Shobha(usha) gowri The Chettinad palaces:
and http://www.karaikudi.com/chettinadhouse.htm and

Driving down the roads of Karaikudi is like a sci-fi movie.It is so warped in time-time just stood stil here as her inhabitants left for far off shores. The style of the construction is unbelievable-small gates leading to gigantic houses that sprawls cross streets maybe two or three.Colors,riotous and shapes and materials -just mind boggling
If you can think eclectic this is the architecture you can visualize--The marble was brought from Italy, chandeliers and teak from Burma, crockery from Indonesia, crystals from Europe and wall-to-wall mirrors from Belgium. The woodwork and stonework was inspired that of the houses in France and other European destinations.

Here is that famous chicken chettinad:
1 Chicken
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
3/4 Inch piece ginger
1 tsp Ground coriander
6 Curry leaves
2 Onions
2 Garlic pods
Black peppercorns
2 Ounces Kurumulaku
2 tbsp Vegetable oil
3/4 Cup peeled and chopped tomatoes
Salt to taste
Cooking Instructions:
Chop the chicken into pieces.
Fry chopped onions, ginger and garlic in the vegetable oil.
Add remaining spices and fry for a few minutes.
Add tomato pieces and salt. Fry for another 5 minutes.
Add chicken pieces and mix well to coat them with the gravy.
Put the lid and simmer the contents for about half an hour.
The mixture would turn almost dry. Occasionally add a little water if required.
Chettinad chicken is ready to serve.

2 Onions
2 Tomatoes
Coriander leaves (2 bunches)
1 tsp Fennel seeds

4 Garlic flakes
3 tbsp Tamarind paste
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Chilli powder
5 Green curry leaves
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Cooking Instructions:

Chop the onions and tomatoes.

Now add chopped garlic, onions and tomatoes.
Saute them well.
