Forget the tired old turkey and bog standard sprouts, it’s time to give your Christmas dinner a serious upgrade. Tharavadu whips up utterly authentic Keralan fare charged with flavour and served in super-duper sleek surrounds. A meal here is a treat any time of year, but Tharavadu’s two Christmas menus are the perfect way to sprinkle a bit of extra spice on your seasonal celebration. Hungry for a Keralan Christmas? Good, because we have a tasty competition for you.

Gather your chums and get ready for a festive flavour explosion


If you’re our lucky winner, you can tuck into a lip-smacking Keralan dinner for 4 people. You’ll have a £200 tab to play with, so there will be plenty to go around. Keralan food focuses on flavours rather than sweat-inducing spiciness, often using ginger, cinnamon and coconut to bring dishes to life. There’s lots of yumminess to discover and Christmas is the perfect time to experiment because they have two tantalising menus for you to choose from.

Need a little help deciding which to go for? If you want to go big, go for their three-course feast. We say three courses, but this bad boy is more like a banquet. You’ll kick off with your own starter platter, laden with delights like succulent grilled prawns, melt-in-the-mouth sautéed lamb and Uzhunnu Vada, a delicious deep-fried lentil doughnut.


When it comes to the mains you’re equally spoilt for choice. Fragrant curries are the speciality here and they come with a smorgasbord of sides, breads and rices to help you mop up the juices. Just wait until you try those spiced masala potatoes! As for dessert? Treat yourself to a sweet-as-you-like bowl of Semiya Paysam. Think of it like a rice pudding with attitude – it’s made with milk, ghee, vermicelli and sugar, and is all kinds of creamy deliciousness.

Want to take a slightly more… ‘merry’ approach to your Christmas dinner? Get the two-course Christmas menu and gulp down some extra bevvies instead! You’ll get many of the same starters, mains and sides, but instead of dessert you can use that leftover cash to splash out on an extra round of drinks instead. We’ll cheers to that!
