I have now been in Kerala for five days, eating each meal with my hands just like mum used to when I was a kid, every meal eaten even the most simple of meals inspires me to continue my journey and as I deepen my understanding of the food and culture of my mothers home the more I love it.
6 days I have been in India, surviving general class I journeyed by train from Cochin to Goa bodies pressed against each other invading personal space in a way that could only considered invasive, but for a unspoken etiquette that abounds in this world outside our norm.
In Mumbai I learn about cooking by feel with Sandeep of blog Esca Brahma and share two recipes puli mulagu prawn and tamarind curry and kokum kadi a refreshing coconut and kokum digestive drink.
To start us off let me share with you the first Keralan dish I truly nailed and the start of my obsession. Meen Curry!! A spicy coconut fish curry that punches you in the face yet is surprisingly subtle.
