Kuttanadan Food Festival is back at Ente Keralam
Ente Keralam brings authentic Kuttanadan Food to Chennai
Ente Keralam is hosting the Kuttanadan Food Festival at its restaurants in Poes Garden, Anna Nagar and MRC Nagar until 1st December 2013. The one of its kind festival will feature the exquisite cuisine of the Kuttanadan region in Kerala’s Alappuzha district. The seasoned Chefs Mariya Kutty Chedathi and Paily Chettan will be visiting Ente Keralam from Kuttanad region to host the festival.
Ente Keralam believes in serving authentic cuisine by bringing in the expert chefs of a particular region. Kuttanad is renowned for its picturesque paddy fields and is one of the few places in the world where farming is carried out below sea level. Fittingly, the place also has a unique cuisine featuring some of the best fresh water fish from the Vembanad Lake.
Fresh catch is traditionally cooked using traditional recipes and ingredients in earthenware, which gives a special flavor to the dishes, and these are served with the alcoholic beverage, toddy, produced from the sap of palm trees. Ente Keralam will showcase different specialty dishes recreated to reflect the Kuttanadan region’s cuisine.
Highlights on the menu include dishes like Karimeen pollichathu - pearl spot fish from Aleppey wrapped in banana leaf and grilled, Kakka Erachi - clam meat with onions and seasoning dry fry, Erachi Chap - Tenderloin slices cooked in a mildly spiced gravy, Kuttanadan Kalanji Curry - kuttanadan style preparation of the kalanji fish and Tharavum Roast - duck cooked in thick roasted onion and coconut.
Apart from seafood delicacies there will also be select meat dishes cooked in the traditional Kuttanadan style. The dishes on the menu are priced at Rs. 195 onwards. To make reservations, please contact Poes Garden 32216591, MRC Nagar 32216590 and Anna Nagar 32216589
