Announcing Kerala Kitchen

It's been a while since I last posted.Blame it on my visit to my hometown which always makes me oblivious to the net-world.I had grand plans of posting one Onam special dish a day and all such daydreams which obviously didn't see the light of the day(or the blog!).I didn't want to delay announcing the event further because it is the festive season and many of you would be busy preparing traditional Kerala dishes,what with Onam being just a few days away.

So prepare a traditional(or contemporary!)Kerala dish and send it to The Kerala Kitchen.I have decided on a monthly challenge too.Prepare any kind of Payasam and send it to us along with your other entries.Here are the rules--

  • Here at the Kerala Kitchen, we like to keep things simple, so there are no strict rules as such, and anyone can join in all the fun! It doesn't matter if you have never tried Kerala cuisine and want to learn all about it, or if you are a Pachakarani who would like to share your vast knowledge with some enthu newbies :) You are not restricted from sending your entries to any other contests, in fact we actively encourage you to participate in as many as you can!
  • Simply cook a dish (or as many as you like)  that is inspired by Kerala. Be it a traditional Malayali dish like Idiyappam or Kappa and Meen curry, or your unique take on it, even a dish that features a flavour or ingredient that reminds you of Kerala but may not be typical Malayali fare (like coconut macarons maybe?) and post it on your blog anytime before or on the 30th of this month.
  • Post the recipe on your blog and add your links to the comment box of this post. If you don't have a blog, simply email your entry and photograph to divyakudua@gmail.com.
  • In your post please include a link to this event announcement post as well as this blog

  • Here are some Kerala recipes for a kickstart!!Happy cooking!!Looking forward to seeing your festive entries!!
