17 Oh-So-Relatable Things That Every *Mallu* Will Get!

Lush greenery, picturesque backwaters and literacy rate that is worth a million smug faces - Malayalis aka Mallus don’t boast about God’s own country for nothing.  If you have a Mallu friend then you will know how amazing they are and if YOU are a Mallu, then you’ll know what the following unique (and amazing) things feel like! Here are some things only Mallus will relate to!

1. Our all-time favourite snack - banana chips!

We always have a stock of these awesome chips at home no matter what time of the year it is. In fact, a trip to Kerala is incomplete if you come back without these.

2. We are very proud of the movie industry down South

Not just because they have super-talented actors but also because Bollywood remakes those masterpieces, every damn time! *smug*

3. We hate it when someone calls us Madrasis

For the love of God, people from Madras (Chennai) = Madrasis and people from Kerala = Malayalis. GET IT?

4. Bling! Bling! Bling!

Our love for gold is a little more than usual! Every Malayali owns quite a lot of gold and it’s just something we love to do.

5. We love and adore Mohanlal and nothing will ever change it!

Did we not say that coconut oil is just about the best thing ever!!

8. We all have at least one cousin settled in the ‘G-elf’

By that we mean Dubai. This is what we like to call the Middle East.

Well, a lot of people in our Nattil (Kerala) love to call their kids with this name.

Yes! With a mountain of rice and some pickle to go with it, please?
