5 South Indian Restaurants Redefining The Cuisine In Delhi

South Indian cuisine is one of the most less-explored ones in India and worldwide, even though some of its delicacies are one of the most popular ones- idli, dosa, vada, sambar and coconut chutney! Unfortunately, the knowledge of south Indian cuisine for most of the population is limited to just that. And if you are someone who thinks the gastronomical journey down south is boring and bland with just the five things mentioned above across the region, we are sorry for you. Because south India is also about the robust and fiery Chettinad cuisine, it is also about the mouth-watering seafood delicacies from the coastal region of Malabar and the red-hot Andhra chicken curry, biryanis and Mangalorean chicken.

And changing the notions of Delhiites about diverse South Indian cuisine is a set of restaurants across the capital city, serving sumptuous delicacies from the regions of the south. One dish at a time.
