South Indian food! Mmm, the very term gets the juices flowing in your mouth and in your stomach. Delicious, scrumptious, mouth-watering, healthful, diverse, tantalizing and fulfilling.
Though this type of food comes from the southern part of the Indian sub-continent, its delectable aroma is present around the world today.
What is this book all about?
This book of recipes cuts straight to the heart of the matter and goes for the best in South Indian breakfast dishes. Light meals are the order of the day, and the typical South Indian breakfast leaves you feeling light but well-nourished to take on the challenges of the day.
The Delicious Diversity of Dosas!
Can you guess how many varieties of dosas there are? Some say 10…others are generous, and say 50. Well, one catering college in Kerala challenged the world and served no less than 624 types of dosas at a local food fest! How many other world foods can you think of that has that many variants?
Did you think that idlis and dosas were the only things to come out of South Indian kitchens? Then think again! In this book alone you’ll find several other delicacies and even specially made condiments that will delight your taste buds with their characteristic aromas, spices and flavors.
Health in Your Kitchen!
But taste isn’t what South Indian cooking is all about. It’s about healthy ingredients, no gluten and a balanced use of saturated fats that give you a wholesome meal. Here are just some of the great ingredients in Indian cooking, and their benefits:
Black Pepper: A true South Indian favorite, this feisty little spice helps fight cancer; it also aids digestion and helps eliminate gas, diarrhea and constipation; it is a natural antidepressant; it is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the signs of aging; latest studies show that it may help fight obesity as well – a sorely needed ingredient in most American homes, unfortunately.
Cumin (Jeera): It is great for digestive disorders; it helps fight anemia, especially in women, teenagers and smaller children; it is also a natural body coolant that works to remove excess heat – as in cases of heat exhaustion from working outdoors.
