A small tea stall on the Kochi-Kanyakumari Highway without any name plate- Dosa kada which it is popularly known as, serves awesome tea and evening special nadan snacks. Located near Kazhakkootaom Police Station directly opposite to an MRF tyres shop, Special Chaya or Tea, Ela Ada, Sukhiyan, and Bonda are some of the favorite things to have from this place.
If you see a number of vehicles parked in front of a small chayakkada with thatched roof and tarpaulin cover while you travel through Kochi-Kanyakumari Highway, then don’t be surprised for it would definitely be this small tea stall without any name which is known among its patrons, most of whom are highway travellers as Doshakkada. Sometimes during the evening rush hours you might even be left wondering as to what is being served at this small and meager looking place that attracts such a big crowd.
This tea shop has a history of over 50 years and is located nearKazhakoottaom Police Station opposite to MRF tyres showroom on the left side when going towards Trivandrum airport.
Here, they only use earthen oven instead of gas stoves and follow the traditional cooking methods. ‘Special Chaya or Tea’ is the most famous item from this stall. It is prepared by first pouring hot milk into a glass and then adding a thick flavour of tea on top of it with sugar. Though the strong flavour of tea tastes a bit bitter initially, it leaves behind a lingering refreshment with each sip. Use of fresh cow milk is said to another reason behind its awesome taste.
‘Ela Ada’ is a traditional Kerala snack item available here. Comparatively smaller in size than the usual ‘Ela Adas’ you get elsewhere, this one is prepared by wrapping a different leaf instead of banana leaves and is basically a tasty mix of sharkara, banana, jack fruit and jeerakam.
Although there is barely any space to stand inside the shop, wooden tables and benches are laid out for the customers to sit and have their food. Most of the people wait at the tent outside or in their vehicle parked nearby for their order to be served, especially during the peak hours from 4 pm to 6.30 in the evening.
This chayakada has parking space along the roadside for the vehicles to stop by. Taste and quality of food are the crowd-pullers for this ordinary tea stall.
