Malabari Moplah Magic
Ente Keralam features Ummi Abdulla’s signature Moplah delicacies.
The Moplah Food Festival at Ente Keralam will feature authentic dishes from the Malayali Muslim community. Ummi Abdulla, a pioneer in Moplah cuisine, will dole out favourites like Arikadukka (Mussels stuffed with seasoned rice), Pathiri, Oratti, Meen Mulakittathu (Seer cubes simmered in red chilli and tamarind gravy) and Unnakkai (Cotton pod shaped dessert served with Nendran bananas). Abdulla’s book ‘Malabari Muslim Cookery’ is popularly known as the Bible of Moplah Cuisine. Similar in flavour to Malabari food, the classic Moplah dishes are an integral part of weddings and celebrations in the Muslim community. The experience is available for lunch and dinner. A meal for two is priced at Rs. 900.
