‘Sumac’ offers authentic Turkish, Afghan dishes

The powder Sumac, which packs a tart, lemony, almost vinegar-like flavour, is the Middle Eastern equivalent of our ‘garam masala’. A restaurant in Bengaluru’s Kammanahalli, named after this ingredient, serves authentic Turkish and Afghani dishes.

Sumac offers a decent ambience with portraits of iconic Turkish landmarks and the quintessential multi-coloured hanging lamps. Even the sitting chairs and dining tables are designed to replicate the west Asian style.

The government in the state shifts from the Left Front to the UDF and vice versa in each Assembly election. However, in the general elections, Kerala seems to prefer the Congress-led UDF and has given the Left Front a mandate only a few times.
