5 Best Combos To Try In The Cuisine From India

1. The Classic Delight: Medhu Vada and Sambar Vada Combo

Medhu Vada and Sambar Vada

At Chennai Cafe, our Medhu Vada is a culinary gem; where each vada is made from a meticulously balanced lentil batter and deep-fried to a perfect golden-brown hue, with a satisfyingly crispy exterior that gives it a soft, savoury core. The Medhu Vada becomes a dance of flavours and textures in every bite when served with fresh chutney and sambar. 

Our Sambar Vada, a twist on the classic, complements it. The crispy lentil doughnut is tenderly soaked in our homemade sambar, allowing the spices and flavours to permeate the vada, converting it from crisp to soft and absorbent bliss that melts on your lips. The sambar, a robust, flavorful lentil stew enriched with various spices and vegetables, makes it a heartwarming choice for those who enjoy a symphony of flavours. 

 Each bite is a journey through the vibrant and diverse flavours that Indian cuisine is celebrated for. This combo is more than just a meal; it’s a celebration of the timeless recipes and culinary craftsmanship that India is renowned for.
