Ancient Culinary Practices

South Indian cuisine still retains many elements of the ancient culture that flourished many years ago: steamed dumplings with coconut, jaggery and cardamom; food served in banana leaves, or the ubiquitous spice blend kari podi, or curry powder, are all indigenous to this region.

Multiple Options Vegan/Vegetarian

South Indian Cuisine is rich with plenty of options for Vegan, Vegetarian and gluten-free diet. Throughout the south, dishes like sambar, kotto and koyamboo (spicy vegetable and lentil stews), kari or thovaran (warm vegetable salads), rasam (soup) and pachadi (yogurt salad) are popular.

Healthy & Tasty Cuisine

South Indian Cuisine involves techniques like steaming, baking in banana leaves and many more. Examples of these dishes includes preparations like idli (steamed dumplings), dosa (lacy crepes) appam, idiyappam and vada (bean fritters), all made with sourdough batter of rice and/or bean.
