It is almost a tradition now for me to take a photo of my business thali at Saravanaa Bhavan & SMS it to my teacher , Jorgen C.
It was almost 3 years ago that he clued me into this bastion of Southern Indian vegetarian " comfort food ".
I try to schedule my flight into JFK late in the afternoon on a Sunday so I have enough time to check in to the hotel & either hop on the subway , or take a leisurely walk to SB on 26th & Lex .
My walk last Sunday was particularly delightful as I saw all the cherry trees in bloom on the median strip in Park Avenue. Glorious spring weather.
The puri that you see above has to be eaten immediately with the incredible yoghurt , rasam & pickles.
