View all copies of this ISBN edition:

With its sprawling coffee plantations and acres of green paddy fields alternating with banana and coconut palms, Kodagu (Coorg) in Karnataka is one of the most scenic parts of India. In the old days hunting and fishing took care of most of the requirements of the community, with wild fowl, pig and fresh-water fish forming an important part of the cuisine. Pork and meat, along with fish, continue to be served in most homes today with rice as the staple, although wheat and ragi are also becoming popular. The hundred-odd recipes in this book bring together the best of traditional Kodava cuisine, from spicy vegetable curries and subtly flavoured pachadis to the many varieties of steamed dishes (puttu) that are distinctive to the region. The recipes are preceded by an excellent introduction that looks at the different customs and food-related rituals of the land, describes the special food that is served during festivals and ceremonies, and simply and lucidly sets down the most effective ways to capture the authentic taste of Kodava cooking. The recipes include: Neer Dosai, Thalia Puttu, Akki Roti, Pandi Curry, Meen Curry, Inji Pachadi, Holige Bale, Muruku, Khus Khus Payasa, Wild Mango Curry
