Enjoy the Kuttanadan Food Festival at Ente Keralam
Ente Keralam is hosting the Kuttanadan Food Festival from 19th November until 2nd December at its restaurant in Ulsoor. The one of its kind festival will feature the exquisite cuisine of the Kuttanadan region in Kerala’s Alappuzha district.

Expert chefs Jayaprasad and Aji Joseph will be hosting the festival. Kuttanad is a renowned region known 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 fishes 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 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 will include starters like Konju pollichathu, jumbo prawns wrapped in banana leaf and Konju Ularthiyathu, a traditional sautéed prawn dish with coconut and tamarind. Authentic must-try gravies are the Kuttanadan tharavu mappas, which is duck cooked in a mappas gravy with onions, coconut and spices, Chemballi pacha kurumulagittathu, a curry made with Chemballi, a local fish of Kuttanadan, cooked in a ground green peppercorn and garlic paste, Karimeen moilee, Pearl spot fish cooked in coconut milk and ginger and Kuttanadan kalanji curry, a special regional curry cooked with ‘kalanji’ fish. Apart from seafood delicacies there will also be select chicken, duck and beef dishes cooked in the traditional Kuttanadan style.

The dishes on the menu are priced at Rs. 200 onwards. For reservations please contact Ente Keralam on 32421002.
