If ever you go to #Kerala you’ll be fortunate if you manage to go with someone local.
I was fortunate I had an invitation from someone native. And my discovery of #Kerela was that much richer with that much more learning.
Take a case in point, there is virtually no Indian sweet in which we don’t add the fragrant cardamom seed (elaichi in Hindi). But this was the first time I actually saw a cardamom bush.
And sure enough we found pepper corns growing wild as we drove back from Thekkady.
Then I realised I was in Spice Country!
So this post is all about the flowers, the fruit and the glorious spices. A little journey into the interiors of Kerela.
And so we trundled along, on our way to a tea estate, one of the many in Kerala… but this one has a story of its own.
For that… another post.
