“I came across ice apple drink sold at Thycaud stretch by Tamil Nadu native Selvan. He serves pieces of ice apple mixed with palm wine or Akkani in a specially made palm-leaf cup. Another must-try for the tea lovers in the state is Makkani tea prepared by tea maker Rajan at Vazhiyorakada, Kilimanoor. The taste is different due to the crowned froth created in the glass,” he says.

Karthik also comes out with his recipes. Bamboo shawarma and bottle chicken being the stars of the show.

“Bamboo Shawarma was well-received. Popular restaurants in Kozhikode contacted me asking for the recipe,” he says.
