Amma’s Kitchen

Amma’s entire menu is certified kosher. Of course, anyone and everyone can enjoy the diversity of alluring flavors and textures. There are dosas, the iconic south Indian crepe made from a batter of fermented rice and black lentils, a golden red, crisp papery marvel on its own, or fried and stuffed with a variety of savory fillings such as potatoes and ghee, spring vegetables, or cottage cheese. There are street snacks: idli, the fermented spongy rice cakes, dipped in sambar and coconut chutney, or tossed with onions, peppers, and chilies; and vada, the fried salty and savory doughnuts made from stone ground white lentil paste (udar), plain with brown and crisp exteriors giving way to soft and spongy interiors, or immersed in rasa (a tangy soup) just long enough to soften them as they soak up the tart and spiced broth.
