Not only for mithai, but Bhartiya Jalpan is also known for some good heavy duty North Indian breakfast dishes and snacks such as puri aloo and chole bhature. It's no regular mithai shop, but a much fancier upgrade to a traditional one. There is al fresco seating at the Indiranagar outlet, much like a cafe and you can also sit inside. An entire room inside is dedicated to dry fruits and you can even lounge around in a sofa while you decide what kind of a mix to buy yourself. Though the place looks fancy, the prices are not and here you will get pretty affordable snacks.
The Puri Aloo, of course, is what you need to try first and must. They also do Club Kachoris (mini kachoris) served with an aloo subzi. You should also try the chole bhature, and matar puri (a peas puri) also served with a potato curry. Evenings are dedicated to hot samosas, chillas, pani puri and jalebis. Would highly recommend their wafer thin and crunchy jalebis and also their authentic North Indian pani puri.
Their lunchtime thalis — Special and Shahi are also good value for money with dal, rice, two kinds of veggies including paneer, a choice of rotis, salad, papad and sweet along with bottled water.
