Kochi’s one-stop curry shop

Sunil Thampan has had an thought for nearly 4 years — a one-stop curry shop, solely for sadya dishes. Kalan, sambar, thoran, avial, payasam, pickle, papadam… every thing that goes on a sadya leaf is accessible, all yr round not solely Onam or Vishu. His father the late Okay Hari Thampan ventured into catering, in 1967, after studying underneath the legendary Neelakanda Iyer, chief cook dinner of the Cochin Royal Family. Lockdown, the time and the assets at hand, of Poornasree Catering, gave him the time to discover this selection and in July, 2020, arrange Curry World in Tripunithura.

“If you suddenly have guests over or have to organise a function at home and are not able to prepare a sadya… the items are available here. The response has been so good that we are opening another branch in Panampilly Nagar on August 23,” says Thampan.

Only sadya dishes can be found, together with poppadum, pickle and payasam however no rice. The dishes are priced between ₹ 150-200 per litre and the payasam from ₹250-300 per litre.

Curry World is open from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm. There can be the pre-booking possibility, however it may be picked up with out as effectively. The minimal portion is half a litre, “We don’t insist on large quantities being picked up or fewer dishes. Sometimes families would need just two or three dishes, not the entire sadya. We have catered to that requirement also,” Thampan says. Since catering is their core enterprise, they can cater to the calls for of the curry shop.

This method works as many individuals desire vegetarian fare frequently, and paucity of time leaves little area to organize a whole sadya at house. Also caterers, pre-booking apart, insist on a minimal order of say 10 sadyas or extra.

This method, if there are solely 4 folks – a sadya will be put collectively. Although the payasam menu adjustments every day, there are two varieties day by day. The dishes are ready within the morning, and if there may be excessive demand for an merchandise or a couple of objects it’s rapidly replenished, Thampan provides. “We have tested to see how long food prepared in the morning will stay, so we plan our schedule accordingly. If refrigerated, the dishes can stay up to two days,” he says. Home supply is accessible for orders above ₹ 500.
