Review: Simple and Tasty, the Breakfast at Indira Canteen Is Definitely Worth a Try!

An initiative by Karnataka government aimed towards catering the poor, the food at these canteens are not just for the underprivileged.

A plate of warm breakfast for just ₹5 and a happy tummy!

That’s how my day began this morning, thanks to a newly-opened Indira canteen in my neighbourhood.

An initiative by Karnataka government to provide affordable food for the poor, the food at these subsidised canteens isn’t meant only for the underprivileged.

The Indira Canteen.

Inaugurated on Wednesday, the canteen premises had a long queue waiting patiently for their turn to have breakfast worth five bucks!

Joining the throngs of auto drivers, construction labourers, municipality workers and tiny tots with their parents, the anticipation in me went a notch higher with each step I took towards the serving counter.

Inside the canteen.

And I was not disappointed at all!

With piping hot rava khichidi and a dollop of pickle, breakfast couldn’t have been any simpler, and tasty too!

Not just for the poor!

Though many would consider the initiative a ploy to instil a pro-government feeling among people , the fact that many who couldn’t even afford to buy a meal would no longer have to go hungry is heartening enough.

While this trip to Indira canteen is definitely not going to be my last, you should also try the breakfast and meals in the canteen nearest to you and find out for yourself!
