Of course, Crispy Guntur Corn is a hot favourite, literally. Soft-hearted corn kernels are coated with crispness and tossed in Maplai’smagicmilagaipodifor a slight pungency.

The ManavaduBendakai which is thin slices of okra batter fried, will be a favorite even if you don’t like okra. You also have the Chepankizhangu Roast, is slices of colocassia roots, deep fried and tossed in spicy podi. This goes beautifully well with rasam and sadham.

The star of the vegetarian section is the Paneer Kurumulak Fry. Cubes of paneer tossed in a fiery pepper masala. This tastes very close to non veg.Maplai’sPaneer Ka Thakaliare soft fingers of taste. They have the tartness of tomato, seasoning of curry leaves and a dash of asafoetida.
