When my friend and I entered Madras Curry Cup, we were presented with a refreshing wet towel. This reminded me of my journeys in Jet Airways flights. The moment the flight took off, the air hostesses would give us a hot/cold towel to wash our face and hands.
We were then asked to customize our Curry Cup with the available bases like Mini Idly, Idiyappam, White Rice, Brown Rice, Kuli Panniyaram, Kuduraivali, etc, add some of their signature curries and then top it off with veggies/ proteins.
I chose Kuli Panniyaram (a.k.a Kuzhi paniyaram or Paddu or Gunta Ponganalu or is an Indian dish made by steaming batter using a mould. The batter is made of black lentils and rice and is similar in composition to the batter used to make idli and dosa), Vada Curry, Vendakkai (Ladies Finger) Thayir (Curd) Pachidi, and Chickpea Sundal.
Along with our curry cup, we were also given a cup of Rasam. I so hate drinking Rasam off a cup but for the first time I loved it. The Rasam was as thick as soup.

The Coconut Burfi reminded of my school days when my grandmother prepared it once in a while and we cousins gorged on them.
Badam Milk was thick and tasty and had several crushed almonds inside the bottle. I drank the Badam Milk while my friend tasted both.
