Kerala spiced grilled prawns – I grew up in a small town Aluva near Cochin, Kerala, on the lush, spice-rich south west tip of India. As a boy, I spent much of my free time helping my mother in our vegetable garden and then in the kitchen, turning the plants we grown into sumptuous meals and enjoying the ultimate secure and happy, busy childhood.

From very young age what I learnt is, to have good food – we need to respect the environment in which it grows, cooks, presented and served. Being part of this link between farming, gardening and cooking is to experience something very basic yet very profound, something in this world of ours that is good not only for each of us, but all of us at the same time. I made few visits to the local schools here in Manchester, UK to inspire children and their parents to share a love of good home cooking that can colour their whole lives.

About kerala:

My little Kerala is known for its panoramic backwater stretches, lush green paddy fields, highlands and beaches. In my last holiday I been to Kumarakom an hour journey from Cochin is a serenely beautiful and scenic backwater destination, a charming peninsula jutting into the ever-effervescent Vembanad Lake that is dotted with plenty of traditional rice boats and canoes, leaving a scene that is immensely pleasing to the eye. It’s rich in marine life especially the exclusive kumarakom pearl spotted fish, tiger prawns, crabs, prawns and many more. I had fresh prawns from there and sharing you the recipe.
