Many of us knows about Chinese Vegetarian food but not much people knows about Indian Vegetarian foods.

Actually Indian also have vegetarian foods too. Have you wonder how is was created?

During World War II, when rice was in short supply, Yagnanarayana Maiya (MTR 1924’s ancestor) experimented with rava and invented the Rava Idli to keep their families alive. Since then the vegetarian recipe has been passed down from generation to generations.

The cooking medium of almost all the dishes in MTR is ghee. A vendor would procure butter from villages around Bangalore and beyond, and deliver it to the MTR kitchen every day. This would then be cooked to make ghee. Everybody associated with MTR, whether a cook or a server, would proudly insist that it was not just ‘ghee’ but ‘pure ghee’, to highlight the fact that it was unadulterated.

Some of their dishes highlights:

Masala Dosa - Rice & black gram pancakes stuffed with spiced potatoes laced with ghee served with green chutney & sambhar
