A leaf from home

It’s a quaint little place in Indiranagar which offers food prepared just like it is at home. It’s a hole in the wall place almost hidden in the corner of Tippasandra Market and has about 20 seats in a canteen-like format.

If you really want to have a quick Kerala meal, ‘Moti’s Kitchen’ is the ideal place to be. The menu is not lavish but everything on it is simple and tasty. It’s one of those places you can eat at without burning a hole in your pocket and gorge on as much as you want, maybe even more!


As Kerala food is their speciality, you will find many dishes from the region. Depending on when you are heading to the restaurant, you can choose from the different meals offered there. ‘Moti’s Kitchen’ offers a variety of delicious ‘biryanis’, including chicken, egg and prawns. You can even have the ‘Puttu biryani’ if that’s your cup of tea. Experience a true Kerala meal with the ‘Pothichoru’ — rice and other accompaniments wrapped in banana leaf — a wholesome bite indeed. The restaurant also offers other specialities like ‘parota’, ‘chappati’ and ‘appam’ that you can enjoy with dishes like ‘Chicken Malabari’, ‘Chicken roast’, ‘Egg curry’, ‘Egg roast’, ‘Fish curry’ or ‘Veg stew’.

The quantities offered are good enough for one, sometimes even two. If you still feel like you want to eat more, try their fish items like ‘Kilimeen fry’ and ‘Kallumakkaya’. Be careful as the food here is on the spicier side, just as the regional cuisine requires it to be. The dishes have just the right amount of gravy for you to dip  and enjoy your meal. Even with a large number of customers  during peak hours, the staff keeps the place clean which is definitely a bonus.

‘Moti’s Kitchen’ is located at No 2, 9th Main Road, opposite Meenakshi Electricals, Seethappa Colony, New Tippasandra. For details, call 9986106775.
