    What Makes It Awesome?

    I went to Just Kerala in Andheri East to taste some Keralite food and since then I am at awe of this beautiful restaurant serving beautiful dishes and thalis.

    I started with their recommended starter, paneer chilli fry, and Surmai fish fry. Both the dishes were delish. There was a good amount of spices and pepper used in the making. The fish was so moist that it melted in the mouth and it took me just a few minutes to finish the plate by myself. 

    Then came the thali, for which I had actually come here. Around 20 dishes were served to me on a traditional banana leaf, namely:
    *Banana chips
    *Sharkara varatti, which were banana pieces coated in jaggery and elaichi.
    *Pickle made of ginger
    *Brown rice
    *Sambhar
    * Pachadi which was a Beetroot raita
    *Avail, which is a mixture of beans, carrots, drumsticks all cooked using coconut milk
    * Chicken curry, which had boiled chicken cooked in the gravy separately. The chicken hence was very moist and tore off from the bones easily.
    * A dry Sabzi made of black gram.
    *Theeyal, which was a gravy made of brinjal as its main ingredient.
    *Parappu, which was moong daal served with some ghee on top of it.
    *Bhindi sabzi
    * Rassam
    *Payasam made with milk and vermicelli or seviyan as it is called in North India, perfect in sweetness
    *Pappadam or papad
    * Elaichi banana
    *Buttermilk

    Loved every dish that they serve on the banana platter. It was unique in taste and very authentic. There was a generous amount of coconut oil used in every dish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to all those who love trying Indian cuisines in traditional and royal manner!
