About South Indian Food

Traditional south Indian cuisine recommends that one include all of these six tastes in each main meal eaten. Each taste has a balancing ability and including some of each provides complete nutrition, minimises cravings and balances the appetite and digestion.

Typical Indian masala dosa is a combination of shredded, cooked, and fried vegetables with Indian sauce and several spices as the basic stuffing, enveloped by a thick brown dosa made out of a dal and rice batter. To embellish this unique preparation, it is served with hot sambar and coconut chutney.

Special notes for customer:

1. Cutting down on fat is easier than you think. If you trim obvious fat away from meat foods, if you have them cooked or grilled instead of fried, all of this contributes to lower fat meals so this is exactly what we do.

2. To keep yourself fit and healthy choose high fibre food such as brown rice, chapati bread etc. Bake with brown flower as often as you can. Most vegetables have fibre too so we keep this philosophy when we prepare your meals.

3. Our curry is cooked with extra garlic, which is the best for your heart and blood and give your curry a higher standard of taste.  If you prefer to have less garlic please mention when you place your order.
