The Chettinad region of Tamil Nadu in South India is a culinary center that boasts of a robust history in the spice trade dating back to the 18th century. Merchants from the region traded aromatics and spices across southeast Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
Mushroom Chettinad is loaded with some of the bold spices typical to cuisine like fennel, pepper, cumin, cardamom, and cloves. Coconut is a popular ingredient and it is used in a variety of different ways in this region. It can be used raw, dried, or the flesh can be blended with water to create fresh coconut milk. The sweet flavor of coconut helps balance the heat of the spices and gives texture to the curry.
