Traditional breakfast at Mother's Kitchen - Karunagappally, Kerala

A few days back we travelled from Alleppey to Thiruvananthapuram by road. A lot of my friends who also love food, had suggested us to visit this restaurant; which is on the highway ( NH 47 ) itself. This place is also frequented and patronized by many Malayalam movie ‘’ stars ‘’ ; just to mention its fame and quality.

We found it very neat and clean, truly traditional at the same time moderately priced. One can taste the original Kerala delicacies like “Chiratta-puttu” which literally means “rice cake steamed in coconut shell” ; in its true form. Other varieties available are “idiyappam” which is the steamed rice noodles, and “Palappam” or simply “appam”. These goes along with Vegetable curry, Egg curry ( “Naadan mutta roast”), and “Kadala Curry” ( which is the Chick pea curry).

Highly recommending ‘’ Mother’s Kitchen ‘’ for delicious Kerala cuisine. You can also buy spices, condiments and cashew nuts….
