If you have no clue what authentic Bihari cuisine tastes like, The Potbelly Divine is here to change that for you. The famous Delhi based Bihari restaurant - The Potbelly Divine has now opened in Bangalore, right above Third Wave Coffee Roasters in Indiranagar. The whole place is tastefully done with chairs made out of charpai sheets and ikat seat coverings, walls made out cement and engraved with local art work (totally Insta worthy). Get your dose of Litti Chokha, Dal Bhaat Thali and Sarso Macchli (mustard-based fish curry served with rice). So, if you like a dash of mustard in your food, this place is sure to steal your heart. If you don’t, keep an open mind and the food will speak for itself.
Start off your meal with a refreshing glass of lemonade priced at INR 90. For starters order the Baggia Basket which is pockets of rice flour with spiced channa dal stuffing with tomato chokha (mashed tomatoes with mustard) and Meat Pakora Basket (mutton and chicken pakoras with chutneys). Move on the mains and order Khada Masala Mutton (mutton in spicy gravy served with rice and boondi raita) priced at INR 420 and vegetarians order their Litti Chokha which is an authentic Bihari dish consisting of whole wheat balls stuffed with sattu (spice gram flour) served with channa dal, mashed aubergine and potato mash priced at INR 320. If you are a seafood lover, there’s plenty for you to choose from. Try their seafood platter which has Jhinga Macchli, Sarso Macchli, and Dehati Fish n Chips among others. End your meal with a serving of Saffron Boondhi on Hung Curd and Makahana Kheer. Head here with family, friends or bae and enjoy the authentic Bihari cuisine, just as we did.
