Overview for 101 Kerala Delicacies
101 Kerala Delicacies is a collection of traditional and popular dishes from different parts of Kerala. The book is an insight into a vegetarian and a non-vegetarian Keralite meal, which is traditionally served on a banana leaf. A complete meal consists of hot boiled rice which is eaten with ghee, a pickle, appam or pappadam, curd and a variety of vegetarian dishes such as Thoran (coconut based curry), Theeyal (a sour gravy curry) or non-vegetarian dishes such as Chemmeen curry (prawn curry) and Meen curry (fish curry). A festive meal, in addition to the above dishes is rounded up with a rice and coconut milk (or milk) kheer called pradhaman, which is also made with fruits and dal. The book also gives a comprehensive account of breakfast dishes. Rice is used as the main ingredient in dishes like idiappams, vellappams, vataiappam. No meal in Kerala is complete without the tongue-tickling chips made from Malabar plantains (raw), jackfruit and the starch rich root vegetable, the tapioca.
