The taste of Maharashtra

Experience the unexplored variety of fast food dishes which give us the feel of Mumbai at Rajvardhan Food, Jayanagar .

Bangalore is home not only to exotic cuisines from all around the world, but also to a variety of khana from diffferent Indian states. However, amidst all the dhaba-esque Punjabi restaurants and the ubiquitous Andhra-style eateries, the cuisine of Maharashtra is not adequately represented.

Let’s face it, apart from a couple of really well known dishes like Vada Pav (which I believe is India’s answer to the Burger) and Pav Bhaji (which now has a cult following thanks to the roadside vendors), most of us are unaware of the dishes so dearly loved by the Marathi population. Rajvardhan Foods is a rare exponent of the unexplored variety of fast food dishes which give us the feel of Amchi Mumbai.

Situated in a small lane close to the gargantuan Big Bazaar and Bangalore Central malls in Jayanagar 9th block, this tiny fast-food outlet is easy to miss.

However, those whose know about this restaurant, frequently flock it. The crowd at times so dense that it exposes the shortage of tables present in this restaurant. The service is a bit on the slower side owing to the fact that all the dishes are freshly prepared. This place is known for its value for money, as a sumptuous snack would cost you around Rs 50-70.

Many people believe that this restaurant offers the best Vada Pav(spicy potato cutlet stuffed in between two pieces of toasted bun) in Bangalore. Sabudana Vada (cutlet made out of Tapioca pearls) is also a must-try dish. Other noteworthy dishes include Thalipeeth (multi-grain spicy pancake), Misal Pav (Bun with curry made out tamarind and sprouts) and Shrikand Poori (Pooris served with a sweet dish made out of strained yoghurt).This is also one of the few places which offers a couple of dishes, such as Upavasa Thalipeeth and Sabudana Khichidi which can be consumed even when one is fasting. All these dishes are served with tamarind chutney or curd. These snacks are complemented well by drinks such as Cocum Sharbath and Kairi Panna.

To try these dishes out head to Rajvardhan foods and experience the authentic taste of the delectable Maharasthrian cuisine.  ⊕

Addressing pet dog attacks: A balance between regulation and compassion

Government intervention is necessary to prevent indiscriminate breeding and trade of pet dogs, and more shelters are needed for abandoned pets.

Recently, two pet Rottweiler dogs attacked a five-year-old child and her mother in a  Corporation park in Nungambakkam, Chennai. Based on a complaint following the incident, police arrested the owners of the dog for negligence and endangering the lives of others (IPC Section 289 and 336). As General Manager-Administration of the Blue Cross of India, I have seen several Rottweilers over the years.

A major portion of the responsibility…
