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.
