Preparation of idli is an almost daily affair in South India

South Indian cuisine is almost synonymous with idli! Idli is not only easy to make but also extremely healthy and easy to digest. Grinding of batter and the preparation of Idli is an almost daily affair in South Indian homes. Being a safe, tasty and wholesome breakfast, it is preferred by people all over the world now.

In fact, when stranded on a highway with nothing to eat, people wouldn’t hesitate to walk into a roadside hotel and buy a few idlis, as it is steamed, and therefore quite safe to eat anywhere!

Dosas are considered a more indulgent alternative to idlis in South India

Dosa is as popular in South Indian cuisine as Idli is! Crisp and thin pancakes made of a rice and urad dal batter, dosas are even more exciting than idlis. In fact, while idlis are considered to be an easy, comfortable steamed food, dosas are often considered a more indulgent alternative!

While dosas were traditionally made using iron griddles, nowadays non-stick tavas have made the job much easier. You can roast your dosas using oil, ghee or sometimes butter too! Enjoy them hot and crisp, with chutney and sambhar.

Uttapams are very popular aleternative to idlis and dosas

Onion Tomato Uttapam is a sumptuous South Indian snack, often had for breakfast or dinner. It is basically a thick pancake, made with dosa batter and topped with juicy onions and tangy tomatoes.

Tasty Onion Tomato Rava Uttapa is a versatile dish that can be made for breakfast or supper, or as an evening snack for kids. Interestingly, this recipe is not a quick-fix that uses soda to rise the batter, nor does it require planning the previous day, as an hour is all that it takes for the semolina batter to ferment, thanks to the quick action of curds. With tangy tomatoes, pungent onions, and the perky combo of coriander and green chillies, this uttapa has all that is to be desired.
