Mangalorean Cuisine

Spicy fish delicacies like kane fry (ladyfish), rice-based preparations and a wide variety of fruits are perennial favourites on the Mangalorean menu. Epicures believe that fresh coconut, chillies and the Mangalorean mind together create culinary magic. Mangaloreans love rice in all forms - red grain rice, sannas (idli fluffed with toddy or yeast), pancakes, rice rottis, kori rotti (a dry, crisp, almost wafer-thin rice rotti which is served with chicken curry as a delicacy), and neer dosa. Patrode, a special dish prepared by steaming stuffed colocasia leaves, is a delicacy not to be missed. Akki rotti, or rice rotti, is a favourite not only in Mangalore but also in Malnad and Kodagu.

Its a lovely blog that you have.. Was surprised by the number of cuisines listed.. I dont know of any non-mangalorean who has heard of Pathrode, indeed a superb dish.. Did u know that there are variations in Pathrode? The brahmin pathrode is different from the konkani pathrode and then there is the Jain pathrode which is different again.. Happy Eating...
