Tastes of Kerala

Hi, I’m Nisha.Here,through my blogs I would like to share some unique, traditional vegetarian tastes and flavours of Kerala. Kerala has produced diverse, natural, nutritious as well as tasteful vegetarian dishes. The concept of homestead farming helped the Kerala women to make these unique dishes. Without using artificial flavours and colours they have produced hundreds of varieties of dishes. The famous “Sadya” in banana leaf has attracted many. To preserve and exchange these recipes is the main purpose of this blog. I’m sharing the recipes that I have encountered and those which attracted me . I am very happy to introduce you to some of the long lost traditional recipes . I hope you will enjoy them.

  • 2 green chilli
  • 4 cup curd
  • 2 cup grated coconut
  • 1\2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1\2 tsp red chilli powder

For tempering,
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1\2  tsp mustard
  • 1\2 tsp fenugreek
  • 2  dried red chilli
  • a few curry leaves
Cook the cucumber along with salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder and a little water. Grind the coconut along with cumin seeds, green chilli and water to a smooth paste. Stir the curd with a spoon and add coconut paste to the curd. Mix it with the cooked cucumber.  Turn off the stove before it boils. Add 1 tsp sugar. Stir it well.Now, heat the coconut oil and put the mustard, fenugreek and the red chilli into it. When the mustard bursts pour it into the cucumber curd mixture. Your pulissery is ready.
  • Making pulissery with both banana and cucumber together is also  nice.
