Palakkad Recipes

(Palakkad Brahmin Recipes, Iyer Recipes, Palakkad Chamayal, Palakkad Cuisine)

Palakkad is a district in the Indian southern state of Kerala. It is at the border of Tamilnadu near Coimbatore. Palakad cuisine is very famous for its Brahmin vegetarian style of cooking. Though there are few non vegetarians, the vegetarian cuisine is quite famous. The brahmins in palakkad migrated from the nearby state of Tamilnadu. They are basically Tamil Brahmins, with Malayalam infused Tamil as their language. The Palakkad cuisine uses a blend of ingredients available in the region like the coconut, black pepper (peppercorn) along with the traditional Iyer style of vegetarian cooking with extensive use of rice, dall and milk products. The dishes in Palakkad are a combination of Kerala dishes like the different pickles, pradhamans, pachadi, kootan, curry etc. and dishes from Tamil Nadu like varieties of vattrals, adai, kozhukattai, sundal etc. During festivals, many fried snacks are prepared like the thattai, cheeda, murukku etc. Palakkad Brahmins are known for their extensive Sadya preparations too. 

Here we have a collection of traditional Palakkad Brahmin recipes for you, that includes recipes from all categories.
