Here are a few of the dishes you are likely to come across.

Authentic Sambar: A highly spiced lentil soup with vegetables. Consistency can vary from thin to thick. It is used as a dip for a range of breads as well as other south Indian dishes.

Dosa: These rice-lentil crepes can be as big as a pizza serving dish. It is offered plain or stuffed, most commonly with seasoned mashed potatoes. Dosa is offered with sambar and authentic coconut chutney for dunking. The batter is fermented a little before cooking. You can have your dosa with your hands, opening the covering of it and using it to pick up the filling in it. It is pliable, but hard than an Indian bread, naan.

Vada: These are doughnuts that are spicy. Taste finest when freshly prepared. 

With your fingers, tear the doughnut into smaller portions and immerse it in the sambar as well as coconut chutney. At any south Indian vegetarian food restaurant, you can order the doughnuts covered in a thick yogurt as well; it's okay to utilize a spoon or fork to have them.

Idli: These steamed rice & lentil cakes are a little sticky to the touch and if not soft and bouncy can freak people out. Idlis are pretty spongy; they take in the ever-present sambar. You can have it with
your hands, sinking the cakes into the soup or coconut chutney. South Indians crumble their idli into sambar, a lot like Westerners crush a saltine into a bowl of soup. Idlis are tasteless; therefore they acquire readily other flavors added in it. Perfect idlis should be light, fluffy as well as textured.

Uthappam: A lot explained as pizza-like, these rice and lentil rounds are more similar to plate-size pancakes. There are a range of toppings added to the uthappam; one can have it made according to his choicest toppings used in it.
