Chennai is a city rich in history and culture that has evolved over time and has become one of India's most important cities. Between temples and markets, Chennai also offers its visitors a wide choice of dishes to enjoy! Here are 4 to try:
The city may not have its own version of biryani, but even here you will find this typical Indian dish very tasty. The small grain version of Dindigul is trendy in Chennai, but it is the version of Ambur cooked at Muslim weddings that is the city's favourite.
The British influence on the city's eating habits is still evident today. This soup combines traditional ingredients such as grated coconut with British specialities such as apple, carrot and chicken, and is usually served with a few bites of rice. The result is delicious!
This dessert that melts in the mouth divides its fans into two factions: those who like the softer version of the typical dessert and those who prefer the slightly rough but crumbly dough. Try both and take a stand! In any case you won't be disappointed!
Chennai is a treasure for lovers of seafood and fresh catch of the day, easily available! In fact, one of the city's quintessential fish dishes is Nethili fry anchovies soaked in a crispy and delicious spicy masala. A dish to try!
