Taste of Malabar
For over 2000 years, Kerala has been visited by ocean-goers, including traders from Greece, Rome, the eastern Mediterranean, Arab countries,and Europe . Thus, Kerala cuisine is a blend of indigenous dishes and foreign dishes adapted to Kerala tastes.
In Kerala, your dishes are served on a huge fresh banana leaf, a disposable platter. Contact with your food is direct and tactile as you eat with your right hand, mixing wet into dry ingredients – a messy business for the uninitiated.
