    Overview

    Popularly known as Pazhamkanji Kada, Hotel Janardhana is a small restaurant located on N.H 47 that got famous for one dish and one dish alone –Pazhamkanji. This restaurant is located at Kuriyodu, Nilamel some two kilometers away from Chadayamangalam, and is open from 6 am to 10 pm everyday. Morning breakfast hours and afternoon hours are the best time to visit this restaurant, which serves Pazhamkanji, Meals, and Chicken Curry, as their main dishes.

    Detailed Write-up

    Hotel Janardhana aka Pazhamkanji Kada as it is popular among its regular customers for its specialty dish, which you won't find even in any five-star hotel. However, for any common Malayali, this is a dish, which brings nostalgic feelings to his mind about the homemade food.

    Pazhamkanji, a household dish is simply a dish which was found out by mothers across Kerala to avoid wastage of leftover rice and is mixed with curd, pickle and chilly. This common dish is served in a special way at this hotel and served to their customers as breakfast.

    This place is named after its owner Janardhanan, and they serve pazhamkanji in a much more perfect way. Here they prepare the rice in the morning and is served with tapioca, curd, pulissery, pickle, chilly and topped off with tangy fish curry. By the looks of travelers who stop at this place to have this Kerala special delicacy, it can be said that Janardhanans little homely experiment has paid off well.

    This restaurant, which is almost 25 years old started serving this dish very accidently, some ten years back when their morning dishes got over, and some of their regular customers asked them to serve them something, as there is no other restaurant anywhere near. Janardhanan served them Pazhamkanji, which he kept for him and his family. When the customers liked it, they asked him to include it to their menu, and more customers came every other day asking for this dish.

    This small one-room restaurant is located on N.H 47 at Kuriyodu, Nilamel just two kilometers away from Chadayamangalam. As this place is very small, it might feel a bit congested and is not that pleasant to sit in for a long time as the smoke from the kitchen fills inside the dining area too. They do not have parking area, but there is plenty of space near to the hotel on roadsides where you can safely park.

    This place also serves tasty meals, fish curry and chicken curry, which are all worth a try for their natural taste. If you are traveling on N.H 47 and looking for some homely food and ok to compromise on ambiance, then this place will suit you just fine.
