The land of festivals – Kerala, welcomes yet another Ramadan season. If you are a food lover there is no better time than this festive month to visit Kerala and satiate your craving for a sumptuous feast. Believe me, Ramadan in Kerala is that time of the year when food is a celebration. Post sunset, the bustling streets of cities in Kerala are crowded with people and then you can feel the aroma of mouth-watering delicacies in the air. Read on and find out more about the traditional Kerala special dishes prepared during the festive Ramadan.

Beyond Fasting

The pious month of Ramadan marks a new beginning for Muslims where they refrain from food and drinks during daytime. But that’s not all! This is the month of happiness, blessings, praying and improving moral character. Muslims in Kerala celebrate the occasion by fasting from sunrise to sunset for 30 days and the people here wait until the night before Eid to celebrate it regardless of religion.

Malabar and Ramadan

During Ramadan, one can never leave Kerala without visiting the northern part of the state aka the Malabar. The streets in the Malabar region present a gala feast for foodies visiting here. After breaking fast at sunset (also referred as Iftar) you could see people pushing and nudging near the eateries outside the Mosques to taste the authentic Malabar dishes. There is no such thing as a less-crowded place to have dinner during Ramadan, because every restaurant and every nook and corner of the streets are crowded by the people.
