Kerala Recipes

(Authentic Kerala Food Recipes, Mallu Recipes, Kerala Cuisine, Kerala Dishes, Malabar recipes)

Kerala is a small state in South India that is known as 'God's own country'. It is a fertile land with many small water bodies and greenery all around. You can find coconut trees, paddy fields, banana plantations, cashew trees and rubber plantations everywhere. Another name for Kerala is 'Land of spices' since many spices are cultivated and exported from here.

The cuisine of Kerala is known for its abundant use of these spices and coconut. It has many popular vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian dishes. Malayalees have a wide range of special dishes from tiffin varieties, snacks, payasams, fish and meat preparations, most of which are unique to the place. On special occasion, people of kerala indulge in exotic dishes. On the other hand, they also enjoy simple comfort food like moru (spiced buttermilk), kanji (rice gruel) and kappa (boiled tapioca). 

Their feast known as the sadya, made mainly during Onam includes a huge spread of different side dishes, curries and sweets. I have shared in detail about the Kerala Sadhya here. Non vegetarian feast also includes a variety of meat preparations - chicken, beef and pork. This is popular especially among the Christians and Muslims (except pork). There are also many famous non-vegetarian dishes that originated in the Malabar region of Kerala which includes the famous Thalassery Biryani, Malabar Chicken Curry etc. Another common scene in most Kerala tourist places is their fish dishes. Karimeen (Pearlspot) fry is popular even among foreigners. They also make many different pradhamans (kheer varieties). Banana plant is a common sight throughout Kerala. Banana leaf is used to serve the meal in hotels, for special occasion and even in homes. Banana leaf is also used to wrap and cook many dishes like Kozhukatta, meen pollichathu, Ilai appam etc. 

Below is a huge list of 60+ authentic traditional Kerala recipes. Do try them and make your own sadhya at home.
