Curry Leaves & Coconut – South Indian

CLC

The food of Southern India and Kerala in particular is my favourite Indian cuisine, fragrant of curry leaves and coconut, alive, bright, fresh and vibrant all at once.

By comparison with the better known, meaty tandoor based cuisine of the north, southern food is lighter and predominantly vegetarian and if meat of any kind  is eaten it is usually chicken or seafood .

In this class we celebrate this region with a range of simple home style dishes by preparing the following dishes:

Spicy Vegetable Sambar,  Lacy “Appam” Pancakes, Cucumber Pachadi, Beetroot & Cauliflower Poriyal’s,  Prawn “Molee” and Keralan Masala Chicken

Duration:       4 hours                                                     Price:             $185.00
