We did a house boat cruise in Aleppey back water recently
Let me explain the food part of a houseboats total three staff will be there which includes a cook and two crew members.
And the cook who will be interacting with guests and will be of great important to guests , because he will be making food , serving it in a hygienic and professional way but keeping a family environment .Being a locale and experienced , he can explain the scenic beauty, culture ,tradition, sightseeing places and local waterways and safety precautions . Our chef can easily interact in English, Hindi ,Malayalam(Our language)and many regional languages.
We jointly made this squid masala and we had with a glass of Toddy an alcoholic drinks from Coconut .

    I'm thinking maybe with preserved lemon and saffron. Can you suggest anything else I might want to include?

    pauljoseph, your recipe is lovely. When you give these wonderful photo documents that include so much more than the recipe, it's a real treat, both culinary and otherwise. Your treatment of recipes reminds me of the food photo journeys of the Time Life Foods of the World series. Thanks so much.
