Common foods from kerala
Masala Dosa, Originally from Tamil nadu, Now a fovourite of India and available in nook and corner of kerala
Palappam, tastes best with Non Veg, especially egg curry.
Karimeen, much hyped food in kerala. Best tastes when properly fried. Personally I don’t find it much interesting.
Paneer masala. Not so popular in kerala. One of my favourites
kadai Chicken. Too spicy
Kappa (tapioca). Best served in toddy shops along with toddy and non vegetarian curry
Ilayappam, sweet dish made up of jaggery, wheat and jack-fruit
Again palappam with potato stew
Beef fry. We keralites believe in either vegetarianism or non vegetarianism. Either eat any living creature or don’t even touch egg.
Puttu, pazham and non veg masala, Tastes good along with kadala curry
Mango pickle (kadu maanga)
Plain Dosa, chutney (madeup of green chilly and red dry chilly), sambar and chutney powder
Traditional Feast of kerala
Paper dosa (Got the name from its thickness)
Idiyappam, best with kadala, egg curry or non veg curries
Puttu made of normal rice
Prawn fry (Konchu)
Ada, made of wheat, jaggery, coconut
Porotta, Keralites main dish for breakfast and dinner, outside home.
Tastes best with egg curry or non veg dishes. In kerala main side dish for parotta is beef fry or chicken roast

you forgot (mallu) Parota?? I like it very much…
Wt is the different between palappam & Appam…
I like appam too… with some spicy curry…
Sorry viswanath i missed it. (updated now). The diifference between palappam and vellayappam-: Palapppam, as its name indicates you must add "coconut milk" which is called "Thenga pal"& it need "appa chatty" (special Tava) for its proper shape and texture. In vellayppam there is no coconut milk as an ingredient but grinded coconut paste is added to the batter. (personally i don't like vellayappam)
I feel… u like non-veg very much???
Can't resist, especially when there is something to wash it down
