9780143029502: The Essential Kerala Cookbook

God's Own Country is known for many things, and best of all is its unique cuisine. Mixing coconut oil and spices in a way subtle enough to seduce the taste buds and make one's dance hasn't been enough for the Malayalis, as their culinery techniques have reached cult status. In this book, Vijayan Kannampilly ventures to show readers from the world over how Kerala manages to wow food connoisseurs time and again with its cooking. He shows how to make Kerala's famous mango curry with curd and coconut, and how to leave one's guests with smacking lips as one masters his Tapioca potage. He also reveals the secrets to making a stir-fried banana flower with coconut, how best to serve deep-fried meat of all types, and the maverick spiced chicken curry which is the test of Travancore Kitchens everywhere. From the duck curry to Prawns with potato and coconut and stir-fried crab with coconut, learn how to wow anyone lucky enough to sit at your table armed with an array of recipes taken from God's Own Country itself.

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2003. Softcover. Book Condition: New. A comprehensive collection of recipes that brings together the best traditional cuisine from Kerala. The Essential Kerala Cookbook covers the entire range of recipes from vegetables, meat, seafood, pickles, sweets and snacks, served both a daily fare and as part of the sadya on festive occasions, taking in the specialties of the different regions and communities of the state. In recent times, the coconut flavoured cuisine of the Malayalis has gained immense popularity. Appam and Istoo, Avial and Olan, Irachi Biryani and Pathiri, all these and more are now served in restaurants and homes all over India. The author explains in his introduction to the book, the ancient association of food with religion, the influence of foreign trade and the intermingling of different communities have all combined to make Kerala cuisine what it is today. Interestingly, even though a variety of spices grow literally in their backyards, Malayalis abstain from an overpowering use of these, rendering their cuisine different from other Asian cuisines. Instead, there is a range of delicately spiced dishes, harmoniously balanced and simple to prepare, neither too rich nor too hand, and always delicious. Printed Pages: 304.
