Karuvepillai podi, parupu podi and veppilai katti are also available for sale here.
Mylapore based couple Ramakrishnan, and Latha Krishnan, have been running this popular Mess in the neighbourhood for over 15 years now.
Following the lockdown in March, their business had dwindled. However, Ramakrishnan says sales is picking up now, slowly. “Although it’s nowhere close to pre-covid times,” he says.
Now, Ramakrishnan says there is a big demand for podis.
Says Ramakrishnan, “We have been offering idly molagai podi since many years. But, now as most people are cooking at home, there is a big demand for podis. Hence, we have started offering them too.”
The podis are made fresh at the Mess, daily.
Their regular breakfast (idly, vada, pongal, kichadi) and lunch (sambhar, rasam, kootu, rice) are also available for sale here.
100 grams of idly molagai podi is priced at Rs 50. For details call 9444108923.
The Mess is open on all days from 7 a.m. to 10.30 a.m at Mandaveli Lane near Thandu Mariamman Temple.
