In 1568, the Raja of Kochi gifted land to a tiny religious community, so that they have a place of worship away from home. This community was fleeing persecution in Spain and Portugal and arrived in India in the 15th and 16th centuries and were given the name Paradesi or a foreigner in Malayalam due to their descent. They built a monument which is probably the best homage to the diverse influences that built Kerala. This week, in the twelfth episode of Fabulous Foods, we travel to God’s own country, Kerala, and discover how Portuguese and Arab influences have shaped the cuisine of the state.
