One of John’s favourite meals of the whole summer has to have been at this restaurant on Tooting High Street. The restaurant is called Dosa & Chutney (dosanchutny.com), and as the name suggests specialises in south Indian dosa, with a vast menu of other dishes from the same area. We first visited for lunch on our wedding anniversary, despite having decides to have a light lunch to prevent us ruining our celebratory dinner that evening. We were definitely glad we visited.
The menu consists of a range of South Indian dishes, some better known than others, alongside classic Indian curries. We decided on a masala dosa with chicken and a mutton kottu. For those of you who do not know, a dosa is similar to a pancake, and made from a fermented batter of rice or dhal and kottu is a dish made from chopped up roti, mixed together with spices, meat and egg. Both dishes are usually served with a curry sauce, dhal and raita.
Our meals were delicious, the dosa was crispy and the filling spicy and full of flavour. The kottu was better than any we have had before. Both dishes were filling and very tasty. The sauces were great accompaniments to the dishes.
John spent the rest of the summer asking to visit this unremarkable looking restaurant for every meal. Needless to say, he is definitely a fan. We did return again a few more times and were not disappointed. This restaurant comes highly recommended.
