Chicha Morada and Roasted ChickenChicha morada is a typical Peruvian corn-based beverage that is popular among all the regions. Unlike its cousin chicha de jora, this is a non-alcoholic drink. Chicha morada is prepared from a base of Andean purple maize. Traditionally, the purple maize is boiled with chunks of pineapple, quinces, cinnamon, and cloves until the maize is soft and the liquid has taken on a deep purple color. Pardo's Chicken is a classic Peruvian food chain that specializes in chicha morada. Try it with the pollo a la brasa – the Peruvian roasted chicken.
