Vegetarians, get ready for an enticing lunch at Woodlands, serving up authentic South Indian food. Southern Indian fare differs from Northern fare with its the abundant use of rice and coconut. Among the most renowned comfort foods are dosa, a thin rice crepe, stuffed with vegetables and idli, a round steamed puff made from rice paste. Idli is served with sambar, a spicy soup and a chutney often made with coconut. Off of the menu, check out Vada Pav, a Mumbai street food consisting of a spicy potato filing deep-fried in a chickpea batter. Also consider the Bombay Pani Puri Shots, which are crispy rice puffs stuffed with chick pea. Pour the mint sauce, tamarind sauce and spicy water into it before eating.
