Kerala ( India) – Gods own country

The food of Kerala is one that needs no introduction: It’s simple, zesty, flavorful and offers an intelligent combination of potent spices Unlike the cuisine of its neighboring states, the food of Kerala prides itself on being predominantly non-vegetarian. You’ve got chicken, mutton, pork, beef and a thrilling range of  seafood – mussels, crab, tiger prawns, king prawns, tiny prawns, oysters, sardines, mackerel, tuna and gorgeous red lobsters.

Mallu ( Malayalis) food isn’t just about the recipes; it reflects a meeting of cultures. Kerala Hindus have a largely vegetarian menu and use coconuts that grow along the coast.

I will be sharing few Kerala recipes in the coming posts
