In Kerala, this is a must serving in Kallu Shappu/toddy shops (at least I was told so). Well, I didn't have toddy to serve with it :P but when we had lunch we did have buttermilk(little over fermented to have the tanginess) to go with it.
During my hostel days in Kerala, we weren't supposed to have food from outside. But we had secret sources of getting it. We had a hotel that shared its boundary with our college campus. We used to get to the hotel ( standing on our side of the boundary) and climb up a rock pulled up already, just enough to peep to the other side ( i.e. the kitchen of the hotel). With a stick we would beat on the boundary so that the aunty in the kitchen could hear us. Sometimes it used to take long before aunty would appear as an angel offering us food. She would then come out and we could order for some beef fry and Kerala Porotta. We used to have it as if in heaven. Our seniors taught us and we followed it and hope our juniors are also doing the same. Fingers crossed and hoping that this post never gets to the warden :P. Lets move on to the recipe now. Hope you like it.
