It is Portuguese.. Immediately makes you suspicious about what the restaurants are serving in the name of south indian food.
Shall do. Visiting Bombay soon and there is a nice mallu restaurant I know of there.No idea whether you have tried it harsh, but find a mallu restaurant and try Karimeen Pollichatu which is a marinated pearl spot fish which is wrapped in banana leaves and cooked. May just be due to growing up with it, but I can't think of any dish that makes me happier.
Think it really depends whereabouts your local "Indian" community originally hails from.Do you get south indian food in the UK? Or do the Indian restaurants serve mostly north indian fare?

Nah, we're one and the same, a chippy not doing gravy is look a football ground having no goalposts. wtfGravy's often not an option out of the chippy.
Think we're at cross purposes, I'm not talking about home cooking, I'm talking about getting something from the chippy.
When I was a kid, fish & chip shops in Australia NEVER had gravy. Most people would just get plain salt then add tomato sauce at home. Maybe some tartar sauce for the fish.Nah, we're one and the same, a chippy not doing gravy is look a football ground having no goalposts. wtf
That looks dead set amazing.........I'm salivating looking at it!!
Yeah my local does a fantastic (everything they do is fantastic) South Indian Chicken but no idea if it has any basis in the real thing, or if there even is a real thing.Having said that most restaurants will serve South Indian Garlic Chilli Chicken but I've absolutely no idea if it's even remotely authentic.
There is a paratha called the puri paratha (and NO, it is NOT puri, its a paratha). It is the best thing ever with kebabs. Hard to find good of it outside Karachi (when in Pakistan). Highly recommended for kebab rollsMallu food is the best cuisine.
They have a variation of a naan/paratha called the Kerala Parotta which has to be the best indian bread variant by far. Canteen in college was a run by a mallu dude and to this day having naan when I go out for dinner feels like such a huge downgrade. It's lighter than a naan, fluffier and goes so much better with spicy meat curries.
Also love the beef cutlets, beef fry and prawn fry you get in Kerala. Just an all round fantastic place for non-vegetarian food.
A colleague from Lucknow also got a ****lead of homemade seekh kababs coming back from home today which were incredible. Stuff like kebabs are 100x better when they're made at home.
If it didn't look like this:Yeah my local does a fantastic (everything they do is fantastic) South Indian Chicken but no idea if it has any basis in the real thing, or if there even is a real thing.
Nah. Chippy gravy round here is good ****. The only chippy food I wouldn't have gravy with is the Chinese stuff. Pie/sausage/chicken dinner etc has to be swimming in gravy.Chippy gravy is just powdered **** added to hot water. Gravy's for roasts and stuff.
Doesn't look a million miles away from that tbh.If it didn't look like this:
...it probably isn't. The picture is of an organic chicken and that is the full leg. So much better than broiler ****. I don't think I have eaten broiler chicken pumped full of hormones in years now.
