Kerala cuisine is a combination of vegetables, meats and seafood flavoured with a variety of spices. One can notice the dominance of rice, coconut, seafood and variety of non-vegetarian dishes and the lavish use of spices like Pepper, Cardamom, Cloves, Ginger and chillies that add to the taste and flavour of Kerala's traditional food.
With the Romans, Greeks, Dutch, Portuguese and many more invaders making their way to the ports of Kerela, it's no surprise that Kerala's food is so diverse and distinct from the rest of the country. There are differences seen in the taste and styles of north and south Kerala- the menu ranges from lip-smacking Mappila biryani, Sadya and brilliant non-vegetarian dishes, you are sure to find something new every day! Kerala is a paradise for seafood lovers; from an array of prawns, lobsters, rockfish and squid among the others, the place won't disappoint you. The Sadya is a substantial feast served on a banana leaf and consists of 24-28 dishes in a single meal. Onam Sadyas are something you should try if you're in Kerala. Other favourite dishes include Avial, Kozhikodan Halwa, Appam-stew combo, Kappa, Puttu-Meen curry and Paal Payasam.
