Sambar is back! After a bit of a break, we are ready to wet your appetite with delicious hot dosas again, and with the changing weather, you can’t deny you find the thought of a steaming hot dosa very appealing. And of course, all proceeds go to the education of underprivileged children in India.

So to recap: delicious hot dosas ( the only place on campus! ) + chaats and lasssi on the side = contributing to a good cause + a very good dinner. Good deal, don’t you think?

So bring your friends/parents/grandparents/cousins/professors/piano teachers….anyone and everyone is welcome! Lets share our love for South Indian food.
