Almost all dishes are prepared with coconut here, giving it a milder, sweet, delicious taste. In fact, Kerala has the best coconut chutney in the world! I loved to eat it especially in the morning with a steaming idly! Oh and the appam! Soooo delicious! Appam is a steamed rice pancake also typical from Kerala...And I'm not even going to mention here the Alleppey fish curry! Well ...I guess you get the gist about the food in God's own country!
