Amdavaadi – Gujarati Snack house

2 Mar

The Gujarati snack house, Amdavaadi, in T Nagar is just two months old.  Having read about it in CFG and seeing an ad in The Hindu, we were tempted to hit the place & try out.

Writing this post along with SR & RR – and yes, we 3 decided to raid the place today ūüėČ

So here goes a post on it. ¬†The Snack House (not sure why they don’t use the term Restaurant…but snack house does seem to fit as well) is located behind away from the main road giving it a slightly away from maddening noisy road feel ūüôā

Well lit and no fancy chairs / sofas et al.  Decor is kept simple and neat.  Seated ourselves and eagerly scanned the menu.

Ordered ourselves Rajwadi Chas and Lime & Ginger Cooler. ¬†Both drinks were nice and Rajwadi Chas – was a good choice — it had slightly stronger dose of Asafoetida with Curry leaves, coriander et al. ¬†If you are not a big fan of Asafoetida smell/taste, you might want to skip this or taste it before getting yourself a full glass ūüôā

Starter Palette

Fafda with Kadi Chutney & Raw Papaya Salad

Fafda is a Besan based crispy item Рgood thing to snack on.  Combining this with Kadi chutney & raw papaya salad, gave a good taste.  And yes, I quite liked it!

One of those most favourite items of mine – Jalebiiiiiiiiiiiii

jalebi

Jalebi was mild warm (not too hot types) and yummmmmmmmm! ūüôā ¬†They have added a dash of Saffron to this and one could taste the saffron. ¬†It was crisp & yum! ¬†[Still drooling…and craving to eat another plate ;)]

Manager of the snack house helped us choose as well and he suggested to go with Samosa — oh yea! ¬†He did mention that it is a regular item that you get but try ours and won’t be disappointed! ¬†So there goes our next starter – Samosa!

Smaller in size yet yummy in taste!  Samosa was hot and tasted good.  Internal stuffing seemingly had kasuri methi & a pinch of mint leaves.  True though a regular item, this was definitely good.

While munching on the starters & sipping our drinks, we ordered ourselves “Methi Thepla with Oondiya” — this again was good.

We didn’t find too spicy stuffs…gave us a feel of Home made food – with right amount of spices. ¬†By the end, we were full but not heavy!

Snack items about 3-4 could easily fill you up…so watch out your appetite before ordering main course ūüôā

Overall, we liked the place.  Service was also fast.  Food was good.
