If a pop up is measured by the (paya)sum of its parts, Unsavoured Kerala is already a winner. Poised to perch at Mustard, Atria Mall this week, the five day food fest involves an art consultant-turned-chef + lesser known flavours of Kerala + a side of Lola Kutty’s stand up. God’s own country indeed.
From September 6 to 10, art consultant-turned-chef Prima Kurien brings the undiscovered flavours of Malayali kitchens to Mustard, serving a la carte lunches and dinners; book now! A proud Syrian Christian, Prima is the founder of Traditional Kerala Cuisine, and her repertoire spans Hindu, Mapilla, and Syrian Christian cuisines of Kerala, which is also reflected in Kerala Kitchens, her first recipe book.
Yes, the iconic Lola Kutty (90s teens, remember her?) will present Wonder Menon (book tickets here), her razor sharp stand up show at 6.30 pm, after which you can stay back for Prima Kurien’s dinner.
Dishes you’ll find on the menu at Mustard's 5 day pop-up include Iddiappam (string hoppers), Syrian Christian Chicken Cutlets, Ulli Theeyil (onion curry), Moplah Mutton Biryani and our favourite - a Mini Sadya, which is a meal all laid out on a banana leaf. The payasum is delicious, but the sweetest sweet dish at Unsavoured Kerala will be Anu Menon’s stand up performance on September 8. Yes, the iconic Lola Kutty (90s teens, remember her?) will present Wonder Menon (book tickets here), her razor sharp stand up show at 6.30 pm, after which you can stay back for Prima Kurien’s dinner.
Kutty Parotta, anyone? Yes, please!
