Indian cuisine in Kerala 'unmissable'

Article content

20 January 2010

Travellers heading to India on holiday must take a trip to Kerala - located in the south-west of the country - in order to sample its world-class food.

According to Solange Hando, writing for Suite 101, although the region is best known as an idyllic honeymoon destination, its vegetarian dishes and spicy curries are among its biggest attractions.

Many of the residents of the south of Kerala are Hindu, meaning that vegetarian curries such as sambar - tamarind and pigeon peas with lots of vegetables - and thoran - combining peas, coconut, jackfruit and carrot - are the most popular choices, she remarked.

However, Ms Hando noted that Muslim influence is present in Malabar and its biryani often mixes spices, onions and chicken, beef or mutton for those craving some meat.

"Seafood in Kerala is fresh and beautifully prepared, from lobster and crab to black pomfret with coconut sauce or sear fish in seasoned coconut milk," she added.

The Guardian recently noted that the Indian state of Kerala also has exotic landscapes, particularly in areas away from the typical tourist environments.
