“Thakkara” – closely resembles “Thakkaram”; a colloquial used by northern Malabar Muslims for the feast (salkaram) given to the Puthiya Maappila or Puthiyaappilla the groom. It is needless to add that Malabar Muslims are renowned for their elaborate eating habits and hence their scrumptious wedding feast & festivities.
The coast of Malabar has been influenced by Arab traders, French rulers, native Zamorins and Namboodiris during its heydays. The region therefore has been blessed with a good blend of Muslims, Christians and Hindus absorbing the rich taste from all and catering to the palates of a diversified community.
Each coastal town in these parts of Kerala has their own unique 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.

While in almost all the other regions, the long-grained rice, mostly basmati, is used; here we make the Biryani with “Kaima” “Jeerakashala” — the short grained rice.
