Can you imagine a town set upon a warm and cozy tropical island in the ocean, saying it has no salt? Well, it happens to be one of the ironies of life, of the people of the beautiful mountain district of Kerala. Wayanad is the milk-shed of Kerala, a land of cows, whither tanker upon tanker of fresh milk goes downhill to satisfy the ever-growing demands of the people living in the coastal cities of Kerala. However, if one searches the racks of any shop or supermarket in the town of Mananthavady, or in the district capital of Kalpetta, you won’t be able to find a single slab of cheese or unsalted butter for cooking.
My children love to have cheese biscuits, cheese pizzas, butter cake, and butter cookies. So, whenever we go on a trip to one of the coastal towns or cities, we don’t have to remind them to stop at a supermarket, dart in and to grab some.
Last week, we visited my in-laws in Thalassery, and found some excellent cheddar cheese at a grocery store to the great delight of my children. Back home, I made some scrumptious chili cheese biscuits. Soon after these photographs were taken, the biscuits were gone! They were indeed the very synonym for deliciousness! Here is the recipe for you. Be sure to bake and enjoy!
