Food adds to the flavour of a destination. And if you have local cuisines filling the menus of all the restaurants there, you know that you cannot miss out on the local food items there. Kozhikode too offers much on that front. Keep reading.

  • Kozhikodan Halwa

    This delicious sweet and rubbery dish is simply a class apart. It is locally called Aluva. It is made from flour, sugar and coconut oil or ghee. Trust us, the dish is so irresistible that you can't resist the impulse to acquire the recipe. Well, take local help for that.
    The famous market complex
    S.M.Street is particularly desirable for this halwa which is available here in almost all the shops.

  • Alisa

    This yummy non-vegetarian dish is made of husked wheat cooked with chicken. It is absolutely a delight to savour this dish, which can be found not just in restaurants but even can be prepared at home.
    Find the dish in hotels like
    Paragon Hotel, Bombay Hotel, etc.

  • Pathiri and Erachi Curry

    Pathri is a very soft bread cooked on a banana leaf with wheat stuffed inside. Erachi curry, on the other hand, is an authentic Malabari cuisine constituting beef or mutton curry.
    It is said that home-made Pathri is very tasty. Most hotels serve this local dish at quite reasonable prices. For example, you can try
    Gateway Hotel in the city.

  • Arabic Cuisines

    Arab influence is very evident in the food items in Kozhikode. So, be it the mandhi dishes (cooked in fish, prawns, mutton or chicken) and the special meat curries or be it the outstanding desserts, Arabic cuisines simply floor you.
    Try the
    Al-Bake Arabic Restaurant on Mavoor or Kajah's Hot Buns at the Marwa Palace to enjoy authentic cuisines.

Yes, we understand that now it becomes even more difficult for you to wait. Well, get to Kozhikode soon and have the taste of your life!
