We had traditional South Indian vegetarian breakfast at the extremely popular Subbiahs Mess located at a stones throw from Hotel Tamilnadu where we were staying.It was not a very fancy place. We had delicious idlis, dosas,vadas,puris and rava dosa with generous helping of sambar and a variety of colorful chutneys. We ate in traditional South Indian style - on plantain leaves and used our hands. No knives, forks or spoons ! We had a wholesome,delicious and fulfilling breakfast for which we paid a kings ransom of Rs.230/- or US.$.4/- for 7 persons.
