Dinner at Murugan Idli Shop Krishnagiri

There are many hotels in Krishnagiri in that the Murugan Idli Shop may be the best one for the family dining.

When I first visited the Murugan Idli Shop in Krishnagiri, I became fan of their food, especially the idlis. Their “podi idli” was another favorite. I became so fond of the idli shop that I visited again with my colleagues. However, in my third visit, I was slightly disappointed.

There seems to be two prominent hotels in Krishnagiri, the Sri Saravana Bhavan and the Murugan Idli Shop. I am regular to these two whenever I travel in the Bangalore Salem Highway.

We were on our Navagraha Temple Tour and started from Bangalore at around 5 pm. In two and half hours, we hit the Murugan Idli Shop for our dinner.

Our order was, of course, idli’s and dosas. The idli was a bit hard and I think the cook messed up with the batter. Even the three varieties of chutney did not compliment the idli well. It was not something that I expected from a restaurant with great reputation. I travelled from Bengaluru and chose this idli shop instead of Sri Saravana Bhavan that was few kilometers away.

YouTube has idli recipe!

Preparing a soft idli is not rocket science. Any smaller idli shops can accomplish this and YouTube has all the secrets if the cook forgets. I think the cook messed up with the batter. Did he know that I was going there?

However, I am still positive about this restaurant because my food experience was good during the first two visits. I will certainly refer others to go there and try out their signature dish, idli. The ghee dosa and the Paneer dosa were good though.

The Murugan Idli Shop is a big restaurant

The Murugan Idli Shop is not a small but a vast property in the Bangalore Salem highway situated near Krishnagiri. The building is huge and has ample parking space for more than 50 cars. The dining ambience is perfect for a family and is the best place to relieve and refresh.

The staffs in the idli shop are good and will get your orders in less than 10 minutes. There is a small outlet outside the restaurant dedicated for ice creams and a special drink called “Jigarthanda.” Try this here.

That is all for today. Hope you have a great time travelling. Always ensure bookings in advance.
