Konkani & Malabar Style Recipes

Konkani and Malabar's styles in cooking refer to the culinary traditions of two distinct regions of India.

Konkani cuisine comes from the Konkan region of India, located along the western coast and includes parts of the states of Maharashtra, Goa, and Karnataka. Konkani cuisine uses seafood, coconut, and kokum (a souring agent). Some popular Konkani dishes include fish curry, prawn fry, and sol kadhi (a refreshing drink made with kokum, coconut milk, and spices).

Malabar cuisine comes from the Malabar region of India, located in the southern state of Kerala. Malabar cuisine is known for its use of spices, coconut, and seafood and its unique blend of flavours influenced by Arab, Portuguese, and Dutch cuisines. Some popular Malabar dishes include biryani, fish curry, and appam (a pancake made with fermented rice batter).

Konkani and Malabar cooking styles are known for their bold flavours and use of fresh, local ingredients. They are also heavily influenced by the coastal regions where they originate, with seafood playing a prominent role in both cuisines.
