The unique Cuisine of the Region
The coorg cuisine is tantalising on the palette and liberally flavoured with home grown spices. The unique cuisine is been influenced by the tradition, climate and locally available produce. The ancestors of Kodavas were an indigenous warrior tribe that liked to hunt wild boar for food, today it has been replaced by the domesticated pigs. While pork is a local favourite, chicken and mutton are also used. Rice and its various cooked forms is a staple, which comes as no surprise as paddy is grown in abundance here. Vegetarian dishes are made of bamboo shoots, wild mushrooms, jack fruit and raw mangoes are also common. Jaggery, coconut and local honey are often used to sweeten. Kachampuli, local vinegar used as a souring agent is indispensable in Kodava cuisine. In order to truly experience this cuisine one has to stay with a local family, restaurant food just doesn’t make the cut.
