Biscuits that melt in your mouth

Crisp confectioneries

A variety of biscuits on display.

Jyothi Bakery, on the main road of Mariyappanpalya, is quite popular among the residents of Rajajinagar. It is famous for all varieties of cakes, butter biscuits, puffs and confectioneries but the crisp, delicious biscuits prepared in the bakery have made this shop really famous.

The bakery was started in 1972 by Krishnamurthy who hailed from Hassan and from 1985 it passed into the hands of Narasimhamurthy.

The speciality here is the eight varieties of biscuits that are made each day. Butter biscuits, salt biscuits, cashew biscuits, khara biscuits, coconut biscuits are the most popular. The main ingredients are maida, margarine (or dalda — a kind of vegetable oil), pure ghee, sugar and required flavours. 

When asked about the secret, Narasimhamurthy says, “We bring fresh butter from Hassan and make pure ghee out of it. This is used in the recipe and
makes the biscuits crisp and delicious. Moreover, we prepare the food items fresh each day and never sell old stuff.”

Customers at the bakery. People from all walks of life are drawn to the bakery with almost 70 per cent of them being old clients. Ravi, a contractor, visits the bakery frequently.

“I have been visiting the bakery for five years and all the items are awesome. The butter biscuits literally melt in the mouth,” he says.

“The business is good and nearly 700 customers visit the shop every day. Our shop has become a landmark in the Rajajinagar area. If you ask any auto driver to drop you at Jyothi bakery, he will bring you straight here without asking any question,” says Lakshmi Janardhan, Narasimhamurthy’s son, who also looks after the
business.
