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
gruel with some
vegetable curry and pickles formed the
main breakfast until very recently in almost all families, but it has now been
tea, coffee or other
beverages taken along with dishes like
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.
