Sadya is the elaborate dish which is a totally extravagant affair. Avial an all time favourite is a happy blend of vegetables, coconut paste and green chillies. Avial’s seasoning is a spoonful of fresh coconut oil and a sprinkling of raw curry leaves, stirred in immediately after the dish is taken off the stove. Kottucurry’ is made out of cubed potatoes, onions and green chillies cooked in coconut milk with plenty of red chilli. ‘Olan’, a bland dish of pumpkin and red grams is prepared by cooking it in thin gravy of coconut milk.
