The only people claiming they don't like South Indian food are those who never tried it. Intense, yet subtle, excessive, yet balanced. A South Indian vegetarian repertoire is rich and overwhelming, yet one never gets too much of it. I remember our trip to Thirupati, we did stop to eat at a restaurant where garlic sambar was served, and though some of my husband's family do not like garlic and could care less for it, the rest of us just devoured that dish!
So now I miss my favourites, but I did bring Amma's sambar powder with me... and VOILA!
Garden fresh bellpepper, tomatoes and garlic- oh, how they make a difference!
