Khana Khazana

A Gem Tucked in the Bylane

This review is also available on burrp!
Once upon a time, one of my friends had shown this place to me and said some good things about the food they make as well. Last week, both of us bored to the core, wanting to eat something yummy and delicious, decided to consciously bump into this place.

It’s a small place run by the husband and the wife in the portico of their house. There’s a kitchen area, bill counter, a wash basin in a corner and 7 tables neatly arranged for the customer’s perusal. Each table had 2 kinds of pickle, salt and sugar.

They mainly make different kindsa parantha, the subzis, lassi and meal. The list of paranthas was huge. Alu, gobi, paneer, methi, plain, laccha, ajwain and many more! There was masala and sweet / salt lassi. The dry subzi and gravies are too many to pen. They also had the meal option. Each meal costs Rs.55/- and the paranthas at Rs.12 each and the gravies start from Rs.40/- One could opt for the half plate gravy too.

My friend ordered chapathis with alu gobi and I opted for gobi parantha. Believe me, both tasted great! Later I could not give way to my sweet tooth and had a sweet lassi too. And it made my day :)
Being a pukka south Indian, my friend ordered half plate rice and curd - for many meal isn’t complete without the sumptuous curd rice with piclkle :)
The curd they serve is thick and makes you want more of it.
We were about to finish and a request from another friend made us parcel gobi parantha and alu parantha.

All this together cost us Rs.102/- only! Each bite is worth the money you pay and one would never regret to have gone there.
Please don’t expect a great ambience but a very hygienic food! They serve in steel plates and the service is quick. The waiters and the cook are all women. One would feel, it’s as good as food cooked at home.

Highly recommended for northies who are missing home food and ofcourse for southies who love home made north Indian food!
