Adding that sweet touch!

Gulkan, teamed with butter, is the main attraction here. Gulkan comes in three varieties — benne gulkan, dry fruits gulkan and bun-benne gulkan. However, salads with vegetables, fruits, sprouts and daals are also popular. Digestive drinks in different flavours  have their own takers. 

Started by Jagadeesh, 20 years back, the shop is now being looked after by his brother Narasimha Murthy. “We brothers just wanted to try our luck in this business. Our food varieties clicked, so we didn’t look back,” says Narasimha Murthy. “We prepare gulkan at home itself. As it is very good for health, many prefer to have it with their breakfast,” he adds.

The shop opens at 4 pm and closes at 10 pm. The closing time extends during weekends. “People rush to our shop during weekends. Hence we are open till 11 pm on Saturdays and Sundays when we work hard to cater to the needs of our customers," Narasimha Murthy informs.

This small shop attracts evening shoppers at Gandhi Bazaar and is a favourite hang-out for students and ladies. As the gulkan shop has been here for a long time, it has gained the faith of the people. Known for its healthy and hygienic preparations, the customers come here again and again. Digestive drinks like nimbu-masala soda, ginger soda, pudina soda and sweet-lime soda are available here.

Gangadhar, a regular customer for the last two years and who was seen enjoying a plate of benne gulkan, appreciates the food available here. “All the items here are very tasty and affordable. I always prefer benne gulkan with daal masala. I have introduced this eatery to many of my colleagues and friends,” he says.
