Needless to say, the place is always crowded. Shahul Hameed started off as a hotel worker after basic education. Later he developed a longing to launch something of his own. He started off with a single item in a small outlet adjacent to his house at Karakkamandapam. As it found success, he took in workers and extended into several items like pathiri, oratti, chappathi etc. For the past few years his Travancore Foods supplies to public functions and family gatherings at Thiruvanathapuram and nearby areas.

Shahul Hameed and Jasmine say they use the best raw material available in the market. However, they would not share the secret formula that makes their food so delicious. 

In the midst of such busy schedule, Shahul Hameed also attends to his work as secretary of the Vellayani Shantivila Kuruvani Juma Masjid. So, if you are in Karakkamandapam, do check this place out.
