meal cuisine



My home is in Lovedale, a small town in the Nilgiri Hills. It is around 25 minutes from the main Ooty city and easily accessible by road. I run a private kitchen, focusing on local and seasonal ingredients. I grow my own fruits and herbs and use them in my food daily. I do volunteering work with MOB (Make Ooty Beautiful), a clean up and anti-plastic drive.

I believe in giving the best and freshest food to the guests who visit my home. Hence the menu will always be made with ingredients and vegetables which will be available at that time. Come and get a taste of the Malabari spread I shall cook for you.
In this meal experience you can join me in my kitchen and learn to cook some fun and easy Kerala dishes. Since Kerala food is known for the generous use of coconut milk, you shall learn how to make a coconut milk-based curry or a stew. There is a unique roti (flatbread) made only in North Kerala which I will teach you as well (The name is a surprise :)). We shall end the class with another classic like an Avial (mixed vegetables with grated coconut) or any other mixed vegetable Kerala dish.

The entire experience will last 3-4 hours.

Please note - This is not a professional cooking class but rather an opportunity to cook and dine with a local home-chef. The experience will be as much about the stories around the food and local culture, as it would be about the meal itself.

Please Note - You can join me for a food walk around round and explore the local eating joints. This can be arranged only on prior notice and will be at an additional cost.
