Subbammana angadi (means shop in Kannada) is an iconic landmark in Gandhi Bazar, Basavanagudi. The official name of the place is something else, no one ever refers to it by its official name, its always Subbammana Angadi (Subbamma's shop).
This place is a treasure trove when it comes to South Indian traditional eatables. Be it holige, obbattu, sanDige, koDbaLe,etc or festival specials like sakkare acchu, antina unDe, etc, this is the place!
I started going to this place a couple of years back when we started trekking seriously, the holige is an excellent eatable to carry on a trek, it is tasty, has good calories content and is not messy, and when it is from this place, it becomes a favorite among the gang. There are several varieties of hoLige, the first classification is based on the filling/stuffing, jaggery/gram (hurNa), coconut (obbattu) and sugar (sakkre hoLige). For each of these varieties you get different levels of sweetness, very sweet and normal. The very sweet one is the way to go! This has more stuffing and hence is tastier...
Another thing that is very good there is the khara stuff like chakkli, koDbaLe, etc. All kinds of pickles are also available, powders that go with rice etc are popular. This place is full of people who are getting kgs of stuff packed for the US, etc.
Chutney puDi is available in several varieties and the sweet one is simply out of this world!
Sandige of all kinds are available, and are pretty good.
All in all, it is an excellent place to check out if you have not seen it already...be warned that its more of a place where you can buy lots of traditional good-to-eat stuff/condiments rather than a restaurant kind of place.
Location: HB Samaja road, Near Gandhi Bazar circle, Basavanagudi

Do the shop owners send items to USA if we ask them?ReplyDelete
Sending to US might be a little expensive but we can still send it. Please let me know if you need it. You can reach me at email@example.comDelete
Mr.Sham, please say that you can do the service. The shop owners nor its workers provide any courier service. So please modify your comment to I can pick it up from the shop and courier instead of we can!!Delete

As Krishna said, it is called Subbammana Angadi. It's real name is Srinivasa Condiments, but, nobody calls or recognises that name. Once you say Subbammana Angadi, people react, Oh, ada, gothu, a very famous place for south indian food stuff. Rasam Powder, Sambar Powder, anything, you name it, they have it. Bisi Bele Bhath powder is really very very tasty. One cannot miss that at all.ReplyDelete
This is for Pavithra, they dont send items to US as far as I know. Banashankari people, really do that. They dont charge exhorbitantly also. Fairly priced, i think you can try.
