Tamil cuisine is a cuisine native to the Tamil people who are native to the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Tamil people are famous for their deep belief that serving food to others is a service to humanity. The region has a rich range of cuisine and vegetarian traditional dishes. Rice, legumes, and lentils are used extensively and the flavor is achieved by the blending of various spices. Vegetables and dairy products are essential accompaniments and tamarind is used as the favored souring agent.
A sappadu (a typical meal) consists of rice with other typical Tamil dishes served on a banana leaf which gives different flavor and taste to the food, then a dessert (normally Paayasam) is usually served as a dessert to finish the meal.
‘Virundhu’ which means ‘feast’, is when guests are invited during happy ceremonial occasions to share food. For festivals and special ceremonies, a more elaborate menu with steamed rice.
After the completion of the feast, banana and betel leaves (eaten with areca nuts and limestone paste) are provided to aid digestion.
Guests sit for a full course meal served on a banana leaf. Traditionally the banana leaf is laid so that the narrower leaf tip is on the left and the wider portion of the leaf on the right. Also the stem of the leaf running horizontally in the center with top and bottom halves. Before the feast begins the leaf is sprinkled with water and cleaned even though the leaves are already clean. The top half of the banana leaf is reserved for accessories, the lower half for the rice. The lower right portion of the leaf may have a scoop of warm sweet milky rice Payasam, Kesari, Sweet Pongal or any Dessert items.
While the top left includes a pinch of salt, a dash of pickle and a thimbleful of salad, or a smidgen of chutney.
