I love south Indian food. One of the reasons why I agree to fly down even for one song is because I get to eat some really good food here. Be it the thaalis, idlis, dosas or the different varieties of chutneys — the food here is to die for. I'd been to Murugan Idli once and I had the softest idlis there.
