Chettinad Cuisine

One of the rare non-vegetarian cuisines of south India, Chettinad Cuisine hails from the kitchens of the Chettiars. It is one of the spiciest, oiliest and most aromatic in India. The cuisine had its origin in a small village called Nedungudi, about 600 km south of Chennai. Like other south Indian cuisines, a typical Chettinad menu is served on a banana leaf with many mouth-watering dishes. This cuisine has several variations of fish, mutton, and chicken dishes, of which the Chettinad Pepper Chicken is a specialty. Besides hot and spicy dishes, the cuisine consists of an array of vegetarian dishes. Chettinad cuisine will surely be a delight for those who like hot and spicy non vegetarian dishes.
