Crunchy Delights: Exploring the Flavorful World of Kerala Pappadam with Southside Habits

When it comes to South Indian cuisine, one cannot overlook the importance of a humble yet essential accompaniment – the Kerala Pappadam. These crispy, wafer-thin discs of delight not only add a delightful crunch to your meal but also play a vital role in the culinary heritage of Kerala. In this blog, we will dive into the world of Kerala Pappadam, uncover its significance in South Indian cuisine, and introduce you to the authentic, high-quality pappadams offered by Southside Habits.

The Crunchy Canvas of Kerala Cuisine:

Kerala, often referred to as "God's Own Country," boasts a rich and diverse culinary tradition. From the aromatic spices to the unique cooking techniques, every element of Kerala cuisine tells a story. And at the heart of many of these stories, you'll find the ubiquitous Kerala Pappadam.

The Versatility of Kerala Pappadam:

Kerala Pappadam isn't just an accompaniment; it's a versatile ingredient that can be enjoyed in various ways:

  1. The Classic Sidekick: Traditionally, Kerala Pappadam is served as an accompaniment to rice and curry. Its crunchy texture provides a delightful contrast to the softness of rice and the flavors of curries.
  2. Snack-Time Bliss: These crispy discs make for a fantastic snack. Just roast or fry them, and you have an addictive snack that pairs perfectly with tea or coffee.
  3. Recipe Enhancer: Kerala Pappadam can also be crumbled and sprinkled over dishes like salads, biryanis, or even soups to add a delightful crunch and a burst of flavor.
  4. Dessert Punch: Pappadam is widely consumed with payasam (kheer) and banana as the ultimate dessert mainly at the end of a sadhya.
