Street Food Diaries : Yummy, Delicious Tirunelveli Idli available at Mumbai

Street Food at its best…!!!

Mumbaikars don’t have to travel all the way to Tirunelveli to taste the authentic Tirunelveli special Idli. It is available right here in Mumbai.

‘Shaktivel Idliwala’ is what the owner Shaktivel has named his cycle on which he sells the yummy delicious idlis.

Idlis are served with a topping of special South Indian Coconut Chutney and Tirunelveli Sambhar (the taste of this Sambhar is slightly different from the regular South Indian Sambhar).

He also serves “Medu Vada’ along with Idlis.

Shaktivel puts up his idli cycle store near Samta Nagar Bus Depot, Thakur Village, Kandivili (E).

Timing: Morning 9 am to 12 pm and Evening 6 pm to 9 pm

Price is also nominal. Cost for one plate of Idli is just Rs.20/- (4 idlis). Vada served in the morning is of smaller size – so that is priced at Rs. 20/- (4 vadas). In the evening he serves bigger sized vadas at Rs. 10/- per piece.

One thing I liked about this person is that he makes sure that the garbage is not thrown around. He carries a garbage bag with him in which he collects the papers, left overs, etc. He also gets water along with him so that his Customers can wash their hands before and after indulging on a super tasty breakfast / snack.

You can speak to him at 9867255593 and make sure that he is available before visiting the place.
