Thattukada: anything not spicy?
I know it is a Keralan restauarant and therefore it's unlikely, but I would like to take my mum, who is from Karanataka there and as she has gotten older she can't eat anything spicy which is a real shame for her.
You can definitely make it work, but it also depends on what you mean by not spicy. Not even the slightest trace of heat or strong spice or just a bit of it. The chicken biriyani is almost completely without spice and is actually a bit sweet because they cook a layer of dried fruit in when they do it (they do it in large batches with layers of each ingredient; Hyderabadi style.) I wouldn't recommend thalis and things like that though as their sambar and many of their chutneys are quite hot. Their curries are quite spicy though. Others with lower spice tolerance should chime in and save me as I can't think of anything but the biriyani...
They were closed today in mourning for Bombay, but I don't see why they wouldn't be open tomorrow. They told me they'd be open at 5pm today, but I couldn't make it back for then and had to opt for Kebabish.
She makes a mean biriyani herself as well as idili, sambar, chutney and dosas. It might be interesting to try the biriyani to see how she rates it. I myself have no heat restrictions so am look forward to sampling widely. She loves fish and the whole baked fish sounds like something she would like. If I picked out the flesh and avoided the marinade would that be spicy?
