Thanjavur for left us spellbound not just for the temples that the Cholas built but for the food the Marathas redefined in the region. A fun group of people from different parts of India were on this culinary holiday I put together. From savouring several centuries old recipes to understanding the local art and culture. From Rava Dosai, Kadappa, Ashoka Halwa, Sarbath to Darasuram Sarees, Chola Bronze Casting, Thanjavur Veena making we did them all. These guys were hardcore foodies for all what we spoke from breakfast till we hit the sack was FOOD!

Always time for some cooking demonstration – Some of the recipes I uncovered from Royal Manuscripts from the Thanjavur Palace were Burani and Yam Kootu Curry. I also showcased Kadappa, Poori Payasam/ Poori Ladoo 🙂
