Cooking is an art of preparing food. It is the process of selecting, measuring and combining different ingredients in an ordered procedure in an effort to achieve the desired result. Vegetables are essential part of meal and should comprise a significant portion of your everyday meal. Here, we present you with the traditional Kerala food recipes, which include vegetarian dishes commonly prepared at home. Most of these dishes are made using coconut and coconut oil. Spices are fried and grounded at home itself for more tasty and healthy food preparation.

There is difference in the tastes and method of cooking in different parts of Kerala. Regional availability of food items forms the base for this taste difference. People who live in places where spices like cardamom, cinnamon, and pepper will like to have more spicy food. When the availability of spices and chillies is less is certain regions, people tend to like foods which are less hot.

  Food plays an important role in our health and fitness. According to Ayurveda, cooking is not just about palatable food and flavorful dishes rather it is the key to continuous good health. Ayurveda is based on believe that the universe is made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether that are represented in humans by three   "doshas"("tridoshas"), or energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.  Every individual has a distinct balance, and the health and well being of an individual depend on right balance of these ‘tridoshas’.

Ayurvedic foods are appetizing, flavourful and aromatic and a way of offering love, becoming healing when served in an inspiring atmosphere. The cleansing of toxins that have entered the body and the electrochemical vitalising of the body are main objectives. Ayurvedic cooking thus is an art and a science at the same time, when cooking becomes alchemy and food becomes Tantra.

In Ayurveda food and drinks are classified according to their taste - sweet, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent - and thus by their influence on the doshas (body energies).
 

The Ayurvedic cook derives his knowledge of herbs, spices, vegetables, legumes and so forth from the Ayurveda, which helps them maintain physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony.
