Rubeera Palace, a unit of Sri Pavana Keerti Hotels India Pvt. Ltd. situated on the fifth floor of MPM Millennium Wajihuddin Estate, in Himayat Nagar, is an out and out vegetarian restaurant. As you step into the restaurant, on to the one side, you are greeted by elephant-headed god, Lord Ganesha, the remover of obstacles.

The ambience of the place is medium with no sharp lights and divided into three sections, so that any group big or small can have their own privacy. Approximately, it can seat 60 people. An ideal place for small gatherings and kitty parties. I took a place to the side, so that there is not much disturbance. Running an eye through the Menu Card, one noticed that it was more of a North Indian and Chinese cuisine on the platter.

Starting the luncheon with soup, there was Hot and Sour Veg Soup, a mix of chopped vegetable celery black pepper and vegetable stock cooked in dark soya vinegar and sauce. Other choices in the soup included Sweet Corn Veg Soup, Man Chow Veg Soup, Wanton Veg Soup, Choice of Cream Soup and Veg Clear Soup. My attention was drawn to the Mulligatawny Veg Soup, which was lentil flavoured soup served with veg crispies and rice, but I settled for the Lemon Coriander Soup, the thin Chinese soup based on corn flour, lemon and coriander leaves served hot with garnished lemon and curry leaf. Indeed, it was really yummy, which was relished with starter Gobi 65, a South Indian style batter fried Gobi with Indian spices served with red chutney.

Among choices there was Crispy Fried Corn Kernels, an American corn battered and fried spiced with Chinese spices tossed with soya sauce served with chilly and vinegar and hot chilli sauce, the Veg Figure Schezwan- mix vegetable minced with Schezwan Chinese spices battered and fried with finger deep fat and served hot with sauce or hot garlic sauce, a choice for those who love hot spicy food.

Other regular starters include Paneery Chilly, Golden Fried Baby Corn, Vegetable salt n pepper, Veg Manchurian, Stir fried spinach and baby corn. Of course one could also have Veg Dumpling in hot garlic sauce or Baby corn or Mushroom in soya sauce or any of the paneer choices.

Some main course cuisines had typical local names like the Nizami Handi, which was mixed vegetables, chopped palak and grated paneer cooked with Indian spices and served hot. The other hot names on the list were Mix Veg Kheema Lababdar, a mix vegetable in rich onion tomato gravy with cream butter served with dry fruit, and the other was Veg Kheema Kasthuri – mix vegetable cooked with onion and tomato gravy with spices of Kasthuri methi and Indian spicy masala with grated paneer. However, the choice fell on Methi Mutter Malai – fresh chopped methi cooked in rich white gravy with butter and cream till creamy and glossy topped with dry methi powder and served hot.

In the Dal section, there was Dal Fry, Yellow Dal Tadka, Dal Makhni, a must in any restaurant because it is accepted by the guests. But two other dal, one could try out was Channa Dal Palak – Channa dal soaked and cooked with Indian spices with chopped palak spiced with chilli tadka and flavoured with ghee and the other was Panjabi Dal Fry – a moderately spiced tasty and flavoured North Indian dal.

Explaining about Karampodi, Shyam said it has a rich history and a unique recipe for Telugus. “Karampodi was developed in an era when the luxury of vegetables was not available all throughout the year.  Karampodi probably must have been created not just to add taste but also to add nutrients to the humble rice,” Shyam said.

Some of the signature main course traditional dishes include Bommadiyalu Pulusu, Ragi Sankranti with Natukodi Pulusu and Bhaagmathi masala pappu. The Pappus, include Mudda, Palakoor, Gongura, Tomato pappu, Dal Tadka and Dal Fry.

There are many signature starters as well.

The chicken starters include Taramati Kodi, Pandu Mirchi Kodi, Kodi Vepudu, Kodi Fries, Kodi Pakoda, Kothimira Kodi, Kobbari Kodi, Karivepaku Kodi, Miriyala Kodi, and Karampodi Kodi.

Shyam says that to savour and enjoy lip-smacking cuisine, use your hands and not cutlery. Sharing their plans, Shyam said: “We plan to develop Karampodi into a chain and then would like to take it all over Telugu States and the country. Our vision is to develop Karampodi into a formidable food chain that would have at-least one outlet in every district headquarters in both the Telugu states in next five years.” He said plans are on to open two restaurants, one each at Kukatpally and Dilsukhnagar and one outlet each in Vijayawada and Vishakhapatnam.
