I have a (almost religious) ritual of going out for a South Indian breakfast on Fridays (or Saturdays). I lost count of the number of places I have visited long ago but I wouldn’t be surprised if they exceed a hundred (and I’m being conservative with that estimate). This was my first ever home delivery; funny enough, it comes a day after I told a group of my friends that I do not like dark kitchens – Tamarind Coastal Kitchen in Barsha is exactly that – a dark, or as they like to call themselves, delivery kitchen. I ordered my usual breakfast trinity of dosa, idli and vada, and settled down in the comfort of our chilly TV room to watch the morning news while I waited for my food.
The food arrived within an hour and was still warm. Everything was beautify (and quite professionally) packed in recyclable brown cardboard containers. I knew the dosas would be a little soggy (no helping that) but the idlis and vadas arrived in prefect condition. I loved the mini idlis in their signature drumstick sambar. Sogginess of the dosa aside, the masala, sambar and chutneys of the masala dosa were right up there with the best of them. I cannot tell you how impressed I’ve been with this order. So much so that I wholeheartedly recommend this delivery kitchen for those days when you want a good South Indian breakfast but can’t be bothered leaving the cool comfort of your home. I will try their other dishes soon…
