Breakfast at thinnai – an ‘All star’ experience!31 Oct, 2015 Travel Subscribe
A happy breakfast flavors the day’s mood. Especially after the fiasco we had with the temple officials in the morning, our morning meals today turned out to be ‘just what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves’. Right next to the lodge we stayed, stood a small hut with a steaming stone that welcomed us warmly.
There were few chairs to sit and a spacious ‘Thinnai’ that held the place together. Banana leaves sprinkled with water were rolled out. Soft Idlis and Roasted Dosas served with yummy chutney – that was the menu and we didn’t bother to think beyond it for the taste kept us spell bound. Right amount of spice to slurp by and the apt amount of salt to slip through, we went crazy over the number of Idlis and Dosas we had. The best part was the way the food was made and served to us.
The kids rolled the out leaves, the father cooked all the food, his brother helped him out and the mother served them all with smile and care. Felt more like a family sitting together, chatting and having food – a priceless feeling that the star hotels cannot offer us anytime. We conversed till our appetite rested and took a lot of candid pictures.
2 Rs/Idli and 10 Rs/Dosa, we were stunned with a humble bill that tallied to just Rs.248 at the end after a hearty breakfast (free of all the lengthy taxes). Before we left, we took an instant picture and gave them a copy of it. They smiled in silence. Looking at them smile, felt like the perfect dessert in a while. Here is a quick portion of the tasty moments. Take a bite.
