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.

Cook the pineapple pieces along with chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt in a low flame without adding water. Add the jaggery. Mix it well and stir it for some time. Grind the coconut and cumin seeds along with a little water to a smooth paste. Put the mustard seeds into this and grind it for just a moment. Add this to the cooked pineapple and mix it well. Turn of the burner.  Heat coconut oil in a frying pan and put mustard and dried chilli pieces into it. Allow the mustard to burst. Now pour it into the pineapple coconut mixture. Mix it well. Garnish it with curry leaves. Your pachadi is ready.
