KERALA KITCHEN 2014 ON 26/02/2014
Kerala is known as the "Land of Spices". Even the Kerala cuisine is known for its spicy and hot foods. The Kerala food is generally fresh, aromatic and flavored. The staple food of Kerala, like most South-Indian states, is rice. Unlike other states, however, many people in Kerala prefer parboiled rice (Choru) (rice made nutritious by boiling it with rice husk). Kanji (rice congee), a kind of rice porridge, is also popular. Jack Fruit, called Chakka and Tapioca, called Kappa in Kerala is popular in central Kerala and in the highlands, and is frequently eaten with Chammanthi. Almost every dish prepared in Kerala has coconut and spices to flavour the local cuisine giving it a sharp pungency that is heightened with the use of tamarind, while coconut gives it its richness, absorbing some of the tongue-teasing, pepper-hot flavours. Studies say that our new generation is forbidden from tasty and healthy Malayalam food habits whereas our generation unintentionally force them affix with foreign delicacies. Trends observed among Malayalees is that they are fascinated for takeaway foods and an inclination towards other cuisines including Chinese, Arabian, Italian, Spanish, Mexican etc. The reason is lack of time and awareness of our traditional dishes. The Dept of Commerce has realized this notion and has implemented an action plan - KERALA KITCHEN 2014 as a answer to a simple question is, "If we do not protect our traditions, then who will? This portal provides Kerala recipes which anyone can cook without spending lot of time in kitchen. This portal is not intended against any foreign food traditions. It is equally qualitative to Kerala recipes. KERALA KITCHEN 2014 - a traditional food fest conducted on 26.02.2014 provided a chance for the students to recollect those traditional foods and rejuvenate their taste buds. The recipes provided in this traditional food fest maintained a clear balance between the ingredients and the taste by completely avoiding artificial flavors and colors. Thus the main focus was on health having a minimal compromise on the taste factor. The recipes were Kanji, Kappa Puzhukk , Chakka Puzhukk, Vazhapinndi thoran and Ulli Chammanthi. Tradtitional cookware and utensils were used to cook the food. All the recipes provided were tested and tasted by Mr.K.M.Hamza,Treasurer,Al-Ameen Educational Trust, Mr.K.M.
