Kerala flanked by Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea is called as the Malabar area. Apart from its peaceful beauty and the amazing coasts, they are responsible for providing some of the most delicious and flavourful additions to Kerala cuisine. Known as the ‘Land of Spices’, you can only imagine what flavour means to them.
The thing with Malabari food is that, it is so diverse and actually reflects their culture a lot. Since Kerala is a much diverse state which is mixed with different religions with more or less equal ratio of Hindus, Muslims and Christians. Here, Hindus have a largely vegetarian menu with lots of use of coconuts that grow along the coast. Christians are more of a fish and meat eater and the Muslims make delicious breads and sizzling biryanis. How amazing is the diversity?
