Vegan

South India has a breathtakingly vast food culture.

 

A large part of this cuisine has always been fruit and vegetable based and naturally vegan.

This food is light yet nourishing, subtle yet spicy and the combination of rice, coconut, lentils, and local spices give South Indian cuisine a distinctive taste easily differentiated from any other region of India.
