    Recipes and recollections from the Syrian Christians of Kerala

    Since ancient times, seafarers and traders have been drawn by the lure of spices to Kerala. Saint Thomas also travelled this spice route, converting several Brahmin families who later intermarried with Syrians who had settled here; thus was born the vibrant Syrian Christian community of Kerala. Today, ayurvedic massage resorts and backwater cruises make this scenic land a top tourist destination, and spices still draw both travellers and gourmands to its rich culinary heritage.

    It is this legacy that The Suriani Kitchen brings us, through 150 delectable recipes and the unforgettable stories that accompany them. Featured here are such savoury delights as Meen Vevichathu (Fish Curry Cooked in a Clay Pot), Parippu (Lentils with Coconut Milk) and Thiyal (Shallots with Tamarind and Roasted Coconut). Equally mouth-watering are a variety of rice preparations, Puttu (Steamed Rice Cake) and Paalappam (Lace-Rimmed Pancakes), and tempting desserts like Karikku Pudding (Tender Coconut Pudding).

    Authentic and easy to prepare, these recipes are accompanied by a guide to spices, herbs, and equipment, as well as a glossary of food terms. Interwoven between these recipes, in the best tradition of the cookbook memoir, are tales of talking doves, toddy shops, travelling chefs and killer coconuts. Full of beautiful photographs, charming illustrations, and lyrical memories of food and family, The Suriani Kitchen is a delicious, memorable read.

    A valuable addition

    Absolutely love this book.

    A keeper for anyone who has an interest in Syrian christian cuisine, or interested in trying out other cuisines.

    It has been atleast 5 years since we purchased this book and still find ourselves referring this book.

    Well written, with names of commonly used ingredients translated to English as well.

    Hats off to the author.

    Syrian Christian Style

    This cook book sheds light on the not so familiar part of Indian cuisine i.e. Syrian Christian style. This is an excellent cook book for non vegetarian Kerala dishes. Easy to cook, recipes have turned out to be delicious. My favorite is the mutton peppery fry!
