Chennai, formerly known as Madras, is the capital of Tamil Nadu and one of South India's largest cities. Chennai is not just India's safest city, but it is also considered the country's health capital. When it comes to food, Chennai is one of India's top cities, with a wide range of delectable dishes prepared with a variety of spices and sauces. There are many hotels in Chennai that are known for serving delectable meals, particularly South Indian cuisine. South Indian cuisine is well-known across the country. Idli and dosa, in particular, have become popular among street food vendors. It's worth noting that Chennai's thriving street food industry isn't dominated by idlis and dosas alone. Here are some of the best items from Chennai's street fare. 

Muruku and Muruku Sandwich

Muruku is a crunchy snack made from a mixture of gram and rice flour, seasoned with salt and cumin seeds and deep-fried. Murukkus, which resemble jalebi but are saltier in flavour and served with hot tea, are immensely popular among the natives. Murukus, on the other hand, have evolved over time. In Chennai, various restaurants and street food vendors have created mururku sandwiches. The idea is to use muruku pieces to replace the bread in a regular sandwich and sandwich the rest of the contents between them, such as cucumber, tomato, and onion slices.


There you have it, the best street delights from Chennai that you must try.
