Cheap Eat of the Week: south Indian doughnuts from Udupi Palace


Published:

Opened in 2001 in Toronto’s Little India neighbourhood, Udupi Palace specializes in south Indian vegetarian cuisine but also offers northern Indian fare as well as fusion dishes, incorporating Asian flavours.

One way to start a meal at Udupi Palace: order a plate of these savoury, cake-textured south Indian doughnuts. The doughnuts, better known as the medhu vada, are fried lentil doughnuts (2 pieces for $4.25) with two sauces for dipping: sambhar, a tamarind vegetable stew or broth, and a chutney.  

But don’t stay just for the apps – they also make a pretty mean dosa, thin rice-and-black-lentil crepes served with different fillings, like spicy chutney or spiced potatoes with onions. There’s also uthapam, which is a thicker, pizza-like dough, as well chaat, a fried dough. Both are accompanied by various toppings and fillings.

Slug it all down with a mango lassi and you’re set!

Udupi Palace, 1460 Gerrard St. E., 416-405-8189
