attractions and sampling some of the local cuisine now let's dive right into our bangalore food tour good morning good morning guys greetings from bengaluru india i'm joined with my good friend anishwara and we're going to be having a delicious south indian breakfast this morning yeah so this place has been around for like approximately 70 years you get dosa's cds everything that's you know the typical south indian breakfast and also the karnataka filter coffee oh my gosh i love dosas in italy and you know what i need a coffee we've been here for a while we will walk around the flower market wonderful that's right we have an hour's wait they gave us a ticket a specific number so we have to be back at that set time and then they'll call our number then we get to go inside but in the meantime let's go check out the flower market this is a fruit and flower market as well as like you know random things like beers and stuff that gets active during the festive season oh wow and um everything comes in fresh in the morning like early in the morning see around five in the morning five to six months oh that's so cool and uh yeah so that's what happens and it gets over everything gets over by like twelve busy in the morning super busy early in the morning and i've noticed some very colorful displays so far yeah it's impressive the flower market here is incredible just so many colors it's so neat to see all the vendors setting up shop and all the people coming by and purchasing the flowers and also it's great to be visiting when it's busy but not crazy we visited the flower market in hyderabad during the diwali and we didn't even have so much as an inch to get around here it's busy but not crazy busy so i'm able to comfortably walk around and kind of take it all in when do people typically buy flowers here so here people buy flowers mostly during the festive season there are people who buy flowers like every day for you know like worship and all that also for weddings we have this ritual where people put garlands around each other so yeah that's when people buy flowers so over here this lady is making a garland that looks just like that oh let's use for weddings yeah that's the one i was telling you about that's what people put around each other for weddings oh it looks beautiful this is literally the biggest line i've ever seen to go into a restaurant i'm gonna pop the camera for you so you can just see how big it is check out this one that is the line to get it that is incredible i don't think i've ever been more excited to sit down for food oh my gosh started way back in 1943 okay started as a small students eatery to south to the students who are studying nearby this breakfast was legendary we wanted to sample a mix of typical south indian breakfast items so we got a large puri with aloo which is potato curry paired with a spicy chutney italy a savory rice cake that was floating in sambar vada a savory fried doughnut also accompanied by sambar and with two types of semolina karabad which was spicy and kasaribad which was sweet all right i'm so excited all the breakfast items have arrived and i have to say already i think it's worth the wait we waited for an hour i think it's worth the wait so we're just gonna grab a piece of the puri oh my gosh that's one thing that we've been having a lot on this channel yeah we've been eating a lot of puri it's been delicious so i'm gonna put a little bit of the potato mash on here and dip it into those i should dip it into the chutney as well wow oh my gosh it's so good so tasty it's a little bit spicier than i expected and is this where we get the spice from yeah from the chutney so that's made with coconut green chillies and coriander so this one has been soaking in the sambal sauce so i've got i've got a lot of the sambal don't get into the chutney oh that's going to be awesome oh my gosh i've never had this so saturated before it actually tastes more like sauce than anything else basically has a sponge-like consistency it absorbs all those sauces any sauce you throw at it it absorbs completely so moving on we have the the batter and the neat thing about tavara it's basically a crispy savory doughnut it's batter that's deep fried and then you have it with the sambal okay and so oh wow it's piping hot it's hot in the hands swimming in there swimming in there what about the chutney this is spicy or spicy okay oh that's nice is it spicy for you a little bit but not as spicy as the chutney the chinese number one okay and moving on this is kind of the sweeter one yeah that's the sweeter version of the same thing the same thing and it has a polenta like consistency oh i really like the sweet one i have to admit i like the sweet one because we've been having a lot of savory juices and i still have the dosa tacoma whoa chutney oh my gosh look at that chutney then it was time for the main event dosas this dosa was thicker from other ones i've tried before and it reminded me of a fluffy pancake it was very crispy and golden on the outside but soft and spongy in the interior it was stuffed with a potato mash and there was lots of chutney and sambar for dipping dip it in the chutney into the chutney no wait there's more oh there's so there's there's a lot to do here into the sambal oh my god this is so good best dosa hands down ever i've never had anything quite like this where it's actually on the outside spongy in the middle absorbs the wonderful chutneys of course you have that the spicy coconut one you have the sambal that's a game changing though game changing are you gonna come back yeah i'll stand in line again for an hour i do that this is the typical filter coffee which you get famously in karnataka so it comes in this sort of cup and a glass so you pour it in here and then you drink it bit by bit so you see how