"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

    Thanks for linking to MariasMenu. I couldn’t but help check out who is so interested in Fish Fry (one of my favourites!)

    By the way, ‘Sir’, you have a great blog going here… love the photographs – would love to get in touch with you some time. We’re working on a book on Kerala cuisine and would appreciate your advice on what you think best represents the gastronomical delights of Kerala.

    Please do continue your great blogging!

    • Thanks, Jose. It’s great to be able to use your recipes as an illustration of the meals I eat here.
      Kerala food is so amazingly tasty – my only problem with it is summoning enough will-power not to over-indulge!
      Feel free to get in touch any time

  2. At last! A picture of your kitchen. I used Camargue red rice the other day, I wonder if it similar to your Kerala rice.

    • I rarely enter the kitchen: an area totally under Dalila’s jurisdiction. But I am more than happy to sample the delights that continuously stream from it.
      Kerala rice is a broad-grained soft rice. I have never tried the Camargue red..
