Like all other cultures, Tamil Nadu also has a different set of food habits. For instance, sambar is one of the most preferred food items in Tamil Nadu. This mixture of lentils, vegetables and tamarind is widely eaten with idli, rice and dosas. Rice is the staple food here which is even used in sweet dishes like payasum. In Tamil Nadu, a lot of non vegetarians eat simple, non greasy and lesser spicy chicken curries, meatballs and ragi balls with curry. A common food habit followed throughout Tamil Nadu includes an elderly lady, who uses a utensil with the mix of rice and curry, prepares balls using her hands and ghee and serves it to children while narrating them popular fables. Do you know of any other food habits followed in Tamil Nadu?

Rasam, Tamarind rice, Seasoned curd rice, Upma, Pongal, Idly, Aapam, etc etc are dishes special to Tamil Nadu.
Rice is the staple food.... but tamil nadu is also famous for a variety of multi grain dishes ... like kambu (bajra) saadham, kambu kool, chola (jowar) saadham, ragi (Finger millet) dosa, kollu (horse gram) chutney, etc. These dishes cannot be found in hotels... they are native to the villages or Tamil Nadu. Their nutritious value and taste are unparalleled..!
