Kovalam is a scenic coastal town in southern india, where the shore is lined almost completely with coconut palms. Understandably, their cuisine is characterised by the copious use of coconuts. Kovalam mutter is a semi-spicy preparation of green peas cooked with onions, tomatoes, spices and a smooth coconut-cashew paste, and tempered with the traditional south indian combo of crunchy cumin seeds and urad dal.
