Chettinad cuisine is truly one of the most flavourful sub-cuisines of India. For the uninitiated, all the Chettinad food has its origin in the Chettinad region of Tamil Nadu. The cuisine was developed by the Nattukotai Chettiars or Nagarathars community. The distinct quality of the cuisine has made it a hit among food enthusiasts. What makes it so special, you ask? In our view, it is the composition of spices which does not make the dishes overtly fiery but very feisty. Once you master the Chettinad masala, you can pretty much toss in anything into it and have a winner at hand. Take, for instance, this mushroom Chettinad.
