RCI - Cuisine of Kerala Round-up

The much-awaited round-up of RCI - Cuisine of Kerala is here. With 91 wonderful entries, it was raining coconuts! Thankyou to each and everyone of you who participated, I was happy to open my email every day and see an entry waiting for me to read. It was a pleasure to see some "first-time-event-participants", some regulars competing for the most number of entries and to gently nudge some dormant bloggers to participate. It also led some new bloggers to discover my blog and me to theirs. Thankyou LakshmiK for giving me the opportunity to host this event, I had great fun hosting it! Those who missed the bus may link their recipes to this post or leave a link in the comments section. My apologies for any missing links, mis-spelt names, mislaid entries or mismatched pictures.
Menu Today and Sia of Monsoon Spice have shared some pretty pictures of Kerala; go over to their space to read more on their experiences in this vibrant state. And then begins the parade of recipes, categorised for easy reference.
