Food in Kerala
The restaurant culture here is quite modern and has only developed recently. The older generation is skeptical of the idea of ​​restaurants; in fact, they find it rather confusing and sad. "Why should you go out to eat when you can prepare delicious food at home?"

As a result, restaurants are primarily about catering to visitors, and they are often attached to hotels. Also, the good independent restaurants mostly focus on the big cities or tourist centers like; Trivandrum, Kochi, Kovalam and Calicut.

Kerala Food Paradises

Almost all mallu dishes are prepared in coconut and various spices, which gives the taste a sharp sharpness that is enhanced by a hint of tamarind. The use of coconut adds richness to the dishes and also absorbs the tongue teasing the hot flavors.
