Foods in Kerala

Rice is the staple food of the people.  The routine dietary in a family consists of breakfast, lunch, Tiffin and supper. Kanji or Rice gruel with some vegetable curry and pickles formed the main breakfast until very recently in almost all families, but it has now been replaced by tea, coffee or other beverages taken along with dishes like Dosai, Iddali, Poori, Chapatti and Uppuma. The lunch is always substantial, the most important items of the menu being cooked rice of Choru, special curries and buttermilk. Parboiled rice is used here instead of Kaccha or raw is that in all culinary preparations coconut oil is freely used instead of gingili or mustard oil used in other parts of India. 

The tiffin consists of a cup of tea or coffee and some sweet or delicacy. The supper, which is taken after sunset, consists either of Kanji or similar items as for lunch. When there was acute scarcity of rice in the wake of the Second World War, Wheat was used as a substitute for rice. Preparations of wheat such as Poori, Chappathi and Uppuma are becoming popular. Owing to the poor cattle wealth of the District, milk is used only by richer sections of the community. Pickles of mango, Cherunaranga (lime
fruit), nellikka (the fruit of phyllanthus emblica), etc., are popular.  

The condiments generally used are turmeric, pepper, ginger, cardamom, cloves, spices, chilli, mustard, onion, garlic etc. Hydrogenated oils like Vanaspathi are seldom used.
