  1. Idli (Rice cakes)
  2. Dosa (Rice Crepe)
  3. Pongal (Steamed Rice and dhal spiced with black pepper and garnished in ghee)
  4. Vada (Fried dumplings made of rice and garnished with chilis (can contain onions) )
  5. Steamed Rice
  6. Rasam (A kind of soup)
  7. Sambhar (Another kind of soup)
  8. Upma (A toss up of stuff )
  9. Curd
  10. Steamed Veggies
Have any of you indulged in south Indian cuisines before. If so, then share your views. Its hard to describe until you have seen it or eaten it before, but I tried my best to introduce the basic entrees in south indian food to you.
I love the Indian Cuisine I've had here in Honolulu, but by no means am I a expert in what is authentic since there is a paucity of Indian Restaurants here. I don't know if any of the Indian Restaurants here serve south Indian cuisine. Perhaps you could tell me by looking at the link below?

See link:

Indian restaurant Honolulu, HI

I usually order samosas, either vegetarian or with lamb, lamb vindaloo, fish marsala, coconut rice with cashews and gulab jamun for desert if it's available.

In my opinion there is no substitute for "curry leaves". Nothing is even close.

Another favorite I have from Hyderabad is the vegetable called "drumsticks". MMMMMMMMMMMMM
I like to experiment when I cook and try all different types of cuisines. I had to buy curry leaves to make a Malaysian dish, Beef Rendang. It was sooo good!

But there are lots of non vegetarian foods as well, and in India mutton (goat meat) is very famous.

Mutton is older sheep, not goat.

Indian food is very diverse based on region & religion. The Hindus from southern part of India and gujarati are mostly strict vegetarian while people from the north, or the Goan, or people from Punjab or Muslim Indians usually will eat meat. Then of course there are the Christians and the Catholics who will eat any meat including beef

I cook a lot of Indian food at home (husband is from India) and I rely on You Tube a lot when trying out new-to-me recipes. I find written recipes can be tricky to follow since there are important nuances and details in cooking that can make or break your cooking but those can only be captured by watching someone cooks in front of you. My favorite you tube chef is Indian Food Recipes, Indian Cooking, Videos, Recipes, Indian Food The guy is funny too!

First off, you need a stainless steel coffee filter.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...fee_filter.jpg

Put raw coffee powder into the top section of the filter. Place the hole punctured lid inside the top portion. Pour hot water through the filter. Pure liquid coffee will collect in the lower portion of your filter.

Then boil milk till froths appear.

Pour the milk into a cup, and pour the filtered liquid coffee into the milk

Add 2.5 teaspoons of sugar

Mix, wait for 5 minutes to cool down, and enjoy .
