Made using a lot of veggies, it is quick and easy to prepare the meal. Even children who do not eat vegetables will love this though it has less spicy, and finding the peas in the biriyani makes them love to eat.


white rice

How important is sugar for dessert? Rice is just as important to south Indians. Although there are many dishes, Rice will make the menu completed.



If Idly, dosa or rice had put on to the leaf, the eyes will go search for “SAMBAR”. Sambar is one of the best combos for more than half of south Indian foods. With a spicy and tangy masala, sambar includes more healthy ingredients like vegetables, species, etc.



Just like idly, dosa has its own fanbase, and it has a special, irreplaceable place in banana leaf. There are multiple varieties in dosas, such as Rava dosa, masala dosa, ghee dosa, onion dosa etc.

Vatha Kuzhambu or Kaara Kuzhambu
