Researching South Indian Curry Recipes

This Week's Film: Raavanan
Cuisine: South Indian Curry

Curry is a way of life in South India. With its varied religious population and their dietary restrictions, meats, seafood, and an abundant array of vegetables are all featured as main ingredients, along with an exotic array of spices, and generous use of fiery chili peppers. Coconut milk is also a common component in many South Indian curry dishes. Rice, lentils, and flatbreads are served as accompaniments, along with tropical fruit pickles and chutneys.

My South Indian curry recipe will be posted at the end of the week, along with my film review of Raavanan.
