    Kozhi Idli
    This one-and-a-half-year old outlet in Royapettah is well-known for their idlis and side dishes in a box. Vegetarians get three idlis with tomato and garlic chilli podi (Rs. 35), while non-vegetarians can tuck into idlis with pepper gravy (Rs. 65). They also have other options like chicken thoku and chicken panniyarum, which are popular. According to Saravana Kumar, the manager of the outlet, their kozhi rasam (which is similar to a hot and sour chicken soup) is to die for. Details: 9941964000

    This non-vegetarian delivery station has options for those on the move. They offer fish kola (fish balls), an authentic South Indian starter. The dish is made with basa fish mixed with Indian masalas, and resembles a cutlet. “We can customise the dish, too. In the old days, the kola would be mixed with coconut or mango. If we are informed earlier, we can do it for customers,” says Ramalingam Muthusamy, the owner. 15 kolas are priced at  Rs. 600 and their iftar special offer is 20 pieces for `600.
