Chutney Anyone?

Amidst a block packed with some of the most interesting murals in the city lies a villa.

The villa's fame comes from the generous amounts of chutney. Banana (my favourite), mango (even though I love the fruit, not really good), tomato (good) and coconut (alright).

The Aachi Varuval (cauliflower fried in peppery lentil-rice batter) sure needed chutney to moisten them.

The Dosa, crispy lentil rice flour crepes, looked weird, tasted even weirder.

One was stuffed with potatoes, peas and carrots. Tasty stuffing, but difficult to enjoy given the un-rolling dosa shape.

The Madras lamb curry was the best choice we made for this meal.

Spiced southern Indian style, it's a different flavour than northern Indian or Pakistani curries I had (I prefer the latter two though).

Some bloggers raved about the Biriyani with onion pachadi and eggplant. Not a repeat (the egg saved the dish).

Boring ambiance, slow service and uncomfortable seating did not help either.
