Theeyal is a traditional Kerala delicacy made with roasted coconut, spices and tamarind. When made with bitter gourd, this becomes a treat for your taste buds. The mellow, yet distinct bitterness adds depth to the tangy spice flavours. Let me share an easy-to-make take on the traditional Pavakka Theeyal recipe that’ll help you cook a healthy, yet tasty dish with bitter gourd (Karela).

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!
