Stuck in traffic. Again. Already missing these #backwatersofkerala.
These lovely ladies smoothly run the Palaikari Aqua Tourism canteen, a state-run project promoting healthy eating and supporting local fishermen. This so-called "self help group" of women cook and serve thousands of meals yearly. Lunch (see second photo) set us back 200 rupees (€2,50) and was simply delicious. #palaikari #matsyafed #womenrunningtheshow #freshfish #kerala #keralafood
Kerala meals. Coconut overload! Beetroot pachadi (beetroot, yogurt and coconut-based); pullissery (again yogurt and coconut, with gourd); avial (mixed vegetables); bean thoran; sambar, papads and matta (local red) rice.
Some chaat last night. Chole Bhature (my son was very impressed by its balloon fish shape) and dahi tikki. #chaatstreet #chaat #streetfood #indiansknowhowtosnack
I'd have had no problem polishing off these by myself, and it was quite a big bowl. Okra podi chips, crispy okra slivers with curry leaves, served with spiced yogurt dip.

What a match. Neer dosa, or "water dosa", paper thin unfermented dosa to soak up the bold flavors of the masala squid fry. And our drinks, too. #mangaloreanfood #coastalfood #perfectpairing #nofilter
Sunday lunch: mung dal, soya aloo and tondekai (ivy gourd) curry. #veganwithouttrying #stilldontcravecheese #cravingwine
The simplest items on the menu often turn out to be the best ones. Papad masala with onions and tomato has exactly the right crunch, spice, sweetness and acidity. #papad #crunch #pubfood #snacks #sundaylunch
Eat your sag. All fresh, with roots, such an amazing smell too.
