-By Ameeta Agnihotri

Chennai’s Grand Sweets and Snacks outlets are famous for their traditional South Indian sweets and snacks. Their flagship outlets of which there are two now, have occupied the same space through the years in an old independent house in Adyar. From July to September, every year, you can hear American accents fly back and forth as the NRI crowd converge here to pick up their annual supply of snacks. The thing about Grand Sweets is that their snacks taste fresh even after being kept for a while. That is because they do not re-use the oil once the snacks and sweets have been fried in it. For weddings Grand Sweets make grand efforts and create the plate sized hand murukkus, and all other traditionally essential eats. During festivals, they make the sweets and snacks that must be eaten or else... to think it all began with one little old man whose last ditch effort this was. He gave it his all, and today The Grand Sweets and Snacks has become almost a revered household name. They have several outlets in the city.

Just visited this place to purchase some south Indian chips chaklis to take back home and chanced upon a dish we call appam (Appe in marathi). The lady prepares them infront of your eyes and its a delicacy to watch it being prepared. Added with some sambar chutney and its a good dish to go out with. I did not try the in house restaurant but should be good looking at satisfied faces. The other thing that happened to me was the attitude with which I was explained the difference between Banana Chips from Kerala and Tamilnadu. His temper was about to flare up when I asked him the yellow ones. After tasting what he offered me it was neatly justified....Obviously Malyali and Tamil are 2 different preparations and one from out of town can get confused with the two of them. Anyways the service at the counter was great ....
