I chanced upon your blog. A very good collection of recipes useful to young brides and bachelors. I request you to add one heading as "Palakkad iyers' traditions" in your site and give details of the customs and our practices as they are slowly getting forgotten. I want the younger generations to continue the Palakkad style for years to come.

It will be useful if the recipes are given for these items in detail. Non malayalis can prepare these items on Onam and celebrate Onam

Thanks or doing a wonderful job of documenting our Palakkad recipes. I was looking for a particular recipe of kalathu podi (dry chutney powder) which my mom used to make with kollu and sesame. The unique taste is still in my memory. Thanks, Vasanty

Thank you for the Thiruvathirai Kali recipe. I was visiting India this January 2017 and was alone in my brother's house during Thiruvathirai. Looked up your Web site and made the Kali. It turned out great.

I was born into a palakkad Iyer family, was raised in North & East India. I did not learn any palkkad recipes from my mom. Now that I have settled in the US, your blog is my source for traditional recipes that I crave. Thank you so much.

Thank you for your time and efforts to preserve & share traditional Palakkad Iyer recipes. Though born into a Palakkad Iyer household, I was raised in North India. While I enjoyed cooking, I never learned traditional recipes from my mom. Now that I've moved out of India, your blog is my source for traditional Palakkad cooking.
