Dosa Time! Stuff Your Face With Delicious South Indian Food From These Tiffin Centres
Pragathi Tiffin Center
Located at Hanuman Tekdi, Pragathi Tiffin Center is apparently one of the oldest places serving dosas in the city. We loved the Butter Paneer Masala Dosa here, but the idlis really made us its loyalist. If you love your idlis dipped in sambar or chutney, or both — you must go here. However, don't expect anything fancy as it is merely a roadside stall which is hygienic.
House Of Dosas
Govind Ki Bandi
Narayana Tiffin Center
This hole in the wall tiffin centre (also called as Babai Hotel) has an open kitchen and limited seating. But, its loyalists swear that it's their favourite place for breakfast, and is open as early as from 3.30am. Try the Ghee Upma Dosa with podi and allam pachadi. The Peserrattu and Punugulu here are worth a mention too because they are served with generous amounts of ghee. The best part is that you can get all of the tiffins within a range of INR 20-30.
Royal Tiffin Centre
If you're bored of the plain, simple dosas and idlis — get to Royal Tiffin Centre in Abids for innovative versions of the same, and more. The Special Pizza Dosa, Pasta Dosa, Manchuria Dosa, Idli Butter Cheese Dosa will get you drooling. While here, also try their uttapams and upmas. Although, it may look sort of cramped, they have decent seating and have maintained cleanliness. It is also pocket-friendly, with prices starting at INR 25.
Kakatiya Tiffins & Meals
Kakatiya Tiffins & Meals is a basic tiffin joint in Banjara Hills that runs full house right from the time it opens and you'll find big groups of youngsters and food lovers huddling for their share of uthappam, karam dosa, Mysore Bajji. Served with four types of chutney, the good peeps behind the counter will help you with deciding what chutney goes best with your breakfast. It doesn't matter what you choose, you are in for a treat with their idlis generously dunked in chutney or egg dosa for those of you who prefer egg for their breakfast.
