Just the thought of soft idlis, crispy dosas with piping hot sambar and a cup of filter coffee transports us to the goodness of South India.
Here’s the list of places where you should consider for a hearty meal.
This cosy cafe tucked away in Salisbury Park serves South Indian snacks along with other South Indian specialities. The steaming hot ghee pudi mini idlis, freshly fried crunchy wada, and an interesting array of dosa are a favourite of the frequent visitors.
P.S.: You might as well want to give those fried banana chips here a try.
Where: Shop 7, Mira Society, Salisbury Park, Gultekdi, Camp Area, Pune.
Cafe Idli, a name doing rounds for its delicious food, is actually not a restaurant, but an only- delivery kitchen in Pune. Serving homemade authentic South Indian food, the menu includes idli and wada varieties, and a delicious spread of traditional Kerali dishes. Try it for beyond obvious veg and non-veg combinations, home-delivered.

A wholesaler and retailer of idlis, Maniraam’s idli is a takeaway counter in PCMC. Some really big, soft and fluffy idlis with coconut chutney is what you should expect. You can purchase in bulk too.
Where: PCMC Swimming Pool Building, Near Akurdi Police Chowky, Nigdi Pradhikaran, Pune – 44.
The newest entrant that has taken Pune by surprise,’ We Idliwale’ is a hidden gem in Baner. With limited items on their menu, this place is a must-visit if you want to go the unusual way to have Chicken curry or meatballs with soft idlis. Of course, their chutney and sambar both are exceptional as well.
Where: Shop 2, Ground Floor, Baner BizBay, Laxman Nagar, Baner, Pune.
At Dutta Mandir Chowk, Vimannagar, this small ‘thela’ serves the yummiest South Indian Snacks. Don’t miss the crunchy medu wada bites dunked in piping hot sambar. I’ll let the familiar aromas and crowd direct you to this place.
