The centuries old mattanchere spice is a popular Christmas cake. Fort Kochi is a hub of such thriving spice trade.
It’s a joyful season and we keep up the tradition!! The Mattanchere spice cake is a great tribute to the famous spice market in Mattancherry. It’s not a quick task; ingredients are sourced from far and wide early at the beginning of the year. It’s a huge process and so, the taste is mind-blowing. We get the real taste of yummy plum cake with deeply soaked raisins and other spices. Honey infused raisins; candied orange peel, candied ginger flakes, nutmeg, etc are the major ingredients.
It’s a traditional gift hamper for your Christmas celebration!! Get a taste of history in every single slice!!
