Keralites, who appreciate good food, always love to try out different flavours and tastes. The Italian pasta too has found a significant position in the Malayali platter. A touch of our local cuisine would load the pasta dishes with flavours. You could give an occasional miss to the regular breakfast dishes like idli, dosa and appam and replace it with delicious pasta. One of the most amazing features of the pasta dishes is that they can be prepared in various flavours and still taste good.
Aswini Geetha Gopalakrishnan, the sous chef at the Malabar Cafe in Grand Hayat, Kochi prepares a unique pasta dish which would be loved by the vegans. This vegan pasta dish is cooked in the creamy sauce that is usually prepared for the fish moilee. However, the dish, prepared using fresh coconut oil and coconut milk, has all the goodness of the local flavours.
