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!
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.
Not just because they have super-talented actors but also because Bollywood remakes those masterpieces, every damn time! *smug*
For the love of God, people from Madras (Chennai) = Madrasis and people from Kerala = Malayalis. GET IT?
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.
From messy scalps, to making food our yummier… Coconut can solve all our problems. No, seriously!
Did we not say that coconut oil is just about the best thing ever!!
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.
We will have an instant connection with someone from Kerala no matter where we are.
You have to eat this to know what we exactly mean when we say we love it!
We mean, there are over 25 different kinds of dishes during Onam sadya (feast)!
Yes! With a mountain of rice and some pickle to go with it, please?
Ratheesh Karipoor Thekkumpatte is a real person!
Every mallu kid has owned a Poppy umbrella at least once in her lifetime!
Ah! You have to be there to witness this beautiful festival.
Kerala traditional outfits are just the best.
