Kerala Cuisine Contest 2020

Kerala, globally renowned as the God’s Own Country, is celebrated for its eclectic and diverse cuisine experiences. Kerala Cuisine Contest 2020 (KCC2020), the International Online Cooking Competition powered by Kerala Tourism, is a unique campaign aimed at inviting travellers across the globe to experience Kerala's yummy delicacies. Some of the iconic and traditional dishes of Kerala are featured on this page. All you need to do is to cook any of these dishes at home and share the video with us. Exciting prizes await you!

Of course, it's not about the taste or the aroma but the way you celebrate Kerala in your kitchen. As the theme - ‘Embrace Kerala in Your Kitchen’ - suggests, KCC2020 is mainly about how best you can bring in the elements of God's Own Country's traditional culinary styles in your video presentations. It's also about the way you slice the vegetables or meat, the utensils you choose, the way you serve, the cutlery you use, the spirit of the family members, and above all, the sense of togetherness and camaraderie on display once you relish the dish at home.

Now, choose your favourite dishes, roll the camera and begin cooking!
