Kerala

Kerala, a state on India's tropical Malabar Coast, has nearly 600km of Arabian Sea shoreline. It's known for its palm-lined beaches and backwaters, a network of canals. Inland are the Western Ghats, mountains whose slopes support tea, coffee and spice plantations as well as wildlife. National parks like Eravikulam and Periyar, plus Wayanad and other sanctuaries, are home to elephants, langur monkeys and tigers.

Food

This 'land of spices' has many exquisite foods to showcase but there few ingredients that I found common to most foods - coconut, chopped, grated or shaved, coconut milk or paste used in gravies or as oil for cooking. Chillis, curry leaf, mustard seeds and tamarind also dominate the dishes. They've got chicken, mutton, beef, pork and a thrilling variety of seafood.  Masala Dosa, Appam Puttu and Kadala Curry Appam with StewTop of Form Dosa Ghee Roast with Kerala Style Sambar, Idiyappam with egg curry, Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu aka Spicy Chicken Fry, kerala Prawn Curry, Kallumakkaya Ularthiyath or Mussel Stir Fry, Naadan Beef fry or Kerala Style Beef Fry and Malabar Parotta, Kerala style Fish Molee/Moly
