Karampodi

Restaurant Karampodi, located at Film Nagar, Jubilee Hills, famous for reviving some of the age-old and forgotten homemade Telugu cuisines recently bagged the Best Restaurant Award in Telangana from the Tourism Department, Govt. of Telangana. Burra Venkatesham, Secretary Tourism, Govt. of Telangana and Pervaram Ramulu, Chairman, Telangana State Tourism Development Corporation, presented the award to the restaurant owners Ajay Ramadi, Shyam Jampala and Kiran Konijeti.

Karampodi is a joint venture of friends Ajay, Raju Vysyaraju, Kiran and Shyam who all worked abroad in diversified fields and relocated to the city. Shyam, a Management graduate from Liverpool John moors University, earlier worked with Satyam and Google, before pursuing his passion in the food industry.

Shyam, whose passion for food has taken him across the globe, said Karampodi is our passionate venture. “Through Karampodi, we are on a journey to revive some of the age-old and forgotten homemade Telugu cuisines,” he said.

Explaining about Karampodi, Shyam said it has a rich history and a unique recipe for Telugus. “Karampodi was developed in an era when the luxury of vegetables was not available all throughout the year.  Karampodi probably must have been created not just to add taste but also to add nutrients to the humble rice,” Shyam said. He adds that some of the Podis (powders) well-known to Telugus are Kotimeera Podi, Mirapakaya Podi, Kakarakaya Karam Podi, Kobbari Karam Podi, Palli Podi and Pudina Podi.

“In this fast-paced living, Karampodi offers a place where one can connect to one’s roots and relive the magic of one’s ancestral homes. We have stretched and entered the traditional Telugu kitchens and now bring to you some special recipes to reignite not just your taste buds, but also fond memories of yesteryears,” informed Shyam. From over 400 grandma recipes, Karampodi has standardised some and trimmed to 199 to offer to its discerning patrons. The restaurant also offers Non-Veg breakfast dishes.

Speaking about experimental Non-Veg Breakfast items, which are not very common, Shyam said that Karampodi promises to make the guests morning special. “The morning will remind about one’s roots, traditions, homes, granny and village. Some of the non-veg breakfasts lined up include Idly, Thatte Idly or Vada or Appam with Natu Kodi Pulusu or Chepala Pulusu; Poori or Dosa with Yata Mamsum Kura or Kodi Kura, Kheema Masala, and the other veg dishes include  Ulavachaaru Idly, Venna Idly, Kakinada Pesarattu, Sreemanthudu Dosa and many more,” he said.

Sharing their plans, Shyam said: “We plan to develop Karampodi into a chain and then would like to take it all over Telugu States and the country. Our vision is to develop Karampodi into a formidable food chain that would have at-least one outlet in every district headquarters in both the Telugu states in next five years.” He said plans are on to open two restaurants, one each at Kukatpally and Dilsukhnagar and one outlet each in Vijayawada and Vishakhapatnam.
