Instead, they prefer lamb with coconut curries, just like this one:
The chef became the butt of jokes on Twitter, after his recipe was shared with such an ironic description. One look at their reactions, and you’ll know how aghast people were. Clearly, people did not take to his version of ‘Malabar Paneer’ very warmly and trolled him mercilessly.

Closest thing for Malayalees!
Someone just called it Kachra!
Tweeple.. don’t disturb him!
Adding just Coconut isn’t enough!
You just hurt Kerela!
This is an insult to Malabar!
Don’t make a fool of people…
Is the recipe from Whatsapp University?
Adding Malabar prefix doesn’t help…
