Known as God's Own Country, the South Indian state of Kerala is legendary for it's cuisine. With images of fishing nets cast out with the setting sun as the backdrop, houseboats on the serene backwaters, dense jungles with numerous colourful birds and beasts of all shapes and sizes, Kerala is definitely one of the most picturesque parts of the subcontinent. Having grown up in South India with many Malyalis, Pratap's love for the cuisine came at a very young age and so did the desire to learn how to cook it. These dishes are a small selection of his favourite dishes that he learnt cook from friends and aunties over the years.
