The new ve­gan

The Guardian - Feast - - Feast - Meera Sodha

In­dian food has a north-south di­vide. While the north is (in gen­eral) slow, heavy and of­ten a shade of red or brown, the south is fresher and more brightly flavoured. It’s a mys­tery to me why the north has tended to dom­i­nate our high streets. This pol­lichattu, a Ker­alan dish tra­di­tion­ally cooked in a ba­nana leaf, is a won­der­ful in­tro­duc­tion to the food of south In­dia. Cit­rus, spice and co­conut all vie for at­ten­tion; the re­sult is vi­brant and de­li­cious.
