Top Delicacies in Kerala

  • Puttu and Kadala Curry - This is a breakfast staple for people all over Kerala, which is a cylindrical steamed rice cake that is cooked with grated coconut in a mould. Usually, this dish is served with kadala curry or ripe bananas.
  • Kerala Prawn Curry - This is regarded as a signature dish of Kerala, which is a prawn curry from Malabar prepared with a blend of black mustard, fenugreek, coconut milk, fennel seeds and green chili. It also includes a special ingredient known as kudampuli to give it a sour taste and raw mango to give it a tangy flavor.
  • Appam with Stew - This dish is also a Keralan staple that is made from fermented rice flour, coconut milk, coconut water, cinnamon, shallots, cloves and sugar, which is similar to a thin pancake that has crispy edges. These crepe-like bowls of stew are a derivative of the European stew, though they are eaten with appams. It might also feature mango, lamb, chicken and vegetables, with the addition of aromatic spices, such as ginger, to enhance the vegetables’ natural flavor. Altogether, the most important ingredient in this recipe is the fresh coconut milk that lends it a sweet flavor.
  • Malabar Parotta with Kerala Beef Curry - This meal includes layered flat bread, called Parotta, that comes from the Malabar region and is made by kneading plain flour (maida), ghee or oil, water and egg (in some recipes), and then beating and shaping the dough into a spiral with thin layers. The bread is then eaten with pieces of beef that are simmered in curry prepared with onions, tomatoes, garlic and other spices, such as cinnamon, bay leaves, clove, cardamom, star anise and black peppercorns.
  • Karimeen Pollichathu - Originally a traditional Syrian Christian dish, this has become a traditional delicacy in the state and a part of it rich cuisine. The pearl spot fish is marinated in a mixture of red chili, lemon juice and other ingredients, wrapped in plantain leaves and then baked, producing a unique flavor.
  • Thalassery Biriyani - This is a very common dish of the Muslim community, influenced by Arab, Malabar and European cultures, and uses kaima—a unique, fragrant, small-grained rice variety. The cooked rice and biriyani masala are arranged in layers inside the dish, where the meat is cooked with the other ingredients on low heat. 
  • Erissery - This is a popular curry in the state appearing mostly during religious festivals. It is made from either sliced yams or raw plantains, and usually includes slightly sweet pumpkins boiled in water with salt, pepper, turmeric, dried lentils and other spices.
