Eravikulam National Park

Overview

This serene hill station, nestled in the Western Ghats in the Idduki district of Kerala is empowered by its bountiful verdure of tea and spice plantations, which drive its economy as does tourism. Not only are its natural landscapes a magnet for visitors here, but the culinary offerings of the Munnar twist to traditional Kerala dishes also add a nice edge to meals here. Watching a local homemaker prepare a Munnar style meal, and its end result is an awesome experience.

Rice and fish, cooked in coconut oil are staple fares in these hills, but there's a whole lot of other delicious dishes to try such as the appam and stew, puttu and kadala curry, beef fry with Malabar porotta, Nadan Kozhi Varuthathu (Spicy Chicken Fry) and     Idiyappam/ noolappam that unique dish made with rice flour, salt, and water and transformed into thin strands of sevai that are entwined together and served traditionally with egg curry.
