The menu is a result of extensive research by the team behind this venture. They’ve taken into account the local delicacies, some rare dishes from specific regions and added some innovation to existing ones. You can try ‘Netholi Fry’ that is a hit with ‘Toddy’ shops across the backwaters or indulge in the various Kerala style cutlet varieties that are truly delicious. The mutton fry and the beef version called the ‘Syrian Erachi Fry’, are both popular delicacies and cooked really well at this diner. Being food from Kerala, the fish fry or the fish curries are a must-try here.
You can try the ’Puttu’ or ‘Pathiri’, both are rice flour delicacies that are perfect accompaniments to curries. In their quest to bring the true Kerala food, the chef has even brought the Ramassery Idly to the menu. Native to Ramassery, a small village near Pallakad, this idly recipe is now followed by only four families from the village. And naturally, the restaurant has one of these cooks in their kitchen to get you the true taste of this soft flat idly.
Best when had with Chicken curry or the ‘Kadla Curry’ which is a vegetarian version. The ‘sambar’ here is also the ‘Kerala’ version and not the Tamil and Udupi variants that we usually get in Bengaluru. There’s also a popular relish, ‘Pineapple Nendram Masala’ that you can order on the side with your meal. Made with pineapple and banana, this one’s a unique relish! You would’ve never tasted anything like this before. We just loved having it.
Finish your meal with the signature ‘Kandhari’ Ice cream which has a nice hot and sweet punch. The ‘Cloud Pudding’ is a must-have for all your tender coconut lovers. It’s sweet, creamy and light. The best part about the meal here is that your gut doesn’t feel as heavy as it should after having eaten so much. But that’s the best part about Kerala cuisine. It doesn’t make you feel heavy and bloated after.
‘Kappa Chakka Kandhari’ has engaged many home cooks in their kitchen to bring true flavours to your table. They believe that “Merely borrowing recipes wouldn't bring the love and joy into the cooking” hence they get many home chefs to cook for you here.
Authentic flavours, healthy and nutritious food cooked by home chefs with the passion that makes dining here a delight.
