Its all about the food :
Non-vegetarian cuisine :
|Fish cooked in a traditional form|
|Sanna with pork curry|
Prawn curry was cooked by my sister and me. It was really tasty and good!!
Vegetarian cuisine :
The traditional Food is a popular pickle. Thail Piao, which means literally vegetables dumped with oil and onions and left to boil on the fire wood is quite popular. Karamb (Cucumber salad) and Foka (Lady’s finger combined with cashew nuts). The Appam (rice balls) and Panpole (a type of congee) are popular delicacies made of soaked rice, water and salt. The Thath Bakri is a banana leaf rice dish made with ground red boiled rice mixed with raw scraped coconut and roasted on a tava on a banana leaf.Pathrode is also one of the basic cuisine of mangalore, made from a local plant called as 'kesu'.It is little spicy but worth of eating. It is one of my favourite dish,especially the way my grand mom does.
