Celebrating Thanksgiving in Bangalore


I celebrated my first Thanksgiving in Bangalore and had an authentic North Karnataka meal at Kamat in Jayanagar. This was quite a meal! Served on a banana leaf (no utensils), the meal consisted primarily of hot jowar roti and yangai (egg plant curry). It came with two other vegetable curries, lentil, fresh yoghurt, two varieties of chutneys, spring onion and papads. Once you are done with the rotis (unlimited in supply), you are served with a mound of hot white rice and sambar. You finish the meal with a banana and a paan.

The menu in this place is fixed and your only choice is between “regular” and “special”. All of us opted for the “regular” so I could not find out what the “special” meal consisted of. The waiters were dressed in traditional rural attire with a brown kurta, white dhoti and a cap. The restaurant was on the terrace which had a tiled roof and a large patio.

This one will definitely go on the “A” list! Next time you are in Bangalore, put this on your “must-visit” list.

Happy Turkey Day!
