If you are a Keralite you may heard about the traditional yummy foods of kallushap( toddy shop) . This is a very popular side dish especially  in Kottayam, Kerala. This is a traditional beef fry used to cook at toddy shops, and to acheive the authentic taste all natural masalas are used.  I got this attractive chicken recipe from a traditional toddy shop in kumarakom in Kerala long back. During our boat cruise or travelling across the village, we can see  a small thatched building with a black board and written ‘Kallu’ boldly in white. This spicy beef fry or non- veg curries are served as a side dish for toddy. The toddy is extracted from coconut tree and is collected in a clay pot. This is served also in clay pots. The most commonly served dishes are mashed tapioca,beef fry or beef roast,  red fish curry, crab curry, mussels fry, duck roast, frog leg fry, pearl spot( karimeen) fry in banana leaf and many varities of lip-smacking food are available in toddy shops. The recipes highlight is hot, spicy and really yummy fry, goes well with rice, poratta etc.
