Thoothukudi macaroon is a special type of macaroon which was first made in the port town of Thoothukudi in the state of Tamil Nadu in India. While macaroons are traditionally made from ground almonds, Thoothukudi macaroons have cashew nuts as their major ingredient.
Thoothukudi macaroons are basically European macaroons indianised in Thoothukudi. One, Mr. Arunachalam Pillai introduced macaroons in the District. Local legend states that Portuguese sailors who came to Thoothukudi used local labour for baking macarons who improvised it to the present form. A similar product is also widely popular in the bakeries of Mangalore.. These macaroons also owe their origins to the Portuguese colonisation of Goa and the subsequent migration of Goan Catholics to South Canara.
