  1. Beef fry is sometimes made deliberately spicy so it goes well with kerala porotta or any tandoori bread

  2. My wife went up on stage at one of these shows last month. She's so ugly, they kicked us both out.

  3. Kathakali is not the only eye dance… this is the only art form in the world( if I am correct), you can enjoy three differrent ways. First ,that even without seeing, by only hearing the song… you can enjoy, secondly you can enjoy the drum beatings, and the thrid… dance….

  4. After this lockdown ends all I want is beef and porotta!!

  5. Hope you liked parotta beef roast combo, it is the pride of us keralaites

  6. Hey David can u think of Kerala food now without beef? If u did like Beef roast, u need to try Kerala style Beef Vindaloo. Being an traveller u might be familiar with other places vindaloo. But let me assure this delicacy here is totally in a different league.

  7. കേരള ആളുകൾ നല്ലവരാണ്. തെരുവുകൾ വൃത്തിയായി.

  8. CALICUT Halwa.. and all KERALA natural desserts please… Next trip to INDIA..

    Meet me in POLLACHI, COimbatore… CJB airport via DUbai or SRILANKA or SIngapore-

  9. The beef roast and Kerala porotta was epic!! Now this is the beef roast with porotta that I wished to see you have from the beginning of your Kerala trip. The first time u had porotta and beef curry soon after your long travel was at a random street vendor serving up crude red hot beef curry. This one though was quality all along!!

  10. What they do at kadathanathan is an insult to both the art forms.. It's only to cheat tourists… From Rs. 200 tickets for each show, 100 goes to your taxi / cab driver.Same goes for spice garden visit & elephant ride… All commission basis… Total ripoff… I was a wildlife guide in Thekkady, so I know

  11. David is gifting us some delicious torture during this lockdown……Thanks David…..Stay Safe bro
