A colourfull array of South Indian vegetables…green tomatoes, red tomatoes, ripe marrows, cabbage, ginger……

Snake beans or Achinga payar.

It is hard to believe now that Indian cooking didn’t involve any chillies until 16th century when Vascodigama brought it from South America. Chillies Are sold every where dried as well as green and  fresh.

The main ingredients of Keralan cooking is rice and coconut…. rice fields and cocnut trees they are every where…
