After a week of revelry and eating out, we were in need of a home cooked meal. And while we wanted it to be light, we still needed it to be flavourful and fulfilling. And when the idea of a Kerala Vegetable Stew sprang into our minds, it seemed just perfect.
The Onam Sadhya seems like a representation of life on a Banana leaf, filled with different textures and flavours – sweet, salty, sour, bitter – all in one meal. Sadhya means feast in Malayalam and it literally is!
The Bengali Aloor Dum is not just differently pronounced but it is a whole world away in terms of taste. Baby potatoes cooked to a perfect bite in a rich, thick base that is fragrant with whole and ground spices. We cleaned up every surface this delicious dish touched.
