Late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s was always special for food lovers , her Amma canteens are hit with everyone, from IT executives to rickshaw drivers.
Food lovers and Amma die hard fans in her memory cooked a Idly weighing 68 kg made in the form of late TN CM Jayalalithaa’s face at Marina Beach.
Amma canteens serve idlis (Re1 each) and pongal for breakfast, three varieties of pre-mixed rice for lunch (the Sambhar Rice and Curd Rice that cost just Rs3 each are a constant, while the third dish is either a Lemon Rice or a Curry Leaf Rice), and chapattis (Rs3 for two) served with a complimentary dal for dinner.
