The bright pink walls of Rasa in Stoke Newington are almost as bold as the flavours in their south Indian dishes. Opened in 1997, the vegetarian Keralan joint was the first of the Rasa chain that's now spread as far as Birmingham. Their basics - lentil daals and chewy coiled paratha - are always wholesome and moreish, but try more unusual dishes like moru kachiathu, a turmeric-infused, sweet-sour runny yoghurt dish made with mango and green banana for authentic Keralan flavour. Almost everything on the menu is priced at less than a fiver.
