Spice Bowl of India
Besides Gods own country Kerala is also known as the Spice Bowl of India, producing some of the most popular spice of India like pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, curry leaves, ginger, turmeric, tamarind, and many other. These spices are the backbone of many Indian cuisines.
Besides Indian cuisines, Kerala is also one of the major exporter of spice to the world and pepper has been one of the most important export from here for centuries. The hunger for the spice trade brought to India traders and merchants from Portugal, Netherlands and finally the British in the last 600 years.
Once the British came in they also brought in the Tea plantations to fuel the industrial revolution thus making Kerala one of the largest tea growing state in the country. The influence of these colonial powers can still be seen in the architecture, cuisine and culture of the people of Kerala.
During a holiday in Kerala it is highly recommended that you spend some days in the spice & tea plantations and relive the colonial times along with tasting some of the best teas and sampling some of the most delicious local cuisine prepared from fresh spices from the plantations.
