It's good for a change to find an Indian restaurant with a menu quite different from the standard fare of curries and tandoori grills. A small group of restaurants, one of which is in Tunbridge Wells, specialises, instead, in the food of Kerala in southern India. On the menu are various savoury pancakes and breads. Something I had never tried before was cashew nuts fried in a spicey batter.
A fine Easter Sunday, and the sounds are different. Footsteps are more leisurely. Voices are slower and more relaxed. There is cheerfulness and occasional laughter in the air.
Shallots peeled and caramelized slowly in a saucepan, until they are soft and golden brown.
