Malabar cuisine, which is one of the most tastiest varieties of Kerala cuisine, is distinguished by its style of preparation and unique recipes. A blend of influences from Arab, Brahmin, Zamorin, and Chirakkal cultures give Malabar a full range of vegetarian options as well as a wide variety of non-vegetarian options, particularly with poultry, mutton, and lamb. To accompany, there are a number of distinctive rice preparations, rice breads, and flatbreads. Malabar also has an unusually bountiful selection of traditional snack options. The extreme north of Malabar has a lot of Konkani influence, with distinctive recipes focusing more on seafood.

  • Dum biryani - One of Malabar's most distinctive specialties.
  • Malabar paratha - The local variant of the unleavened flatbread is especially fluffy and soft.
  • Pathiri - A type of rice bread.
  • Rice - Popular preparations include ghee rice, saffron rice, and fried rice.

However today most of the style varities are available through out Kerala and though unique food specialties needed to be tasted at its own place.
