Culture of kozhikode

The culture of Kozhikode is all about literature and music, and several prominent writers come from Kozhikode. These include S. K. Pottekkatt, Thikkodiyan and Sanjayan. Their traditions and customs play an important role in their lives. Kozhikode is famous for folk songs called Vadakkan Pattukal. Ghazals are also a popular music form in Kozhikode. Major festivals and social functions often include dance performances such as Koothu, Kathakali, Ottanthullal, and Kaikottikali. Ritual dance forms such as Thira and Theyyam are also popular in Kozhikode. Some of the important festivals celebrated in the region are the Thacholi Manikkoth Temple Festival, Appavanibha Nercha at Idiyangara Sheik Masjid, and Kadappally Kumbhom Thira Puduppanam.\n\nMalabar cuisine is very famous all through the state. Most famous for these dishes is the mildly-flavoured, gently cooked Malabar Biryani, with mutton that is tenderly cooked and mixed with flaky rice and then delicately spiced.
