நாடு பற்றி எரிந்த போது குஷாலாகத்
தடுமாறாமல் வயலின் இசைத்தது யார்?

தாடி பற்றி எரியும் போது உற்சாகமாக
பீடிக்கு நெருப்பு கேட்பது யார்? யார்?

கொரோனா, கோவிட் என்று அஞ்சாமல்
பெயர் சொல்லி உணவைத் தேடுவதா?

This article is dated: 2018. So, please check up with the Mercure"s Melange to ascertain whether is the Kanchipuram idli on their menu card still......

Of divine Kanchipuram idlis and menu engineering at Mercure's Melange (Foodie Trail-Chennai)


Among the several types of idlis -- a healthy South Indian dish -- the Kanchipuram idli has a special, even divine, status. It is offered to the Lord Varadharaja Perumal in Kanchipuram.

An official of the Varadharaja Perumal temple told IANS that no other temple has the Kanchipuram idli as the main offering to the Lord.

The dish has a unique taste, texture and flavour thanks to the ingredients and not many star hotels have it on their menu.

However, S. Satyaseelan, Executive Chef at Mercure Chennai Sriperumbudur near here has the Kanchipuram idli on the menu card of Melange -- the 100-room hotel's multi-cuisine restaurant.

"While we offer global cuisine as well as local cuisine infused with foreign flavours, the inclusion of Kanchipuram idli in the menu was done to offer our guest the local specialty," Satyaseelan, son of a cook in a temple in Karnataka, told IANS.

The temple town of Kanchipuram is around 35 km from Oragadam, where the hotel is located.

By this time two Kanchipuram idlis in small tumbler shapes, along with gunpowder and gingelly oil, arrived at the table. The gunpowder mixed with gingelly oil and the Kanchipuram idli are made for each other.

The dream of ever Westerner is to visit Disney Land or Disney World once during their life time.

I was surprised to see old men and women dragging on Oxygen cylinders attached to their nostrils!

Obviously Indians have a loftier dream of eating some exotic dish (?) / (!) during their life time! :(
