Full description
Visit a local’s home for a cooking demonstration followed by lunch/dinner featuring Tamil Brahmin Cuisine (South Indian vegetarian). Tamil Brahmin cuisine is based on the concept that food shapes the personality, mood and mind. In a Brahmin household food is always cooked with a great deal of attention to cleanliness; to the balancing of nutrition, flavour, texture and variety. All this coupled with the knowledge of the Divine as the first ‘taster’ of the day’s meal. Different spices play an important role in the dishes. Fenugreek as a digestive aid, cumin for its multiple usages, dried legumes and beans as nature’s tiny capsules of proteins, pepper for colds and coughs, turmeric as a healer and every ingredient is used in the cuisine has a purpose that goes beyond taste and texture. Rice and dal is usually the staple diet - the food is characterized by dishes cooked on the griddle such as dosas, thin broth like dals called sambar. The cuisine is also known for its heavy use of 'kari' leaves, tamarind and coconut. The menu can be customized to meet your diet preferences and do let us know if you have any food allergies.
