Khaja Bhai Tiffin Centre, Royapettah:


The most unassuming place sometimes dishes out the most memorable food that lingers on your mind for a long time. My first encounter with this place was when a friend of mine did a takeaway for me once. I was totally blown by what I had and had made up my mind to find out more about it. After 5 months from my first stint, the same friend helped me visit this place.

Tucked inside a small lane, the place was buzzing with customers throngingfor takeaways. There’s only one huge Tawa for making Parottas, so waiting time is more here. But, the wait is absolutely worth for the Soft centered, Crunchy layered Parottas (₹12/pc).

There are endless shops serving Parottas so what’s special here? If that’s the question on your mind, the answer is their Mutton Chops (₹90) the taste of which stayed with me for the 5 months I waited to try this place. Do try their Paaya (₹80) and thank me later. Mutton Chops Gravy is for people like me who like pepper-y note in their Salna and Paaya Gravy is for people who like subtle flavors. Both the gravies are served unlimited with their Parottas. If you want piece then you pay for it.

While waiting for Parottas to get ready it’s a good idea to have Idiyappam (₹20/5pc). It goes well with both their gravies. Veechu Parotta (₹15/pc) is a good option, too. Kalakki (₹15) is a fast seller here.

Totally paid ₹283 which includes repeat order of a few items.
