Home Delivery in Bangalore | Vardhas | Desi Style

Advertisements

There are multiple restaurants all across Bangalore that serve food from different cuisines. But there are very few that serve the dishes with their authentic flavors. Many small eateries do come up and start on a promising note and lose their way quickly due to various reasons. A dine-in restaurant has the liberty to seek feedback but for a delivery kitchen restaurant, its challenge. But I know of one place that has been successful for past 1.5 yrs, Vardhas. Though my first order was slightly off my expectation since then almost every time, the flavors have been spot-on.

The restaurant serves some of the best South Indian dishes that will remind of a home-cooked meal by our mother. There plenty of dishes on the menu that might make it difficult to choose but whatever is ordered, the quality is the best. I can say this with conviction as I have personally ordered multiple times & tried plenty of dishes, the quality & taste are consistent every time.

South Indian Dishes

It’s going to be hard for me to be able to share info about specific dishes but I will still try describing a few of them.

Idly Sambar Combo

This is one combo that’s a must-order for any idly lover. It comes packaged in a neat box that has 3 fluffed and soft idlis. There is plenty of sambar around the Idly and they also add a dash of ghee to enhance flavors. This for sure is the best and most healthiest dish that’s available throughout the day for an order.

Set Dosa + Onion Tomato Chutney + Coconut Chutney

The base ingredient of getting the right dosa or idly is the batter. And the team of Chefs at Vardhas has perfected the art of making good batter for Idly & Dosa separately. The taste of their set-dosa is amazing and so is the Coconut chutney & Onion Tomato chutney. The flavors are not over the top and just like how one would prepare at home. If needed, one can also order extra chutney or sambar along with the dosa.

Batter – Idly / Dosa / Adai / Masala Vada

Apart from ordering food that’s prepared at Vardhas kitchen, one can also order for the batter and prepare items at home. I have tried 4 varieties of batter and prepared them at home, the taste is the same when prepared at home.

Among the 4 items batters that I have tried, I loved the Masala Vada the most. With a little bit of preparation effort at home, the look and taste came out just like how I find at darshini/small-hotel.

South Meals

They also have an option to order a meal that has all the ingredients it makes it wholesome. It has the Rice, Sambar, Rasam, Kottu (dry-subzi), Gravy subzi, Sweet, Curds. The taste of every dish is awesome. To this one can add other items like Morr Kozhlumbhu, Khara Kozhumbhu, or other varieties of curries. But one can be sure that the flavors would be just like a home-cooked meal.

Onion Pakoda

This is another mouth-watering dish that goes along with evening tea or morning coffee. A very tempting dish that people can’t hold back after eating the first bit.

Mullu Thenkuzhal

Another popular dish that again goes along with hot beverages or even can be munched while doing household chores or sitting leisurely.

North Indian Dishes

We all love to have variety in the menu and North Indian dishes are definitely favorite for many.

Subzi – Paneer Butter Masala, Chole, Rajma, Dal Tadka

These are the basic subzi part of North Indian cuisine. I must say that the taste of every dish was spot on and nothing seemed to be in excess. They seem to use the right quality paneer, gravy is quite thick, seasoning well and packed with flavors. The other dishes like Rajma & Chole subzi are also very good and most importantly well cooked.

I have eaten at least 2 subzi along with Tawa Paratha/Phulka for meals from Vardhas. They are also part of combo that gives options and lets a person ordering depending on mood.

Make your combo

This is the best part of the best part item to be ordered. It comes with 1 dry subzi (default Aloo Palak) and gravy subzi (default Dal Tadka). But then one can choose to unselect the default and choose from the available 4-5 options in the category as part of customization. Apart from this one can also add other items like Rice, Papad, Sweet, Roti & more. I would advise, making the choices quickly as it can get a little confusing as you would feel like ordering everything.

Packaging

This is one of the most essential aspects of food delivery as we all expect the food to stay intact. I noticed that the packaging has always been spot on with no spillage. They do put multiple tapes and seal the boxes well ensure the dish stays intact along with its flavors.

Overall Experience

This is probably one of my favorite places in Bangalore for ordering food online. I can blindly assume that the quality of dishes will be great and they will have a home taste. The past few months I have eaten multiple dishes from Vardhas and its definitely hard for me to pick a favorite. But I can say without a doubt that any dish ordered from the kitchen will make you happy. I urge you to order from Vardhas if you have not yet ordered.
