India is known to be the land of spices, aromas, textures and flavours. From an overdose of ghee in Rajasthan to the fiercest chilies in the north-east, to the butter obsession of north India to the crackling of mustard seeds in the southern part of the country; there is no homogeneity of flavours between North and South or East or West. However, what remains common is the true love for food.
I have been in Delhi for most part of my life and I dearly love my kebabs and butter chicken and all those butter rich curries. So, when I suddenly decided to spend one month in Chennai, I thought to myself that it's going to be one month of idlis, dosa and vada. I didn't mind that as I genuinely harbour immense love for the simple idlis so I was happy.
To my utter surprise, Chennai not only offers the best idlis (that's pretty obvious) but it was truly a kaleidoscope of aromas, spices and tastes. As you explore this wonderful city, following your nose and the crowds is good rule of thumb when it comes to food however I'll spare you that hard work and present to you my list of restaurants that you must visit during your next trip to Chennai:-
