Dakshin Culture Curry, Mahim, Mumbai

One of the perfect & authentic South Indian cuisine in Mumbai will be found nowhere but here at Dakshin Culture Curry.

Located on not so busy road of Matunga (W), Dakshin Culture Curry surely changes our perception of South Indian food which we always end up thinking as only Idli or Dosa.

The food that we explored here goes like this:

Welcome Drink:

Vasantha Neer – Chilled coconut water mingled with honey, lime juice & mint is an authentic drink in South. It’s light & refreshing.

Starters:

Aartipoov Vada – Cooked in tikki style, these vadas are made from banana flowers, onions, curry leaves & groundnut powder. Accompanied with red coconut chutney, these vadas are crispy & delicious. A highly recommended dish here.

Andhra Chicken – Chicken cooked in spicy & tasty Chettinad masala (a special kind of homemade masala in Chettinad region of Tamil Nadu) is something which got us lick our fingers till the last bite. The chicken was cooked to perfection.

Rawas Pollichattu – Fresh Rawas fish marinated with green masala & spices & cooked in coconut milk, is served in a wrapped banana leaf. A unique fish dish that we had ever tried. Highly recommended for Rawas fish lovers.

Main Course:

Palkatti Patani Masala – Paneer cooked in coconut & cashew paste will surely become a vegetarian’s favourite item to order here. It goes best with Paratha.

Mutton Istew – We being not a fan of Mutton, we would rate this dish as a not-so-good one.

Prawns Ghassi – Ghassi which is a popular Mangalorean curry is loved & savoured by many. Fresh prawns cooked in gravy of onion, spices & coconut was perfect in taste & we accompanied it with Appam.

Chicken Chettinad – Again took the entry was the Chettinad masala but this time in the main course. One of the winner dish out of all the food items that we had in the main course, Chicken Chettinad is highly recommended. Tastes best with Malabar Paratha.

Lemon Rice – Served in enough quantity, hot lemon rice helped us complete our main course with an utter satisfaction.

Desserts:

Watalappam – One of the famous homemade delicacy of Kerala, Watalappam is a pudding made of jaggery & coconut milk with a hint of cinnamon flavour. A unique dessert you will ever experience after a hearty meal. Highly recommended dessert at Dakshin Culture Curry.

Shahi Tukda – A not too sweet dessert, Shahi Tukda was prepared to perfection. The best way to end the meal.

Dakshin Culture Curry is definitely a place that offers varieties of flavours & tastes from different regions of South. With live music played on your table with a talented guitarist, its ambience does create a convivial atmosphere.

Happy Meal! 🙂
