Village Voice's Description

The glory of the strictly vegetarian menu at Tiffin Wallah-named after the dudes who deliver box lunches to offices in Indian cities-is a series of set meals called thalis that reflect four of India's vegetarian cuisines. You're probably already familiar with the northern Indian version, including vegetable curries like saag paneer and alu ghobi (selection varies). The Gujarati thali features a buttermilk soup and the fritters called kachori, while the south Indian cradles a mini masala dosa and spongy idly dumplings. Finally, a thali from the far-south region of Kerala (weekends only) includes a yogurt-thickened stew of eggplant and plantain, and a tamarind-laced tomato soup.

    The idli in rasam bowl...divine. And so is the onion rava masala. Just order one of everything on the menu :)
