best for packing food and taking it away

Idli house is a great joint with legacy which has refused to evolve....with 3 tables to sit and no other joints it is simply a great start squandered. around 5 years ago one really struggled for a good variety of Idlis in Mumbai....there weren't any specialists and this place was really great to go to for food.....With advent of malgudi & banana leaf now we have really authentic options to go to....idli house dosent do justice by limiting itself to idlis.....No vadas , no upmas , no idiappams or aapams...just idlis......The idlis no doubt are great....the accompaniments are nice with variety of gun powders, chutneys , sesame oils etc however the sheet cramped nature of the joint dosent help.....Idli house is great if you stay nearby and can hop in your tweeds better still is that you order it home.....however travelling some distance to sample the idlis doesnt really make sense as it dosent seem the effort due to the sheer lack of variety.

Ill eat there if i am around....but surely i need more variety in my breakfast if am eating out.

Excellent variety! Yummy food ! But very congested

Well the food is very nice! Authentic chutneys and sambar is served along with some other accompaniments !
The kanchipuram idli,molga-pudi idli are worth try! Idlis are smooth ,probably one of the best ive had!
the only con is that the place is very small and gets congested pretty much soon!

Idli Heaven !

Heard a LOT about this place and if you are an Idli lover you HAVE to visit this place.

There were many people waiting to get into the restaurant.

Once we got in, I was surprised by the size of the place, it is tiny! I got confused with the mirror on the other side and thought it was of decent size.

Anyhow coming to the idlis, the kanchipuram Idli is a must have! Its spicy and is yellow in color.

The Idli upma was something which I had never heard of it was Yum.

The Khotto Idli is a specialty and comes wrapped in leaves.

Then finally ordered the normal Idli to see how it tastes here, and it was one of the best Idlis I have had in Mumbai.

petu insan khush hua

this place makes the second best idli after petu insan's mom....
never ever experienced so many varieties in idlis...
the unlimited rasam,sambhar,chutney idea works well...especially malgapuri and limrapuri chutney with cocnut oil or palm oil...
the masala idli on fridays and saturdays is just what attracts petu to this place again and again..cost wise petu finds ot paisa wasool
the idli sheera or idli upma is too good....
the best part of this eatery is that it opens early..so petu grabs here a quickie mostly ,in the morning
you can also buy the powder chutneys here ..those are really worth its every penny u spend

Idlis,idlees and eedlees....

You may have notices that I have spelled idlis differently..This is exactly how i would describe the menu of Idli House.Last time when i was in India, I and my brother went to this place.My brother wreaked his idli fetish and ordered masala idli which is available only on tuesdays and fridays.I,on the other hand,was skeptical because i was expecting oil drowned idli dish.But i was surprise and it was a pleasant one..The idli was wrapped in banana or haldi leaf and was yellow..The taste was amazing and it was absolutely sans oil...The sambar is compliementary and can be replaced with rasam. This is the most important part..The cooks knew that sambar and rasam are two distinctly different food items and hence we were not served the thick dal concoction as sambar and the dal ka paani as rasam..Both rasam and sambar were fresh.I have the habit of leaving the coconut chutney untouched when i go to an udipi restaurant because the coconut is not fresh and tastes very sour and stale..But this place was ready to prove me wrong in more than one instances...The chutney turned out to be absolutely fresh...freshly ground on the stone grinder...The ambience resembles a well running Udipi restaurant,but the place promises much more.If you do not find a table you can also have your order standing on a side table..There are varieties of dry chutney that are kept on the table along with sesame and coconut oil..ready to be mixed..they too have a touch of homemade quality..One thing that i would love to mention here was that the waiter removed the banana leaf covering with a sleight of hand,though the place bursting with customers..It pleases me to know that he devoted 10 second of his time for the gesture and gets brownie points for it.We had among 7-8 idli dishes..each different one and washed them down with two filter coffees...the bill was below Rs 100...All in all the best place for college kids,people on the move and office goers..

P.S The normal idli plate serves more than 4 idlis for less than 15 bucks which I find the highlight of this place...

Idli heaven

A visit to the Idli House in Mumbai is a must, both for foodies with an idli fetish and those on a diet.Located in the hustle and bustle of King's Circle, you might just miss this tiny yet welcoming spot, which opened last Dusshera and is always teeming with people.

It serves an amazing variety of idlis, from the plain steamed variety to khottu, mudho and more. A khotu (amusing as it may sound) is an idli tucked into a triangular cup made of jackfruit leaves. As a steaming plate of khottu arrives, the sweet aroma of jackfruit fills the air and you know the delicious, hot idli is waiting inside its special cup. One plate consists of a single khottu. The waiter generously drops dollops of homemade butter on it, making each bite just just melt in your mouth. Try it with some mullagamutti (dried spicy chutney), coconut chutney and sambar. What a feeling! Weight-watchers, do avoid the butter.A mudho is another variation of idli; it comes wrapped in a banana leaf. Like its cousin the khottu, it is a mouthwatering delight. All variations of the simple rice batter preparation -- the now famous idli -- like the rava idli to the sweet, tangy cucumber idli to the spicy masala idli -- are available at Idli House. The service is amazing and accomplices like the generous helpings of coconut chutney, mullagamutti masala and sambhar make it really worth a visit.The ambience is pretty simple. The place has limited seating arrangement -- there are only three granite tables and chairs -- but the service is excellent and the owners personally greet all guests who drop in for a bite.The pricing is very moderate, each variation of the idli costs anywhere between Rs 8 to 16 per plate. So, if you love idli, this is THE place for you.
