It was a last minute decision to go to Tellicherry this time. We thought it’d been a long time since our last visit, so, there we were. It was lucky that we got in by making a booking on the day. Friday, that was.

So, here’s what we had…

ONION BHAJI (green & red onion fritters in an ajwain-flavoured chickpea flour batter, spicy tomato chutney)

KEERAI MACHIAL (split pea lentils & spinach)

POOKOSU URULAKAZHANGU (potatoes & caulifl ower, tossed with onions, tomatoes, ground chillies & coconut flakes)

KATHRIKKAI KOZHAMBU (eggplant in a tamarind, ground coriander & garlic sauce)

Naan bread
