South Indian Recipes
South Indian cooking is based on lentils, rice, and stews. A rice and lentil batter makes popular crispy, thin crepe-like flatbreads called dosas. Rasam and sambar are essentials soups. Coconut, mustard seeds, curry leaves, and sambar spice mix are foundational flavors. Kerala chicken curry blends all these flavors and makes a welcome change from the usual curries.
