What comes to your mind when you say South Indian food? Easy, light, comfort food, reasonably priced, a relatively healthy meal, quick? All these things perhaps… may be more. You may be someone who loves his butter naan and chicken tikka masala or the tandoori roti and the rich and buttery maa ki dal.
However, there ain’t no foodie ever, who has escaped the craving for South Indian food. But as simple as a meal of idli, vada and dosa may sound or look to you, the complexities of flavors and the perfection that comes into play when creating the perfect South Indian meal is an art in itself. It takes precision, perfection and a lot of patience.
Fortunately for Indoreans, there are a few eateries that have nailed it when it comes to serving South Indian delicacies. Here’s the list of our favorite fixes.
What do you do when you want to go beyond idlis, vadas, and dosas and let the taste of avial, paniyarams, and appams take over? You head to Banana Leaf to get the authentic flavors of how various South Indian dishes are created in different Southern regions in the country. Trust us, you’d be surprised by the variety. Yeah yeah, thank us later.
If you haven’t experienced ‘being spoilt for choice’ as yet, here’s where you should find yourself at. The variety of specially curated idlis at Sankalp is not just impressive but also deserves a try for every foodie who claims to have a thing for South Indian food. Special mention to the chutneys that guarantee a burst of flavor to make it the perfect experience.
Don’t judge a book by its cover, they say. See where we are getting at? Well, if you feel that the place will only have idli’s on offer, let us tell you, that’s not the case. While they pride in their idlis and the variety, the place serves a slew of dosas with the same sprinkling of love. Go check out for yourself.
South Indian food is best enjoyed when you have a big group to enjoy the meal and chat along with. And when it comes to such big outings with the gang or the fam, it is Romba South that we pick, every time! On a lazy weekend afternoon, finish off that meal with their awesome filter coffee, and head home for a noon siesta. Bliss is achieved!
We have told you about where to get the perfect idlis and dosas, but if you are an uttapam person, then this is where you ought to be. They open up early too so you can totally totally make this your breakfast go-to. Hey, not just on weekends but on weekdays too, just before you head to work. Now, that’s what we would call a great start. Nai?
