South India has provided us with a wide range of foods to relish in the taste. From the comfort of idli-sambhar to the sophisticated and authentic flavors of masala dosas, coconut and tomato chutneys, these meals are popular throughout India and are capable of bringing cravings literally any time of the day. To satiate these sudden hunger pangs, you do not always have to order food from the market. Shwetha Nayak Mhetar, an exemplary cook and founder of Shwetha’s Batter Store brings the flavors of traditional South Indian cuisine, maintaining the authenticity of homemade batters to be delivered at your doorstep.
Shwetha’s Batter Store is an idea that originated from the shared love and remembrance for the South Indian delicacies that Shwetha and her husband shared. With her husband as her strongest pillar of support and her main food critic at the same time, Shwetha took a leap of faith and experimented with her dishes to now produce a variety of items made with love to bring the flavor of authenticity to your plate. Idli dosa, ragi idli dosa, multigrain idli dosa, Adai dosa, garlic coconut chutney, or tomato chutney- you name it, she has it!
Quality is paramount for batterstore
Shwetha lays a very strong emphasis on not only just procuring quantity but delivering the highest quality standards. With nutrition and hidden superfoods in all its batters, She makes sure that her batter boosts health and brings overall nourishment.
The ingredients used in the making of the idli dosa batter differ from each other. For their limited selection, the team ensures that all their ingredients are fresh and sourced directly from the farmer or distributors, which are thoroughly checked before the process to transform them into the batter begins. This process is very meticulous and done while maintaining the highest standards of hygiene. The quantities of dal and rice are used in exact proportions to meet the perfect consistency so that you can prepare crispy dosas and soft idlis within a few minutes, served hot at your dining table.
Food that carries legacy
Inspired by her maternals back in the coastal town of Karnataka, Shwetha has learned this knack of cooking from her mom and grandmother. The importance of spices in enhancing the flavors is something she has always taken care of to bring the batters to perfection. Knowing that chutneys are the heart of South Indian cuisine, she has catered herself to bring this perfection that screams brilliance with flavorful and delectable taste.
Having started her own food brand was a risk she was willing to take amid the pandemic. Though she started Shwetha’s Batter Store in 2019, the growth actually happened mid-pandemic when she got to serve the customers from the comfort of her own walls. With rigorous efforts, now she not only has her own website but her batters are also available on big brand platforms such as Amazon, Swiggy, Fraazo, Godrej Natures Basket and Big Bazaar and the lady has also established a factory unit to serve the whole nation and envisages to even equip the foreigners with the taste of authentic Indian food.
Batters that are organic, 100% free of preservatives and gluten, and are vegan are what The Batter Store holds as its USP. With assured fast delivery, if you are craving a dosa right now, head on to Shwetha’s website and order a healthy pack of dosa batter already!
