a time warp and has the same look as it must have been 50 years ago. We got a table after a good 30 minutes of 'hovering' around customers who were about to finish (much like a Parsi wedding). Chetan recommended the Dosas and I wasn't disappointed, they were thick and crisp almost like a Tuille. After eating two Dosas each there wasnt room to try anything else so that will have to wait for our next visit. We left our much coveted seats to other eager 'hovering' customers. I must mention that the waiters are experts in bringing out over a dozen dosas stacked on a single arm! I tried to take a photograph of this amazing dexterity but they were too fast for me. Possibly the best Dosas in Bangalore
