Give Dosa a Break. Try These Yummy Snacks from the South

South Indian food rarely disappoints when it comes to finding the perfect balance between health and taste.

We know the struggle. Planning…planning, and some more. Something healthy, something new. The good news is, so much of South Indian cuisine lies unexplored, it’s a minefield of taste out there waiting for you to step in! Swap your Paranthas for Pesarattu—a wholesome green moong dosa, or idlis for Idiyappam. Packed with nutrients and flavour, these recipes won’t take you more than 20 minutes to make, and obviously two minutes to chow down.

Instant Pesarattu Dosa

Wholesome and healthy! Combine with a variety of chutneys, our fave is green coriander and mint chutney.
