Kodava Oota

Experience the culinary magic of Coorg cuisine from the land of the Kodavas at The Coorg Food Festival at Novotel Bengaluru Techpark. Executive Sous Chef Pradeep Rao and Guest Chef Anjali Ganapathy from Pig Out are showcasing some of the Kodava specials with authentic flavours and taste that will take you to the homes of the Kodavas.
Dig into a platter full of rustic and rare ingredients from Coorg as you embark on a culinary journey with the specialty chefs promising a truly delectable feast. Begin with the cocktails like Kudava Sangria, Two States, Ummathat or Imli Mojito or mocktails inspired from the location itself – Outer Ring Road, @560103 and Mango Chatka. Dig into some Koli Nallamallu Bartad, loaded with locally harvested black pepper masala that pairs perfectly with the cocktails. Bite into Kadambattu, a thoughtful composition of rice flour and semolina, subtly rolled into tiny balls and then steamed in a traditional style with Anjali’s special Pandi Curry. No Kodava cuisine is complete without this village-style pork curry that is cooked to perfection with locally harvested black pepper seeds, roasted spices and finished off with kachampulli. Also try the Inji Pachidi, the traditional raitha with inji or ginger that tastes best with the traditional Mutton Pulav. End the meal on a sweet note with Coorg Kulae Puttu made from jackfruit, rice flour and jaggery.
