“Lip-Smacking Dishes of Kerala”, a new Indian cookbook, by Nimi Sunil Kumar. I found Nimi, an Indian foodie, while food surfing Facebook. She has gathered 61 recipes from her native area of Kerala in India and published them herself. I ordered the book directly from her using Paypal ( she will airmail it to you directly). The recipes are nicely laid out and the artwork in the book is beautiful. Most Ingredients are readily available, although some may be only available from an Indian grocery store.The author has two pages on FB, her personal page Nimi Sunil Kumar, and a food page, Nimi’s Culinary Ventures

    Hi nimi. My husband got me your Lip Smacking cookery book when he visited Thirchur recently for his nephew wedding. I found it very interesting and certainly will start cooking the mouth watering dishes. Could you please tell me how I can make the Kashmirir chilly powder. Also what is a yellow curry powder. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks. Christine

    Hi Nimi, Since I happened to read the news that you have been invited in the Frankfurt Exhibition event, I was trying to purchase a paperback copy of your cookery book. If you are interested to publish your cookery book through a reputed Malayalam publisher, please contact. Thanks for your wonderful various Veg dishes.
