Food of Trivandrum

While the traditional and typical staple diet remains a bit constant around most of Kerala, the sides, drinks and snacks that vary give the cuisine a shifted and subtly unique form. Popular dishes in Trivandrum include Thoran which is a dry mix of vegetables dressed with coconut bits, a stew in which pototoes and onions are cooked in coconut milk as well as Kalaan which is made of buttermilk, melons and ripe mangoes. Also banana chips are a widespread and popular snack and significant enough to be included in cuisine.
Apart from this Non vegeterian food is equally, if not more popular than vegetarian dishes. From seafood, chicken to beef and pork-you will find all on a popular menu.
