There isn’t much of a preparation required to cook this easy delicacy – there are no fancy ingredients, just common stuff found in your kitchen. There is no complicated technique, but there is some serious “peppery love” involved!

Coriander Fried Chicken
This is not a typical batter fried chicken. This is not a typical Indian chicken fry either! Enough of all the negativity. It takes less than 45 minutes from reading this recipe to serving some great food – try this recipe, and cook some amazing fried chicken. Crispy on the outside, tender and juicy inside – this fried chicken ticks all the boxes! By the way, the name comes from the coriander powder used in the marinade.
Kerala Mixture (Chivda)
Spicy Mixture – This humble snack, in its various avatars, is a popular, omnipresent item in all bakeries and hot chips shops across Kerala. When you have guests at home for tea, the spread is not complete without a serving of mixture. Despite being a big fan of the mixture, I had never thought that one day I’ll make this at home.
You can also make this at home. No additives, no preservatives, and no reused oil! Just a tasty, crispy snack!
Homemade Chicken Curry – Kerala Style
This Kerala Chicken Curry (Nadan Chicken Curry) is from my granma’s kitchen. An all-time family favourite, I learned this heirloom recipe from my mom.
Irumban Puli (Bilimbi) Pickle
This Irumban Puli (Bilimbi) pickle is all about the nostalgic flavours that you can never forget! The sourness of bilimbi and the heat from the chilli powder makes this a mouthwatering pickle.
