There are many cuisines that you can dine and enjoy in Bengaluru but the best way to experience the local life & food of the city is by interacting with locals and having interesting conversations over authentic and regional food.

Meet Suma and Soumya, who invite you to their 80-year old ancestral home in Basavanagudi, Bengaluru, where you will get to experience and enjoy a hidden culinary treasure of India - Karunadu Oota. 'Karu' means black while 'Nadu' translates to region, and 'Oota' translates to meal. It is the regional cuisine of Karnataka where dishes are prepared using the grains and pulses that are grown in the black soil of the region. It is a cherished cuisine among Bangaloreans and the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law duo are preparing a lovely meal and also inviting you into their kitchen to try your hand at making these simple dishes, boasting of robust flavours.

The whole experience can last about 2-4 hours.

My husband and I had a wonderful time...

My husband and I had a wonderful time with Soumya and her family. We enjoyed preparing a South Indian meal together while learning about the culture. Soumya gave us a tour of the home and explained the uses for the different room including the purpose behind their architectural design. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Bangalore and looking to get a true experience of the culture. The food was delicious and I can't wait to make some Roti at home.
