Keralan cuisine?

Robert Lauriston Mar 3, 2006 12:20 PM

The post on fresh curry leaves made me crave Keralan food. Are there any Keralan restaurants around here? I'm particularly curious to have a fish dish with kodumpuli made by somebody who really knows how it should taste.

Udupi Palace occasionally has Keralan dishes in the thali, e.g. drumstick thoran.

    2 years ago there was a restaurant called Coromandel Curries in Newark, next to present day Woodlands. Excellent food, but it closed down.

      Spice Hut in Newark and Sunnyvale has some Keralan dishes. The owner is Keralan. It's a fast food set-up and rather variable.

          Udupi is strictly vegetarian, lots of dairy products so not vegan (though some dishes might be). Drumstick (munaga kaaya) is a vegetable, the first time I had it I thought it was really tough cabbage.

              I posed a question about the dish shown below, which turned out to be drumsticks too.
