About Us

Malabar is a region with a long culinary history, a consensus on what constitutes its authentic cuisine is stoking a debate. Strong trade links with the Arabs, the Europeans, and even the Chinese for centuries have collage about thakkarainfluenced their culinary character and it has seeped into the Malabari cuisine a lot deeper.

Each coastal town in Malabar has their own distinct way of preparing food and naming them. They’re unique by their complicated methods of preparation and ingredients used that bring about the signature Malabari taste. Recipes handed down from grandmothers of different generations are religiously followed even to this day.

Malabar Biryani, has specialty with its two variants, the Kozhikode Biryani and the Thalassery Biryani, which can rival the best in the country, be it the Hyderabadi or the Awadhi (Lucknowi) versions. The Malabar Biryani with definite Arab influences manages to create its own identity. “The primary difference is the type of rice. While in almost all the other regions, the long-grained rice, mostly basmati, is used, here we make the Biryani with kaima — the short grained rice.

If there is one dish we would say typically of Malabar, it is the Pathiri. The wafer-thin pancake made with rice dough is undeniable part of the “Salkaaram’ in muslim household when the groom comes to stay in bride’s house. Pathiri comes in all forms – fried, steamed, roasted, and baked etc.

Similarly, stuffing as a culinary practice is popular in Malabar. From chicken and Pathiri to mussels (“Kadukka”) and banana, everything gets a taste of stuffing here.. Stuffed chicken (Kozhi Nirachath) and stuffed fish (Meen Nirachath) are some of the delicacies you’ll find at Thakkara.
