Sri Lakshmi Tiffin Centre Mulbagal

Mulbagal is famous for magnificent temples, rock-climbing and delicious food (dosas, idlis and chaats). In-fact cooks from Mulbagal often find a place in the entourage of Karnataka’s ministers during their tours/campaigns.

Mulbagal or Mulabagilu translates to Eastern Door in Kannada. Historically Mulbagal was the easternmost gateway to the majestic Vijayanagara Empire and the previous state of Mysore.

Onion Dosa – I know it resembles a pizza 😛 – Tastes way better!!

Sri Lakshmi Tiffin Centre represents the epitome of  dosa-making in Mulbagal and is thronged by the locals for their daily-dose of breakfast and evening snacks.

Although the menu varies – staples include dosas (Masala, Plain and Onion), Idli (Thatte Idli, Regular Idli, Sabakki Idli), Rice bath (varies daily) and mini-vadas.

Masala Dosa in one of its supreme forms 🙂

Undoubtedly its the ‘Dosas’ that take the crown, try any of their dosas and you wont be disappointed. My personal favorites are Masala Dosa and Onion Dosa. The Idlis are good, but not as great as the dosas.

The dosas are cooked in a special vessel with a side-wall – making them with soft-at-the-centre and crispy at-the-ends.
