Homesick North Indian's Head To This Bellandur Joint For Their Crazy Good Chole Bathures

North Indian, Vegetarian, Large Selection
What Makes it Awesome
Chole bathures that remind every (stereotypical) North Indian of their home is what these guys specialise in. And with the North Indian patrons that keep thronging this place, you know it's guaranteed goodness. A self-service format, order your chole bhatures and wait in anticipation to get that rich and thick chole curry and puris that look like zeppelins. Wait time could vary from five to 10 minutes depending on the crowd, but once you get it, dig in. Tear off a piece of the golden yellow puris and dunk it into the spicy chole. Served with a side of masala aloo, pickle, onions, and pickled chillies, you know you are home. Repeat till you are left with nothing but a clean plate.
Murli primarily serves North Indian but it also has South Indian and Chinese fare to appeal to a wider range of patrons. Not that we have any issues with the fluffy idlis or the Chindian Manchurian, but we couldn’t look past the Rajma Chawal, Papdi Chaat, the full-fledged North Indian thali, Dal Tadki-Naan combos, and other staple North Indian fare. Crowded especially during lunch, Murli does savoury and sweets such as namkeens, jalebis, laddoos, and all those Indian sweets that you gorge on during festivals or weddings.
Sunday mornings can get pretty crowded so you'll need to go in a bit early to get a table.
