Our glorious state, Tamil Nadu, is known for its rich cultural heritage and vibrant cuisines, isn’t it? The cuisine of Tamil Nadu is known for its extremely bold and spicy flavors, which are derived from the use of age old aromatic spices and herbs. The traditional Tamil Nadu homestyle food is indeed a reflection of its people’s beliefs and traditions along with being an integral part of our state’s culinary culture.
The term ‘homestyle food’ itself brings about delightful sensory images of aromatic curry leaves and a plethora of spices like turmeric, mustard seeds, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pepper etc. This is because south Indian homestyle food is generously peppered with the amazing flavors of tamarind, ginger, garlic, fresh green chilies and dry red chilies so on and so forth, isn’t it? South Indian homestyle meals are traditionally known to be served on banana leaves. This tradition dates back centuries and is believed to have both practical and spiritual significance. The banana leaf not only provides a natural and eco-friendly serving dish, but it is also believed to have medicinal properties that can help aid digestion. It includes a combination of sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and even astringent flavors. How can one fail to mention the popular beverages comprising of tea and coffee?
