Jyothi Prakash Stores is one of the pocket friendly chats shop in Basavanagudi. This is the first corner shop in DVG Road if you are coming from North Road. This shop is well known for the people who studied in National High School and College. Being an Ex Student of National College, I been here at least 100 times and adore the chats they serve. They start serving the chats like Masala Puri, Pani Puri and Bhel Puri by 11am in the morning and this place is constantly jam-packed with students.
In my recent visits I noticed so many people had come along with their kids and memorizing there college days and remembering the time spent @ Jyothi Prakash with owner.
This shop firstly started by Mr. Ramesh Bhat (Kannada Actor/Director) later taken by someone else. Prices of the chats are reasonable and Pocket Friendly compare to other joints in this locality. One must try their Sev Puri which is just astonishing with lot of “Chow Chow or Sev” on top of it. Pani Puri is one of my favorite dishes and tastes splendid here with chopped onions & carrot along with Sev in small puri’s which is served with Pani (Tamarind water with lot of Indian Spices).
Another cherished and very famous drink is “Grape Juice” trust me there are so many joints/restaurants to drink grape juice in the town. But this place is unique among them and no words to express the taste of it. You will enjoy each and every sip of it. I started drinking this from a Decade and Price of it was four rupees and now it’s fifteen. Now also whenever I pass near Jyothi Prakash, will stop and drink one or two glasses of grape juice and continue.
I strongly recommend this place for Sev Puri and Grape Juice!!
