Sour House is the ‘bread’child of Selvan Thandapani. His passion for experimenting with natural fermentation and poring over its many benefits lead to Sour House – a weekly subscription service that offers freshly baked sourdough to customers. Thandapani says that this venture is the first step in encouraging Bangaloreans to bring back healthy eating. Probiotic drinks and fermented veggies are also in the offing(Kombucha and Kimchi, yas!).
Selvan insists that the longer the bread is fermented, the better it is for your body and it also has a say in how sour your dough gets. However, it is best if you consume quickly so that it doesn’t harden. The bread parcel also comes with instructions on how to store the bread and we recommend you follow them. To get your weekly loaf, check out their website.You can also pick it up at their Koramangala store. The also have snacks like crackers and croutons, and the occasional cinnamon roll, and pizza base.
Since he’s a one-man-team, Thandapani can currently churn out 60 – 70 loaves per week. And he delivers to Koramangala, HSR, Belandur, Whitefield and Cooke Town (a small delivery charge may apply for some of the neighbourhoods). Prices for each loaf ranges between INR 180 and 220.
