#MilitaryHotel #RestaurantsInBangalore #GourmetOnTheRoad
Drop in at Ranganna Military Hotel for breakfast, lunch or dinner to chow down on rustic meaty dishes full of flavour.
Established way back in 1964, this eatery swears by its food and so do its patrons. Presently run by a husband-wife duo and their sons, the USP of the restaurant lies in the functioning of its kitchen.
In this episode of Gourmet On The Road, Food Lovers Editor, Kripal Amanna visits the 60-year-old establishment to explore its kitchen with third generation Co-owner, Sendil Kumar. He discovers that the prep here begins as early as 7am, and every dish is prepared using secret recipes and local ingredients!
He also relishes a meaty spread for lunch, tasting from a hearty mutton leg broth, to steaming hot mutton pulao, kheema gojju, ragi mudde and more!
GOURMET ON THE ROAD RATING
Bannur Mutton chops
Mutton has a decent amount of bite. Most of the fat from the meat has rendered into the gravy enhancing the meaty flavours of this dish.
Love the masala coating on this deep fried mackerel! The crunch, spice from the batter and prominent fish flavours make this a tasty fish fry!
a strong, deep flavoured dish, definitely for a hardcore carnivore to savour! Not my cup of tea though.
Chicken leg masala
spicy leg of chicken cooked with the skin on. The gravy is robust and rich and the meat is cooked right down to the bone yet juicy!
Raagi mudde and saaru
Wholesome, filling mudde served with a spicy saaru or meat gravy.
Goat leg soup
A hearty broth that can make a sick man walk! Mellow in flavours, one can taste the intense flavours of the bones that’s extracted into the broth.
An aromatic pulao, where the meat is cooked with the short grain jeeraga samba rice. The rice is intense in its meaty flavour and studded with flecks of coriander and chilli.
Mutton Kheema Gojju
Coarse mince, with flecks of fat, fresh peas and coriander. the kheema is coarsely ground, soaking up the masala. the peas pop in the mouth and the fat adds a burst of savouriness.
Very different from the gojju, the meat here is more finely ground and comes together as a ball or unde. The springy texture gives this meatball a chewy bite. The gravy, is lighter, with flavours of coriander.
