Groundnut/Peanut Chutney - A quick and easy chutney recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. It is a perfect accompaniment to idli, dosa, upma, rava idli and uttappam. If you like the taste of peanuts, then you will love this chutney. Many people add coconut, roasted gram or garlic to this chutney, but I prefer it as it is. Try out this delicious chutney.

Curd rice or Yogurt rice - Part of South Indian cuisine, is a true comfort food. A meal in South India is not considered complete unless and until curd rice/thayir sadam is served.
It is really easy to prepare and does not require many ingredients. The addition of ginger, curry leaves and coriander leaves add a beautiful flavor to the rice. It is a complete meal by itself and does not require any special side dish, just any pickle will do.
