Street Food: Thattukada in Indiranagar, Bengaluru

Street Food of Kerala #letsguide

I came across a shop named Thattukada in Thippasandra, near Indiranagar, in Bengaluru. Thattukada is characteristic of Kerala and refers to roadside eateries. It is a part of the street food culture of India.

This one claimed to offer street food of Kerala. The offering is typical of Thattukadas — tea, fried snacks, parotta – Kerala style, chicken and mutton curry, puttu with kadala curry.

I saw a stream of patrons in the evening. This could also be due to its proximity to the Thippasandra Main Road, which is packed with shops selling household goods and grocery shops.

The eatery has just one table that can accommodate four persons. Most people relished their tea and snacks like in any streetside eatery — standing on the street. Many patrons opted for a parcel.

This is the second time I am trying street food of Kerala.

Some things always taste best in such eateries. One patron said she visits the shop only for the tea. She added there is a saying in Kerala about there being a Thattukada even on the Moon!

For people who want an option closer home, this is it:

I am a journalist based in Bengaluru. Every day, every moment, each one of us sees a different aspect of our home, the planet Earth, and its people. Sharing them enables others to indulge in our point of view. Star of Nowhere is my blog about my view of some interesting developments in the world. Could be on any development that piques my curiosity. Centre of South is about my experiences in travel and food. I relish local food and conversations with people in places I visit. I share some of my travel stories and about the food I try. Yea... I guess sometimes people do wonder why is this chap clicking pics of his meal! I would be happy to offer tips or guidance in south India. Most visitors to India are drawn by the Taj Mahal, which is one of the wonders of the world, and the forts of Rajasthan. I invite you to look beyond these two places, at south India. I will be writing about the interesting places in this highly developed part of India, where the people are better educated, enjoy a better standard of living as compared to the rest of India, have built a reliable network of roads and transport services, and can count on state-of-the-art healthcare infrastructure. South India is safer than any other part of India, and the gateway to south India is Bengaluru (aka Bangalore). Where do you want to go in south India? I would be happy to be of service to fellow travellers
