Coconut Chilli cuisine is inspired by the ingredients in the Coorg region, the coffee hills above India’s ‘silicon city’ Bangalore. In Southern India, the countryside is some of the most fertile in the country and lush paddy fields and coconut groves make way for dense hillsides cultivated with coffee plants and pepper vines.
Coorg is where founder, Navina Bartlett, spent many a summer on her aunt’s coffee estate. The hillsides house acres of coffee bushes and there are a huge variety of plants growing in amongst the coffee. Ingredients include coconuts, bamboo, pumpkin, cardamom, oranges and chillies.
Each of our delectable dishes is made with the finest, freshest (and sometimes surprising) ingredients found in South India’s cool, green spectacularly luscious Hill Stations.
