To the point: 12 sumptuous and hearty one bowl meals to satiate your winter cravings!
There is nip in the air and Bangalore folks, we tell you how to enjoy our winter better And like us, if you enjoy a comforting meal then head to Monkey Bar for yummilicious meals. Piping hot bowl meals, with exotic choices like wild mushroom khichdi bowl or the good old homely bowl of rajma chawal they have it all.
Indulging our sense of taste and memories attached to flavours, some of their “one bowl” take us right back to our childhood sans any frills. Walk in for a treat from your mum’s kitchen – piping hot kadhi with fragrant basmati rice and crisp fried bhindi, creamy rajma with pickled onions, ghee and papad, Kasundi marinated fish, spicy Chicken Xacutti or the aromatic Kashmiri Mutton Yakhni.
But there are some fun bowls up for grabs too. Like the Wild Mushroom Khichdi – slow-cooked mushrooms in creamy moong dal khichdi. No doubt, khichdi may just become our national dish. For those who can’t get enough of their maach, there is Panch Phoron which is surmai cooked with Bengal’s famous kasundi mustard and served with gobindobhog rice. Another winning combo is the very Bangalore’s beloved Nagarjuna-inspired Chilli Chicken served with Malabari parotta and plantain chips.
For those who love their international meals, there is Moroccan Vegetable Tagine of mixed veggies, chickpeas, prunes, almonds and olives, served with couscous that’s sprinkled with aromatic za’atar and the Korean Bibimbap made with spicy gochujang steak and pink sticky rice, topped with fried eggs. The Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Bowl with teriyaki glazed chicken on a bed of sticky rice with a portion of kimchi and broad beans is another connoisseur’s dream come true.
We suggest go in with company to enjoy this uncomplicated dining experience and get the best of this winter. Mercury dips won’t give you woes anymore!
