Cookaroo is an innovative food-delivery startup which operates on partner-kitchens model. They use the kitchen space of partnered hotels to prepare food. The daily changing menu repeats after a couple of weeks. The menu contains Indian, Chinese, Thai and Continental (at selected locations) dishes.


A long menu is a nightmare for any foodie, and Cookaroo has tackled this with an efficient short menu. One fine day, we were all set to taste their recipes. We started off with Alfredo White Sauce Pasta which had Rich and Creamy texture! The melting Cheese gave great flavours. The addition of Capsicum, Mushroom and Baby Corn made

We started with Alfredo White Sauce Pasta with garlic bread which had Rich and Creamy texture. The melting Cheese gave great flavours. The addition of Capsicum, Mushroom and Baby Corn made it even more delicious.


Paneer Masala with Phulka was a perfect combination. Cubes of Fresh cottage cheese with spices made it just right to eat. The curry is light and packs good flavours. Phulka is something they’ve figured out, it’s soft and fried well.


Chicken Fried Rice with Chili Garlic Sauce is one of my favourites. I had tried it from a Chinese restaurant and every other place didn’t quite live up my expectation. Cookaroo was a new try for me, being worried I took my first bite and it was amazing. They have got the taste right on.


Non-Veg Combo packs in huge portions. The chilli chicken was on point with the spice, a treat to the tastebuds! Chicken Gravy made the entire dish a delight, less oil, tender pieces of chicken and right flavours. Dhal makhani was light and ends the meal perfectly. Phulka was soft even after a long duration.


Packaging plays a crucial role, especially in a food-delivery startup. Cookaroo uses the high-grade containers, convenient and keeps the food warm for a long time. While all dishes were packed in easy containers with a removable covering, the meal was packed with spill-proof cover to hold it together.

The Great Indian Thali – 10th FBAB Meetup!

For those people who say vegetarian food is boring, must visit The Great Indian thali located on the 3rd floor of Lotus building at Kormangala. One of the best restaurants that serves authentic Indian Thali. Simple and elegant in ambiance with subtly lit lamps that creates a dramatic environment.

As invitees for #10thFBABMeetup, we visited TGIT. We were about 20 and had a large table reserved for us.

Welcome drink was Watermelon juice which was sweet and tasty. Starters were, Paneer Pancharatan Tikka – It wasn’t great but yes it tasted good. Paneer was a bit hard.

Mint aloo kebab – it was medium level spiced and tasty. Mutter kachori – miniature version of real kachori served with different types of chutneys. Tasted yumm. Golgappa – it was served with sweet and mint pani. One of the best golgappa ever had.

and Dahi Papdi Chat –  Papdi being dipped in different chutneys and topped with various spices, dahi and grated beetroot, carrot and pomegranate. Thumbs up for this chat.

Then, came the BIG PICTURE 😛 , the most awaited thali. Main course was started with Batura and Punjabi Chole. It tasted really great. Batura was soft and big enough that it just fills up the tummy. Fulka and roti was other varieties of breads served. As a combination for these, Dum aloo, Vegetable korma, Kadai paneer were served. They also had a dish made out of bitter guard ,forgot the name, but it tasted amazing. First ever time we liked a bitter guard recipe.  Then, Veg Biriyani with Raita, Steamed rice and Dal makhani were served and wrapped up the main course with simple curd rice.

Any meal isn’t complete without desserts. So, Gulab Jamoon, Moong Dal Tamatar Halwa and Rasgulla were served. To add up to this, Shrikhand was also served.

Each recipe had it’s unique taste. Our taste buds craved for more food but tummy was out of space 😛 Indeed, we had a great time at TGIT with other foodie friends.

Service was little messed up because we were too many in count, each time the server had to ask us and then serve it on the plate. But they tried their  best is what we have to say. Kudos to the organizers of #FBAB!

Must try – Golgappa, Papdi Chat, Dum Aloo, Vegetable Korma, Batura, Shrikhand.

Mavalli Tiffin Room

We used to visit Lalbhag only because we could dine at the MTR. And those days are gone as a new MTR outlet has opened in Malleshwaram. It’s located near Sampige Theatre, as a part of the Basil Restaurant building. It took us a while to find the place and once we found, we noticed the entry to the restaurant isn’t that welcoming.

So nonetheless we ordered Rava Idli and Onion Dosa which are served with coconut chutney and veg curry

and continued  with Badam Halwa and Fruity Fusion for desserts.

Must Try – Masala Dosa and Fruity Fusion.

Downsides – The prices are bit off, they don’t go along with the quantity served.  The staff always seem to be occupied in other orders and won’t pay full attention, and some of them don’t know what are the desserts available.

Each recipe had unique taste and is served with a small cup of ghee to enjoy the hot dish. We couldn’t try their special dish, which is Sunday-only. Neither was the Mangalore Buns nor Bonda Soup available. The ambience is well maintained and the interior of the restaurant has been painted with a combination of white and bright red color. We think the best place to sit down is right behind the dessert section because there’s natural light and less crowded compared to other places. We shall surely be back for more Fruity Fusion and Badam Halwa!
