Introduction

The dishes are not anglicised (the food does not float in ghee or oil, there is no added fat and it is not greasy or salty). The clarity in flavour, texture and taste will be very obvious. We do not tamper with the traditions and all the dishes are served in their pristine glory.

Please do not hesitate to ask for specific dishes if you are allergic to any spices / nuts, as we prepare every dish from scratch. Most of our dishes are gluten free and please specify if you require gluten free dishes.

      Popadoms (2 Popadoms) Served with chutney 1 £ 0.95
      Medhu Vadai (2 pieces) 3 £ 3.85

      Introduction : Medhu Vada / Ulundu Vadai, is wheel-shaped with a hole in the middle, usually enjoyed with chutney or sambar or both. This mixture is half ground lentils, subsequently seasoned by mixing with black mustard seeds, onion, curry leaves, salt, chilies and/or black pepper grains. The individual vadas are then shaped and deep-fried..

      Although battered and deep-fried, the finished product should not be too oily if prepared correctly, since steam build-up within the vada pushes all oil away from within the vada.

      Vada is typically and traditionally served along with a main course such as Dosa, Idly, or Pongal. Nowadays it is also ordered as an a la carte item but is never the main course and is had as a light snack or on the side of another dish and usually not separately as a meal. Vadas are preferably eaten freshly fried, while still hot and crunchy and is served with a variety of dips ranging from Sambar to chutney to curd.

      Inroduction-Dosa & Oothapam varieties
      The origins of dosa have been widely discussed in literature and books. A few of them are listed below :
      A reference to Dosa occurs in the Tamil Sangam Literature from around 6th century AD. Edward Farnworth mentions the first reference to Thosai in Tamil Sangam literature in the sixth century A.D. The Sanskrit classic Manasollasa written in 1051 AD by Western Chalukya king Somesvara III describes dosai. Modern writers have conflicting views on the origin of dosa. The English food writer Pat Chapman and Lisa Rayner, as well as Indian writer Thangappan Nair, state in their works that dosa originated in Udupi, Karnataka. Dosa, a common breakfast dish and street food, is rich in carbohydrates, contains no sugar or saturated fats. Its constituent ingredients of rice and lentils mean it is gluten-free and contains protein. The fermentation process increases the vitamin B and vitamin C content.
