3. Beef roast
4. Kerala Sadya
The leaf is laid with the tail to the left to the guest. The serving starts with savories like banana chips and ends with desserts like kheer/payasam. Remember to fold your leaf away from you as it signifies satisfaction. If the leaf is closed towards you, it would mean discontent.
5. Puttu Kadala curry
A rich splendor for a morning breakfast, Puttu has evolved to variants like Beef Puttu, Chicken Puttu and Prawns Puttu as well. It is a warm and comforting dish and is one of the finest vegetarian Kerala dishes you will ever taste.

Kappa when served with fish curry, is a treat to your senses. The fish curry is often slow cooked in a mud pot with red chilies, onion shallots and tamarind pods. The spice teamed with the warmth can send you on a spiral flavor burst.
