We Indians are foodies right to the bottom of our heart. Every state in India has its own food culture. No matter how well you can make a North Indian dish in South India or a Bengali dish in Gujarat, you just cannot match its authentic flavor. Every cuisine has its own well-kept secrets, and you only know it when you delve deep down into the basics.
The crunchy feel of vadas, the essence of the spluttering mustard seeds, the amusing soupy concoction of sambar – South Indian dishes are just finger-licking delicious, and more often than not make for a scrumptious brunch option!