there's a lot of thoughts so they pour it back and forth to create that frost you can cool it down in your cup little by little and then take a sip that's how it works dude nice nice oh this coffee is delicious it's like the best coffee in india i actually haven't had any coffee in india so it has to be the best it's the best it's better than chai we needed to walk off that massive south indian breakfast so after that feast of a meal we made our way to bangalore fork so this is the bangalore fort it was built in like around the 1537 and it was built by kempe gowda who's the founder of bangalore so initially it was built as a mud fort and now it's become stone they've made it through stone later and only a small part of the fort actually remains now this is the part that we're gonna go explore today today the fort's deli gate and the two bastions are all that really remains of the fort so it is small but still very interesting to visit one of the great things about the fort is that it's a free attraction typically when we've traveled through india and gone to visit major sites we're usually looking at paying roughly 300 rupees or maybe more but this one is absolutely free my favorite thing about the fort so far is just how impressive the walls are and the doors it's like everywhere you look there's something unique and different about this place it's been a great experience so far and it hasn't been too crowded either there's just a few people out here visiting chai chai thai time before lunch but definitely definitely check out these two attractions they're must visits and they're really close to each other i mean they're five minute walk from each other and then you can get some chai and then you can have some chai and you got some more chai and then maybe lunch we're getting hurricane water the best it's super refreshing it is getting some kind of fiercely hot here in bangladesh and what better way to cool off than with some sugar cane juice freshly made right in front of us let's try that naturally refreshing and actually really sweet too like it's very sugary but man it's just what you need in the heat helps you beat the heat basically we got some special directors if you want to show thanks guys so we're now entering deeper sultan's summer palace yeah it's a good example of indo-islamic architecture and apparently it was built in 1791 so that was a very long time ago let's go check it out this palace was the summer residence of tipu sultan and it's an impressive structure built entirely of teak and adorned with pillars arches and balconies it's super close to the fort and definitely worth visiting if you're traveling in bangalore so after all that sightseeing it was time for lunch we hopped in an uber and drove to shivaji military hotel don't let the name fool you this is in fact a restaurant and is best known for its biryani okay so we've entered into the restaurant and it's packed as a saturday it's a very popular place instead of waiting in a queue you basically stand by a table that you think is going to be finishing soon and then you jump in strategically so as soon as one person gets up you attack the chair there's no time not a second to waste yeah so do what he's doing okay all right so after waiting about 20-25 minutes we found a table we pounced on it we were actually waiting at another table and they notified us and said go guys go and we like ran over and sat down anyways we've got our banana leaves here and what we're going to be doing is cleaning them so we just pour a little bit on a bit of water on our hands and i just go like this on the banana leaf and what this does is it cleans the leaf hopefully i did an okay job now we're just waiting thank you now we're just waiting for the food so before we start eating let me give you a tour of everything that was served on the banana leaf we had a nice mix of biryani as well as different curries all varying in their level of spice here you'll notice liver chicken dry mun dry green chili chicken a cucumber yogurt salad mud and biryani chicken biryani and ghee rice which is cooked in clarified butter now let's dig in wow what a feast we have here this is probably my favorite southern indian lunch of all time look at this i mean we're eating it on top of banana leaf we're eating with our hands that is a traditional way here in southern india so the way you do it is you just grab one start breaking up mix it with the brianna and then you put it like this and you go like that with your thumb right so i'm gonna go with my favorite thing of all time which is mud and brianni oh wow huge sauce of butter so tender i'm just blown away by this i'm so excited it's going to be a south indian feast on a banana leaf and we have eight different items if you can believe it all right i'm gonna take some chicken here oh look at that mixing it all together oh wonderful buttery chicken with masala just absolutely delicious and then this rice with ghee oh my gosh that's game changing okay pouring the gravy on here oh my gosh so now it's taking on a green color okay let's try this i love biryani oh wow that's a bit spicier than i expected just wasn't anticipating that taste wow it's really tasty i do like it i do like it chili chicken oh yeah i feel that kick but it's very tender chicken delicious so basically you mix everything with rice whatever the gravy you mix it with rice okay and chili chicken you can just have it on the side and that's a way of ensuring that you get the gravy gets absorbed absorbed and utilized in the meal and you have some flavor in the rice as well oh i'm yeah i'm not oh man i'm not a fan of liver sorry guys that'll be my last bite of that i do like the other ones the chicken has been delicious so far this is just a wonderful meal and with all this variety it's like you don't
