We’re suckers for a good evening snack. I mean, there’s nothing better than having good ol’ snacks with a hot cup of tea or coffee. We found a superb snack bar that serves homemade Malabar delicacies in Calicut. Mushakkal Calicut, run by Mushina and her family, wanted people to experience their food traditions without compromising on the quality of the snacks served. And the best part is you don’t need to pay huge bucks.
Located in Jawahar Nagar Colony Rd in Nadakkave, Kozhikode, Mushakkal Calicut has an extensive menu to choose from. They serve close to 30 varieties of Malabar snacks, right from local delicacies to snacks they’ve experimented with. Unnakkaya, Kalathappam, Neypathiri, Kinnathappam, Omana Pola etc are a few among many other bite-sized snack meals. They also have snacks varieties with white sauce and three different flavours of chaaya. Their chemeen puttu with pappadam deserves a special mention.
All of their snacks are homemade and brought to the store. The snacks that need frying are done on the spot. Apart from chaaya, they also serve fresh juices.
Allow the warm ambience at Mushakkal Calicut to engulf you while you unwind and learn about the rich flavour of Malabar cuisine. They’re open from 10:00 AM to 10:30 PM so don’t forget to pay a visit.
