Malabar cuisine is an integral part of the culinary tradition of Kerala with a distinctive flavour that comes from the use of coconut milk, curry leaves and local aromatic species. Most people in Kerala are non-vegetarians and their local curries include chicken, mutton, beef, or seafood.

The fact that Kapoor used paneer in his version of a Malabar curry did not go down well with netizens as many pointed out that cottage cheese is not used in dishes from the region.

“Adding Malabar prefix to a dish does not make it a Malabar dish. I dare you to find a Malabar dish that use paneer,” wrote one person.

Some users also slammed him for giving the traditional cuisine a north Indian twist by using paneer.

“As a malabari, Iam hearing about such a dish for first time. What does North Indian paneer had to do with malabar’s traditional dishes (sic),” a user wrote.
