Manjula’s Meals

 

Manjula’s cooking has become world famous! ūüėČ

We love sharing meals with our guests (it’s the nature of our open house) and often Manjula will provide¬†cookery lessons and demonstrations. After many requests we’ve now started posting recipes and begin here with two simple examples.

Recipe One Ragi Soup

Recipe Two Dhal

Future recipes will include: Roti, Soda Bread, a range of delicious Bhaji, pressure cooker cooking and more…

Do come and join us for dinner.

If you have any questions about any of the recipes or any special requests do write to Manjula and Stephen at tours@mycycle.co

So, what is there to do in Mysore?

How long to stay?
We are asked so often that we thought we’d show what visitors have experienced and thought after staying here.
Our current guests are an English family living in France with mum and dad and two pre teen children. It goes without saying they are a lovely group, gang, team….. They ARE staying here ūüėČ ¬†ALL our guests are great.

They have been here three nights and have covered the following:

Walk up Chamundi Hill followed by dinner in one of our favourite roof-top restaurants Hotel Roopa.

Next day after breakfast at our place, Vasanth in his auto rickshaw took them to the Silk Mill, followed by the Maharaja’s Palace and then the idiosyncratic art gallery at Jaganmohan Palace. Royal Mysore Walks provided a walking tour to introduce the city, market and street food. Dinner was veg Indian feast prepared by Manjula.

On the third day, it was equally packed. Pancakes for breakfast. A MYcycle tour of Srirangapatmam that lasted most of the day followed by late lunch at the riverside restaurant. Vasanth then helped them sort out their bus tickets to travel on to north Kerala on the fourth day.

Their verdict? We’ll let them speak for themselves.

To us, it has reinforced one key fact. They’ve had a wonderful time and managed to fit a lot in during their stay. As with most of our guests they wish to stay longer. Once people spend time here and realise it’s a lovely easy-going accessible city with year-round great weather and much more to do than they first thought, they all feel that. If it was possible to stay (it isn’t) our family might fit in another trip to the island, see some of the local artisans, art museum, sand sculptures, more of the countryside and even do a bit of shopping.

Please note: you can find more details of the¬†highlights listed above in our page of ‘things to do in and around Mysore.’

POSTCARDS

We often have requests from guests for postcards to send to family and friends or as a souvenir of their visit. We know its bit retro but eh….we’re therefore planning to publish a small selection for future guests.

Check the photos we’ve posted on flickr (click the link at the word POSTCARDS) and tell us which you’d like to see as a postcard. Select the top three and send the relevant letters (they are labelled A onwards) to tours@mycycle.co The overall preferred images will be published.

In addition if you have favourite photos or would like to see postcards of specific places in and around Mysore tell us and we’ll go out on a photo shoot.
