Millet menu at Jayanagar

Prems Graama Bhojanam

Located in Jayanagar, the most happening food hub in Bengaluru, Prems Graama Bhojanam serves delicious traditional south Indian village food.

Their south Indian fare is special as they use 100 percent Indian millets and the food is cost effective too. Millets are said to be rich in fibre, magnesium, and Niacin (vitamin B3). They are gluten-free and are considered superfoods. “We only use millets like Pearl Millet (Bajra), Thinai Millet, Varagu Millet, Finger Millet (Raagi), Sorghum, Jowar exclusively instead of white rice, wheat flour, vanaspati, artificial colours or sugar making it a very healthy meal. We also use bamboo rice, red rice and black rice,” says Yuvajith Venkatanarayan, one of the owners.

The restaurant has a delightful ambience what with all things native and the walls adorned with Warli paintings. A sumptuous meal here will take you down memory lane and remind you of your grandma’s home-cooked tasty meal. Yuvajith says that they chalked out a menu after discussing with the women in the family.

Further, a chance meeting with Krishna Murthy, who developed the concept of using only millets while cooking in Chennai, inspired him to open a restaurant in Chennai and after its successful run, another chain in Bengaluru. The Bengaluru outlet recently completed a year and Yuvajith is upbeat about opening another branch in Malleshwaram shortly.
He says the restaurant follows the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), conducts quality control checks and also interacts with customers to get a feedback. We ensure each customer is served the best.

Timely feedbacks are received and in case something is not right we try to correct it immediately “, adds Yuvajith. Even the water here is infused with Tulsi.

The eatery is located at No 234, 2nd Main, 32nd A cross, 7th Block, Jayanagar. For details, call 98866 46411.
