 A little nook near Shilparamam is making protein the main ingredient of its breakfast recipes

RELATED POST

With immunity in every community as the motto, this nook opposite Shilparamam is dishing out healthy, protein-rich and affordable food for the Hyderabadis. Started in late March, Immunity Ingredient Tiffins or IIT Elite for short, is run by a mother-son duo – Ganji Shiva Parvati and Vijay Kumar. It boasts of a wide tiffin menu made of millets. Their specialty is adding proteins, so along with the regular coconut, tomato and ginger chutney comes the soya chunk curry, known to be the purest form of protein for vegetarians.

Vijay recalls their time selling idlis and dosas on the roadside at Machavaram in Andhra Pradesh when he was a teenager. Currently pursuing MTech at IISC Bengaluru, Vijay has started this place with the idea of introducing healthy food to people. “We have had millet dosas in other places in Hyderabad and it tasted ridiculous. We knew we could cook a far better fare and thus started IIT Elite,” says Vijay.

The bestseller
While they also have the regular urad dal idli and dosa (so that customers can compare the taste with the millet version), their main menu comprises of Millet Idli, Millet Vada, Millet Dosa and more. Their best seller is the IIT Special Non-Veg Millet Dosa (Rs 99). It comes loaded with shredded chicken breast (has more protein than regular chicken) and eggs besides the usual chutneys and Soya Chunks curry.

In the millet varieties, they add fresh grated veggies such as beetroot and carrot. Mom Parvati swears by the Carrot Ragi Dosa version she makes. “We also give Ragi Java complimentary for our customers and we hope they will start patronizing this tasty and healthy drink like coffee and tea," says Vijay.

Pricing factor Vijay says that they started their own delivery service to be able to keep their pricing low instead of tying up with food delivery apps. A plate of three idlis costs Rs 39, the lowest in the city, he says.
For first-timers visiting the eatery, he suggests Dibba Rotti Panakam, made of five kinds of millet. Ragi Malt introduced in April seems to be their bestseller. Most fitness enthusiasts who work out in the vicinity flock to this place to trade their morning coffee for their share of this iron, calcium, zinc, fibre and protein-rich drink.
