The menu was exhaustive with items that reminded me of my hometown...We started with the mutton bone soup. The soup was fiery red hot and if you are not used to hot spicy food this is not the place for you!

This weekend we were wondering if we could explore a new eating joint without venturing too far and getting hassled by our Bengaluru Traffic. So when we searched on the web for good restaurants close to our house, Earthen Delicacies popped up. We have always driven past this one and never bothered to check it out till date. The rating and reviews seemed good. So we said let's try it for our dinner out today..
The restaurant's interior is an enthusiastic attempt to create an earthy concept ambience. By using a collage of exposed bricks, terracotta jallis , murals and yellow lighting a somewhat earthy ambience is achieved. Maybe a little mature handling of materials and the space could have done wonders for the concept restaurant. But for the general public this still works!
The cusine on menu was quite exhaustive with Mughal, Punjabi, Chinese and many more north Indian dishes to choose from. The menu card itself was very tastefully done.

We ordered crispy chilli chicken and babycorn Manchurian for starters. They were served in interesting wooden plates that looked like sections of a log. The starters were good. We followed them with egg fried rice, butter Naan and butter chicken. The quantity and rates were reasonable and so was the taste. The service was also surprisingly quick for a weekend and the waiter was very courteous. We ended with a chill lemonade. Happy to have discovered a reasonably good restaurant nearby.

The Thinnai is a covered platform or verandah in front of traditional houses. Most people spend their day at the thinnai. Cooking , sleeping, chitchatting with neighbors and relatives also happen in this verandah...
I was inspired by a photograph in a local newspaper. The grandma is cooking at the background while her granddaughter is studying with her laptop (given to government school kids by the Tamil Nadu chief minister's education program).
