4th Cross Road, RPC Layout, Vijayanagar, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560104, India
While heading toward Vijayanagar from the Deeplanjali Nagar Bus stop, one has to take the right turn just before the Attiguppe bus stop and head straight till one spots the Hampi Nagar bus depot to the left of the road. A little ahead (about 10m), to the left of the road, after the Hopcoms store stands Shivaraj's Bhajji Cart.
Serving fresh hot Bhajjis under the roof of a blue, four wheeled cart on the RPC Layout street-side, the vendor Mr Shivaraj has a light hearted chat with every customer of his. He hails from the south Karnataka town of Maddhur, and he has been making Bhajjis in the same place for 4 years now. The many kinds of Bhajjis he sells include Mirchi Bhajji, Raw banana bhajji, Alu Bonda, capsicum bhajji, Ambode, Uddin Vade (Vada made of Urad Dal) and so on. He serves the Bhajjis of our choice with a mixture of grated carrot and onion, and Pudina chutney.
- The Bhajjis are made fresh and hot, so one is advised to be prepared to wait till the order is catered to. I promise that the Bhajjis are worth the wait.
- The wait time can be spent talking to Mr Shivaraj, who can chat up to anyone that visits him for Bhajjis, or just for a warm chat.
Timing: 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM
