Taste of South India

RE-LIVE THE quaint charm of R.K. Narayan's Malgudi at a South Indian food festival on at the Malgudi restaurant, Hotel Savera. Experienced cooks have been chosen from wedding ceremonies to recreate authentic flavours of the four southern States.

There are different platters. The seafood variety comprises fish fry (sankara, vanjaram); sevantha nethli; and sora puttu/chicken/mutton/veg biriyani. From the kitchens of Kerala one can savour meen moilee; kozhi kuru milagu and attu erachi ularthiyathu.

For some Chettinadu fare, there are varutha kozhi; and attu erachi uppu varuval. Chappa pulusu and vetah mamsam gongura have the spicy flavour typical of Andhra cooking. Other dishes include aachi's varuval; vazhapoo vadai and guthi venkaya. To complete the scene, there's an astrologer with his parrot to predict your future, while Tanjore paintings lend a traditional feel to the ambience. For reservations, call 28114700.
