South Indian food is commonly known for its beautiful aroma and the irresistible taste that is loved by people from all around the world. Be it the perfect combination of crispiness and nutty aroma in the dosa or the Hyderabad biryani that is served directly from the clay pot – any dish you try is a treat to all your taste buds. South Indian cuisine is not only delicious to eat but also nourishing and digestible. Rice can be considered as the staple food of South India, where lentils, coconuts, and spices are often used in abundance to bring out the brilliant blend of flavor, seasoning, nutrition, taste, and appearance in the prepared dish.
Here are some must-try South Indian Delicacies as suggested by the best South Indian restaurants KL, Mr. Naan and Mrs. Idly (MNMI) to pamper your taste bud (You can thank us later!). For many people, cooking can be like therapy that soothe jangled nerves, heal broken hearts and cure boredom, insomnia, and anxiety. Cooking is a great destresser because it serves as a creative outlet. Cooking can be considered as a sensory experience with aroma, taste, touch, visual delight and even sizzling sound coming into play (got your back!). Also just consider how much healthier it is than eating oily and fried foods from an unknown unhygienic place every day. Health is wealth, people (always remember!)
You are assured that you have done something right when the whole family and the loved ones are mmmmming in unison from something as simple as Masala Dosa!
Masala dosa the most popular South Indian dish is loved by people not only in India but by people all across the world.
Dosa batter is made by soaking rice, urad dal and lentils overnight and then grinding the same to form a batter. The fermented batter is spread in a pan with a thin round layer, and oil/butter is added to make it thin and crispy. Once the dosa is ready, it is filled with a generous amount of mashed potatoes seasoned with mustard seeds and green chili and garnished with coriander leaves and lemon juice. Serve it hot with some sambar and different types of delicious chutney (drooling already?!)

The dish is made using a wholesome mix of various legumes paste such as (arhar) pigeon pea, (chana) chickpea, Vigna mungo (urad) mung, etc. Medu vada, masala vada, and keera vada are some of the different types of “lip-smacking” vada that are served with coconut chutneys and Sambar(taste like heaven!)
