Author Notes

For over 2000 years, Kerala has been visited by ocean-goers, including traders from Greece, Rome, the eastern Mediterranean, Arab countries, and Europe (see History of Kerala). Thus, Kerala cuisine is a blend of indigenous dishes and foreign dishes adapted to Kerala tastes. Coconuts grow in abundance in Kerala, and consequently, grated coconut and coconut milk are widely used in dishes and curries as a thickener and flavouring ingredient

Mmmmm. Another great recipe -- and perfect timing, too, as I just happen to have some beef in the fridge with (until now) no specific plan for using it! I simply cannot wait to try this. Stay tuned . . . . ;o) P.S. Thanks for the historical background. So very interesting!!
