    Overview

    If you are looking for Kerala special fish pickle then Hotel Shivamayam is your destination. This small hotel located at Muthiyrundayar, just a kilometre away from Kulamavu dam is open from 6:30 am to 11:30 pm on all days of the week. Popular for different varieties of homemade fish pickles, this place is truly a paradise for pickle lovers.

    Detailed Write-up

    Started in the year 2004, Hotel Shivamayam quickly gained popularity among the travellers within a decade, courtesy of their special fish pickles that are prepared at the home of the owner down the road.

    Hotel Shivamyam that delves in retail business functions from a small village-Muthiyurundayar, situated on the Moolamattam – Idukki  Highway, only a kilometre away from the Kulamavu dam.             Located along a wide curve, this eatery can be easily spotted and offers a spacious parking area for its customers along the roadside.

    You can choose from an array of fish varieties here from Sardine, Kera, Modha, Olakodi, Seer fish to prawns. To serve customers best as per their need the pickles are available in different quantities but its price varies depending on the type and market rate of the fish used in the pickle.

    The preparation of this item is even more interesting to see that is sure to tickle your taste buds.The chefs here cut the fishes into small pieces before marinating it with salt and turmeric for an hour. A separate mixture of ingredients like green chillies, ginger, curry leaves and garlic is prepared. Later, the fish pieces are added to this mix once it turns brown. Finally, a tinge tamarind essence and vinegar is poured to preserve the dish for a long time.

    Though the method may sound similar to the preparation of any fish pickle, the one that you get at Hotel Shivamyam stands out because of its unique taste. The credit goes to Soman Pillai, the owner of the hotel who is popularly known as ‘Pillechan’ among the regular customers here and his wife who gives the midas touch to these lip-smacking pickles.

    This small restaurant with very minimal area serves other Kerala special food items too. Hotel Shivamyam can be your perfect pit stop for a small tea break and to take home the special fish pickles.
