C is for Coastal Food

Coastal_ChickenRice

Coastal Food in India is all about the coconuts! It finds its place in almost every dish that the region has to offer- whether it’s savory or sweet.  It gives a nice touch to the dish , although I cannot stand its overuse.  It makes the coconut redundant and ordinary.

It’s dinner time , there’s Wimbledon on the telly and there’s my loving hubby for company . It called for a weekend indulgence.  Rice and Chicken it was.  But not any Rice and Chicken . A nice coconut rice dish and some spicy chicken curry .

Today to my rescue came Chandra Padmanabhan  She’s written some amazing books on recipes from South India . Her recipes always turn out sumptuous . Infact her books have helped a great deal to help me learn South Indian cooking .

This week for me has started on a sad note to see my favorite tennis player Rafa Nadal crash out of Wimbledon . But cooking food and a good Harry Styles song always makes me feel better . 🙂 By the way , I am near obsessed with his song Kiwi these days . :):)

Till next time then XXX
