South Indian recipes





South Indian cuisine is much-loved across India, especially its wide spread of breakfast treats like Idli , Dosa and uttapas. However, there is much more to South Indian cuisine, including a large variety of rice dishes, one-dish meals, main course dishes like Sambhar , Rasam , etc., accompaniments like chutneys and salads, as well as preserved foods like podis (powders) and pickles.

This section helps you explore a large goldmine of recipes from all over South India, ranging from the satiating Keralite dishes like Appam , Avial and Kadala Curry, to spicy Chettinad delicacies, tongue-tickling Karnataka delights like Rava Idli, Andhra Pradesh specialties like Pesarattu and Tamil Nadu recipes like Adai , Sambhar and Chakra Pongal . You will discover the authentic ways to prepare your favourite dishes, as well as lesser-known treasures from the cuisine of southern India.

You will also be able to identify and appreciate the common characteristics of this cuisine, such as the position rice holds as the staple food, the abundant use of lentils and coconut, traditional ways of tempering, and so on. Your masala box needs to be equipped with mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, sesame seeds, red chillies, broken urad dal and chana dal, as these are frequently used in South Indian cooking.

Take your pick from these recipes, and serve them on a banana leaf, to recreate a perfect south Indian meal-time!

Sada Uttapa ( Mumbai Roadside Recipe) by Tarla Dalal
