Moplah refers to the Malayalam speaking Muslim community in Kerala and the word is derived from ‘Mappilai’ meaning ‘bridegroom’ or ‘Maha Pillai’, a person held in high esteem. Moplah cuisine is an integral part of Ramzan and auspicious occasions like weddings in the Moplah community. Though the cuisine is similar to the local Kerala food, the special Moplah flavours distinguish the cuisine. The ‘Moplah Food Festival’ displays some of the best creations of Ms. Ummi Abdulla who has to her credit 6 books, including Malabar Muslim Cookery also known as ‘The Bible of Moplah Cuisine’. Available for Lunch & Dinner.
