Mouth-watering vegetarian foodFood lovers of the twin cities are enjoying vegetarian dishes like never before. And the sprouting vegetarian restaurants across the length and breadth of the city are a testimony to this fact. One more addition to the list of restaurants is Chutneys which has opened in Banjara Hills.

A sister concern of The Hub restaurant, Punjagutta, the vegetarian restaurant has been started, keeping in mind those people who eat only vegetarian dishes and do not like the company of non-vegetarians. "We have opened this restaurant after getting the feedback from the customers. Many of the customers feel uncomfortable with non-vegetarian dishes served along with the vegetarian dishes. So we felt the need for a pure vegetarian restaurant to satisfy the needs of veggies", says Chutney's General Manager R Radhakrishna Murthy.

A vegetarian dishThe menu offers a wide variety of choice for the customer. It has tiffin items, and a variety of North Indian, Chinese and South Indian delicacies. Some of the tiffin items are unique and are made with a lot of care and hard work. For instance, Baabai hotel idli is the famous baabai hotel idli of Vijayawada with lots of pure ghee poured on idlis and served with karam (chilli powder) and chutney. Whereas steamed dosa is a traditional south Indian dosa, steam cooked in Japanese style. "The steamed dosa is a favorite of cine star Chiranjeevi. It is prepared exactly the same way as Chiranjeevi would have liked it. Preparation without any oil - preparation without any parallel" says Radhakrishna Murthy. Apart from this, there is a wide variety of vegetarian delicacies that would make a vegetarian happy. In the uttappams section, you have mango uttappams - a uttappam topped Steamed dosawith spicy pickled mango, four uttappams consisting of mango uttappam, onion uttappam, pudina uttappam, and karam uttappam For those who like Chinese, the restaurant has crispy vegetable, vegetarian gold coin, gobi manchurian, chilly mushroom, pepper mushroom, baby corn manchurian, Chinese chopsuey and veg fried rice. Apart from this, there are desserts like khubani ka meetha, soups, biryanis and South Indian and North Indian thali costing Rs 60 and Rs 85 respectively. If you do not want to try something new then you can go for regular items like vada, upma, Mysore bajji and dahi vada.

Chutneys on Banjara HillsWith a wide variety of dishes, that too for vegetarians, this restaurant seems to be getting good response from the visitors. "The response shown by the people is quite enthusiastic. They are enjoying our food. And we are providing quality hygienic food made with best raw materials. The service is personalised, where a customer is looked after like a real guest," says Radhakrishna Murthy. But what is the need to open a restaurant in less than a mile from 'The Hub' restaurant? "We feel this area has a lot of potential for a vegetarian restaurant". The Hub, Chutneys what next? "We would like to open three to four restaurants in the city," says Mr Murthy.

The right ambienceThe ambiance in Chutneys is pleasant and calm. The lighting, mural paintings and the wooden ceiling have given this restaurant a plush look. There is ample parking facility for both two wheelers and four wheelers.
