Coastal food at its best

Megha Shenoy, Dec 8, 2012

Indiranagar is bustling with eateries serving different cuisines for different budgets. Tucked away near the BDA complex here, there is a small restaurant called Curry Meen.

 The vegetarian thali.Just a year-and-a-half into existence, the eatery is quite popular with foodies in the area. Very affordable with a nice serene ambience, the eatery is known for its Kerala delicacies.
The owner, Abhilash Damodaran, says that what sets his joint apart is the fact that he has brought in the cooks and the recipes from God’s own country itself. “We always wanted to offer authentic and traditional Kerala cuisine to Bangaloreans. That’s why we brought in all the original recipes from Kerala itself,” he adds.

One can dig in to an array of seafood ranging from Konchu Varuthathu (prawns fry), mussels fry, Karimeen Porichattu (river fish fry), Meen Pollichatu, crabs masala etc or even the Malabar style mutton and chicken delicacies. They also have an interesting range of vegetarian dishes including the kadla curry, avial, poriyal, koottu, and so on.

One of the must try items here is the Ellineeru Payasam, made out of tender coconut. “It’s something different that we have introduced and many who have tried it have given us a positive response,” he says.

Taking the authentic flavours to another level, the eatery also celebrates the main festivals of Kerala –– Vishu and Onam. “We try to keep the spirit of the customers by giving them something new and introducing new items. During Onam, we hold the traditional sadhya with all the 24 special dishes that is served out there,” he says.

In fact out of popular demand, they have even tried out the typical Kerala street food like kallumkkai, fried chicken, liver fry etc. “These dishes are often found in kallu shops or small liquor shops in Kerala. They tend to have a flavour of their own and that’s what we tried to bring out when we introduced them out here,” says Abhilash.

Since in the afternoons, the place is visited by the working crowd of the area, the eatery has a special unlimited thali which is priced at only Rs 99. Kajal, who recently dined at the place, says that she really enjoyed the seafood.

“I really liked the fish moilee, that was served with steamed rice, and even the mussel fry was very tasty,” she adds.

Open only for lunch and dinner, Curry Meen is located at No 218, Double Road, Near BDA, Indiranagar. For details, call 42283999.
