Chicken Tikka, Rolls & Fish Thali: Three Reasons To Visit Indiranagar’s BDA Complex

For the most part, businesses at Indiarangar’s crumbling BDA complex revolve around the RTO that’s housed there. As you roam around, agents call out to you and you see small establishments that help you become a certified driver. But if you look closely, you’ll also find treats for your rumbling stomach as well. Hearty Punjabi fare, meaty rolls, and seafood await you! Here are three pocket-friendly meals that you can gorge on at Indiranagar’s BDA Complex.

Danny Lamba’s Punjabi Dhaba

A busy dhaba that runs out of a shop here, Danny Lamba’s makes up for its lack of ambience with robust flavours. Settle in {you can even order up a meal on Swiggy} and sample as much as you can from their menu. Their smoky and spicy chicken tikka {they have a paneer version too} served with a fresh mint chutney is a must have. For the mains, you can move onto good old Rajma Chawal that comes loaded with familiar and comforting flavours. There’s also the creamy Afghani Kebab and Tandoori Chicken that are worth sinking your teeth into. For all the details on Danny Lamba’s, click here

New Shahi Kabab Roll Centre

This stall does brisk business at lunch and evening time and is popular with office-goers and the working class too. At lunch, you can dig into plates of lightly-spiced, Muslim-style chicken biryani for just INR 60 bucks. Pair this up with a plate of kebabs and you’ll go back with a happy tummy. The real action, however, unfolds when the sun sets. After 6 pm, you can chomp on plump rolls {for around INR 45 each} in chicken, mutton, and beef versions. Our pick is the Beef Sheek Rolls – tender chunks of meat wrapped up in soft rumali rotis. Since the rolls are pretty small, we recommend that you pick up enough to have a filling meal.

Mathysa Darshini

Run by the State’s fisheries department, Mathsya Darshini is for the seafood lovers. At meal times, you can eat your way through simple yet flavourful fish thalis. For a little over a hundred rupees, you’ll get a Mangalore-style fish curry paired with boiled rice, a sizeable ragi ball, rasam, and soothing butter milk. You can spice up your meal with slices of fried fish {find out what the fresh catch of the day is}. They coat slivers of seer, mackerel, or lady fish with a chilli and turmeric paste before letting it sizzle on the pan. The crunchy Fish Kababs are worth biting into too.
