After living in South from past few years one thing in me has definitely changed, my breakfast habits, I have become huge fan of South Indian breakfast and I think I have tasted breakfast of almost each and every kind of South Indian breakfast joint in Bangalore as well as Chennai. There is something very succulent and satisfying about sweet and spicy sambhar, humble chutney and dosa/idli, which with every bite make me crave for more.
When I got newly married and shifted to Chennai I use to buy freshly churned dosa/idli batter....don't give me that look, I was not a food blogger that time and also I had never cooked South Indian food items at my mother's place, she use to make dosa once in a blue moon to treat us but never bothered to ask her how it is being made. Then slowly I started with Rava Idlis, then Rice Idlis, Masala Dosa but I later discovered my favorite of all is Rava Dosa, with more research and cooking trials at home I realized it requires lot of patience to cook Rava Dosa at home, actually being an impatient cook I felt so.
Sometimes at home in morning I wanted to prepare South Indian breakfast but forgot to prepare the batter in advance or short of one or two crucial ingredients then came into picture Soulful, which is a packaged food brand under the under the Kottaram Agro Foods have come up with innovative and interesting range of South Indian breakfast mixes, though market is already flooded with packaged breakfast mixes, then how Soulfull stands out in the crowd??? To know the answer I tried Soulfull Rava Idli mix and to my surprise it was similar in taste and texture as my homemade Rava Idlis, it motivated me enough to try out their Rava Dosa mix, you must be thinking that I am bragging but the result was outstanding, Dosa was crisp, flavorful, no artificial coloring, almost like any good South Indian tiffin center selling, and the best part was the batter stayed good in the fridge even till next day.
