Menu for July 23rd: The Flavors of Kerala
Spice Route Supper Club—my labor of love, an idea that emerged from my desire to share my passion for Kerala cuisine—is now blossoming into a restaurant we’re calling Cardamom Hill. I’m excited to announce that we have just signed a lease for a space located in Midtown Atlanta. We plan to open in the fall; more details soon. Here’s a write-up on Atlanta Magazine’s Covered Dish blog about the restaurant opening.
Our menu for the next Spice Route Supper Club on Saturday, July 23, is a compilation of some of our most popular dishes we’ve served to our guests over the last year:
The Flavors of Kerala
A trio of vegetables: green beans and carrots thoren (Kerala stir-fry with freshly grated coconut), beetroot pachadi (a creamy yogurt-based dish), and sweet potato verrakku (a traditional sauté with mustard seeds and curry leaves—and it’s the season right now for Indian sweet potatoes).
Delicate fish cakes, seasoned with ginger and green chile and served with green papaya pickle.
Duck roast with pan-roasted potatoes served with Asha’s fresh mango chutney. With this dish, you can taste why Kerala’s pepper is known as “black gold.”
Kerala beef curry—redolent with ginger, cinnamon, and curry leaf—served with coconut rice.
Vattayapam, a steamed cake with a texture similar to angel food cake, with a custardy pudding of ripe plantains, cardamom and coconut milk.
