Breakfast – Every morning we offer a European breakfast of homemade bread with marmalades and jams. You can have eggs in a range of forms. Of course, there’s tea and coffee. How about trying Shankar’s toast?
Lunch – Most of our guests prefer a light lunch. We use fresh vegetables to make tasty soups. Have you tried a pumpkin soup served from the pumpkin it came from?
Dinner – Our ingredients are locally sourced and are really fresh and of good quality. We create a range of menus influenced by a fusion of Indian, Asian and European recipes. We can offer non-vegetarian and vegetarian menus.
For the Tamil members of our team, no meal is complete without rice in some form. For guests from Europe, a favourite meal is a plate of rice-based dishes, including tomato rice, curd rice and coconut rice. This is served from traditional terracotta pots. Sometimes we have our local form of coleslaw and wadis. If lettuces are growing in the green shaded area, we can also have a fresh-picked green salad, with herbs from the garden.
We are lucky to be living in an area where fruits of all types are abundant.
We pick limes in the garden and have a few custard apple trees. Soon we hope to be harvesting mangoes from our farm. Bananas come in so many shapes, colours and subtlety of flavour. From the markets and shops in Athoor and Dindigul, we can buy pineapples, pomegranates and suporta. If any one is going past the market in Kodairoad, we can also buy fruits from the hills, such as jackfruit and fresh guava. Occasionally we even manage to make a rhubarb and apple crumble!
