In this throwback episode, we visit Nagarjuna, a popular Andhra eatery, to order and take away their popular vegetarian carrier meals, post temperature checks, hand sanitisation and electronic payment, time-appropriate practices that we will need to get used to. The food, packed in tamper proof containers and relished in the comfort of our home, though remains as comforting as one remembers it from the good old days. Hope you enjoy our this one, take care, stay safe and strong.
Note: This episode was first released in May 2020 and is being rerun to support Bengaluru eateries with takeaway orders in the current situation. Please do support local eateries.
Vegetarian Carrier Meals
This weighty meal can feed an army, well, at least 3 to 4 hungry diners. The food is staple Nagarjuna fare with creamy lentils pappu, nourishing sambar, tangy tomato rasam, teh customary koora or vegetable with all the mandatory accoutrements – pappulu podi, curd chillies, payasam, papad, pickle and more served with a humongous bucket of rice.
Rs. 420 (usd 5.5)
Chicken Sholay Kebab
One of Nagarjuna’s most popular boneless chicken appetisers is embellished with loads of curry leaves. The flavours seem a bit sedate in takeaway mode when the dish is eaten around 30 minutes or so after it’s prepared, as compared to the spicy, aggressive bite one encountered when eating this at the restaurant. A tasty bite nonetheless.
Rs. 305 (usd 4)
The chilli, spelt with a ‘y’ as opposed to an ‘i’ on the menu is as unique as the dish in itself. Not to be confused with the popular Sino-Indian version, this is Andhra’s ode to its love affair with the chilli. The chicken is moist and juicy, soaking up a gravy made of copious amounts of green chillies, a dish that will have you begging for more punishment if that’s your thing! Definitely not for the faint-hearted though!
Rs. 285 (usd 3.8)
Note: Due to the current uncertain situation, please call the eatery to ascertain the timings and what is available. Prices may have changed since when this episode was originally published a year ago.
