I am hooked to Poorna Tiffins. For the last couple of years (more?) I have been going almost every Sunday morning (and sometimes mid week evenings too) religiously to this small little joint in Krishnanagar, Hyderabad to eat what I think are the world's best idlis.
I have also intoduced countless friends and family to the place and most of them are quite amazed at the quality of the idlis.
My brothers are convinced that one of the reasons I took up my current job at Grene and the secret reason I am involved with Nephroplus is that they are both quite close in distance to Poorna Tiffins!
The problem with Poorna Tiffins is if I don't get my weekly quota of heaven in the form of ghee-soaked idlis, my week does not go well. Really. I feel listless, incomplete, like something is missing, like I have not had a shower.
Now, the guys at Poorna Tiffins have this habit of going off on annual jaunts unannounced. So every once in a way, when I drive all the way to Krishnanagar, all excited at the thought of gorging on those idlis, to my utter shock and horror, I find the joint closed. How can an eatery close ever? This is the only eatery I know that actually closes.
Sure enough, this happened this Sunday too. On enquiring with the neghbours, I was told 'oorki vellaru andharu' (they have all gone to their native place)!
The Jain Paryushan Parva begins this Saturday which is a time of general penance and fasting during which we don't eat out. So, I thought in case Poorna Tiffins had opened (it had been more than 5 days since the unsuccessful visit), I could make up for the lost Sunday and make sure I have a peaceful Paryushan Parva, not troubled by dreaming about idlis. No luck. The shutters were open but apparently they were going to take up some renovation work. So, no idlis for 2-3 days more, they said.
Drat! That means no idlis for me until the end of Paryushan Parva (next Saturday). So, I can now go only next Sunday.
