Idli + Sambhar = Ratna Cafe

Idli have many accompaniments. But nothing tastes better than idlis drenched/drowned in aromatic sambar. And when I picture this combo, I get the image of sambar being poured out of a mug on the idlis at Ratna Cafe. Think of idli & sambar, think of Ratna cafe. I've had food here umpteen times. Couple of weeks before, had severe craving for sambhar idli. Considering the distance in mind and some other petty reasons landed up in Saravana Bhavan, the decision I've been regretting since then. I calmed the screaming soul by promising it "Whatever happens, next week Ratna cafe porom. Idliya Sambhar-la kulachu adikkarom". I'm a person who keeps up her promise you know. Well at least when it comes to food ;) Gobbled up two plates of idlis and 4 mugs of sambhar (Yep I drank most of it :) ), with a sambhar vadai, podi dosai and half of a rava dosai. Apart from idli sambar, I like their podi dosai a lot. With generous amount of spicy and gritty podi smeared over a crispy dosai is absolutely yummy.



Swaha !!!
A plate of idlis (2 nos) with unlimited sambar costs 54 bucks. For that sambhar I don't mind paying this amount.

All these cost us 400 odd bucks which is absolute VFM given the taste and service.
