The cuisine of Kerala is very distinct from the usual flavours dished out in the rest of Insdia. Cooking in Kerala is highly experimental where you always make discoveries be it related to the aromas or the colours or the flavours. People from the distant shores often landed in Kerala thus influencing the cuisine pattern of the region. So if you are also going to visit the state, make it a point to savour the local tastes.
The people of Kerala like to enjoy delicious and nutritious breakfasts in the form of Puttu, Kadala curry, Appam, chicken stew, Iddiappam and vegetable stew. Puttu is made out of rice flour with plenty of coconut pieces and served with tasty kadala curry and fish curry. Appam are soft pancakes made out of rice and coconut milk and served with the Kerala chicken stew, while Iddiappams are noodle like rice cake served with sweet coconut milk or vegetable stew. Other specialties of Kerala cuisine are Sadya, Karimeen Pollichathu, Fish Moilee and Malabari Biryani.
Sadya and Malabari Biryani are widely enjoyed and are hot favorites for tourists visiting Kerala. Sadya is mainly prepared for marriages and festivals and comprises as many as 40 vegetarian items. Its unique characteristic is that it's served on a plantain leaf. Malabari Biryani is the fried rice mixed with spicy meat, chicken, fish or prawn and topped with hot spices.
