Idliwale, Baner, opposite Amar Paradigm/Xoriant building
I had been meaning to visit Idliwale for a while now,ever since I read Aniruddha Patil review on the same. Idliwale has a simple short menu with multiple combos of Idlis. The place is also tiny with standing room only.
We tried the Idli Sambar+chutney, Idli+Meatballs and Idli+Chicken.
The sambar was flavorful,with plenty of veggies. The chutney was more of a peanut chutney , and could have been better. Apparently they had run out of their regular chutney at 11 am. (i prefer coconut)
The Idli with Chicken was absolutely delicious. Chettinad style, with a light coconut base and plenty of chicken pieces, the curry paired well with the soft hot idlis.
The Idli with Meatballs combo was brilliant. Spicy, dark Kundapur masala with soft meatballs, this one was killer. The masala could have easily paired just as well with appams or rice.
Overall, a fantastic meal. I ordered 3 extra idlis and ended the meal with filter coffee. This was definitely enough to serve as a brunch!
Total damages : 476/-, including a bottle of water. This one is worth multiple revisits!
