Welcome to the Kerala Kitchen! 

~ A treasure trove of Kerala Delicacies and growing community of those passionate about preserving and sharing Kerala cuisine! ~


Welcome to Kerala Kitchen - a cooking club for those who are in love with  Kerala food!  I started this group with fellow mallu and talented blogger Ria of Ria's collection as a way to meet  foodies who share a similar passion for cooking authentic Kerala delicacies or those with a modern but unmistakable Kerala twist! 


We now have a brand new blog for the event over at  www.thekeralakitchen.blogspot.com

We will meet every month to share the dishes we have cooked that are inspired by the flavors of Kerala. Be it by the traditional Malayali cuisine, that features dishes as varied and delectable as those of the Onam Sadhya to the Malabar parotta or Syrian Christian "ishtoo" or inspired by the flavours of unmistakably Kerala ingredients like the blazing heat of aromatic spices, the sweetness of coconut milk, the tang of tamarind or the myriad tastes, smells, textures and sights that remind you of this little state proudly called "God's own country".
The Kitchen closes on the 30th of every month and will be reopened at the beginning of the next. 


To introduce some friendly food blogging competition, Kerala Kitchen will be giving badges for the foll categories:
  • Top Dish
  • Best Pic
  • Top Contributor : Most number of entries
  • Member: All participants will get Kerala Kitchen member badges
So get your game on!

Basic Rules
  • Cook a dish (or as many as you like)  that is inspired by Kerala. Be it a traditional Malayali dish like Idiyappam or Kappa and Meen curry, or your unique take on it, even a dish that features a flavour or ingredient that reminds you of Kerala but may not be typical Malayali fare (like coconut macaroons maybe?) and post it on your blog anytime before or on the 30th of that month
If you are looking for ideas check out Ria's Malabar Chatti pathiri- the inspiration behind this event! Ria's Konju varuthatu, My mother-in-law's recipe for Noolappam, My mom's Stew in coconut milk or "ishtoo", and my grand aunt's Mango pudding  or any of the entries from the previous roundups.
Some of the typical ingredients : Coconut, bananas and plantains, tapioca/ yucca, mango, jackfruit, lentils, cashews, pepper, cardamom, cloves, tamarind, rice and rice flour, ginger, curry leaves, jaggery, buttermilk... 
  • Email your entries to the host with your name, a photograph of your dish (preferably a thumbnail, no wider than 300 pixels) and a link to your post before or on the 30th of that month. If you don't have a blog, simply email your entry and photograph to the host if you want us to include it.
  • You can also submit  posts you made earlier by simply editing them to include the links to the event. No need to repost them. 
  • In your post (as well as the older posts submitted for the event) please include a link to the host's event announcement post as well as this the main Kerala Kitchen blog:
         www.thekeralakitchen.blogspot.coml
  • Feel free to add  these cute badges with a link to www.thekeralakitchen.blogspot.com to your blog post or sidebar and spread the word that you are a proud member of Kerala Kitchen!
