Indian Paratha Company Devanahalli

A standalone dedicated place serving only parathas is hard to come by on the highways in South India – Indian Paratha Company is the first.

Veg parathas + chai + a beautiful piece road leading to the place are good enough to entice the motorcyclists – so around 12 hungry motorcycling pals descended to this place – occasion being the last bachelor ride of a dear friend.

Based on what we tried, I recommend:

Mooli Paratha and Ginger Chai:

This was a real surprise, I am not a fan of Mooli parathas in South India (somehow it just doesn’t taste as good as they do up-north) – but the ones here were good and tasted much better than the popular aloo parathas.

The Sidekicks – Achar + green chutney were lip-smackingly delicious!! (no-wonder they are charged extra :P)

The Ginger tea is a perfect companion on a cold-morning ride 🙂

Parathzza:

A base made of paratha-dough (akin to the pizza-base) and the stuffings laid-out on top (akin to pizza toppings) – voila, parathzza !!

  • Eating outdoors is best enjoyed till 9 to 9:30 am and from 5 pm onwards (highly recommended to avoid other times of the day)
  • Food is on the expensive side ( An average of 70 to 100/plate of paratha – which is 4 slices)
  • Veg-food only
  • Milkshakes , inspite being on the menu werent available
  • Lots of space to sit, hang-out, relax and eat at your own pace (unlike some places where the next group of people are breathing down your neck to vacate the table)
  • Cards Accepted
  • Timings: 7 am to 11 pm all days (although I recommend to reach after 730 am )
