Indigo Guwahati Chennai Flights

A Journey to the Vibrant City Of Chennai to Enjoy Its Delicious Cuisine

South Indian cuisine always enticed, whether it was the staple Idli Sambhar or the elaborately made Avial. In Guwahati, I would step into a south Indian restaurant whenever I had time to enjoy various tiffin items such as Rava Dosa and Masala Dosa etc.

So when I got a chance to stay in Chennai for couple of days due to work, I grabbed the opportunity and made a list of restaurant where I could explore south India food delicacies to the fullest extent. I booked ticket from Guwahait to Chennai on Indigo Air.

Currently, the airline operates to 44 destinations and has placed order for more carriers so that it can reach out to more passengers. Indigo Guwahati Chennai flights are nonstop and held throughout the week. My journey on the carrier from Guwahati to Chennai lasted, two hours and fifty minutes during which time, I enjoyed a light meals.

Travelers on the carrier have to pay for meals when buying flight tickets to enjoy them on board. Once the flight landed, I took a cab to reach the hotel accommodation.

I Stayed In a Posh Three Star Venue

My place of stay is the famous Fabhotel Iberis OMR, which is a majestic three star accommodation situated in OMR-Old Mahabalipuram Road, Chennai. It has 24 rooms which are spread across five floors.

The hotel’s ambience is warm and welcoming, with its simplicity and utilitarian furnishings. My rooms were simple, neat and fitted with latest guest comforts. I could enjoy delicious south Indian, north Indian and other types of dishes in the hotel’s restaurant.  

The hole has a travel desk through which sightseeing tours can be enjoyed. It also has a modern business center for conducting business activities. Other facilities are room service and laundry.

Enjoying Delicious South Indian Cuisine

I took a cab to the famous Sarvana Bhavan restaurant to enjoy evening snacks. One item that I relished very much from the list that I ordered was the Puliyogare. This is a spicy, aromatic rice dish made from tamarind pulp.  

Thick juice extracted from tamarind pulp is used in the making. It is mixed with steamed rice, to which other garnishing such as mustard, udad dhal, channa dhal, peanuts and curry leaves are added. The best way to enjoy it is with a cup of cool curd.

As I found this dish to be very spicy, it opted for curd rice. The dish made from rice that is mixed with curd  which is then seasoned with pomegranates, mustard, udad dhal and curry leaves, was very cooling and of course delicious. The curd I the dish tasted almost like butter and I savored every bit of it.

On my next trip t the restaurant, I enjoyed a typical south Indian meal for lunch and in the evening, enjoyed some masala dosa and sambhar vada. I then returned to my hotel room to pack for the return flight, thoroughly satisfied with the various culinary delights that I had enjoyed in the city.
