We, Malayalis, are a special bunch. We have so many wonderful qualities that it’s impossible to list them all out. We also have unique Malayali things that only fellow Malayalis will get. If you’re a true blue Malayali, you’ll definitely get these things:
1. The first superhero we knew.
Jayan could do stunts like no one’s business.
2. Anything ground on this ancient thing tasted 100x better.
3. A Malayali household is incomplete without this.
Or at least a modern version of it.
4. When you see these, you know someone has returned from the Gelf.
5. Every Malayali’s favourite car hanging.
6. Breakfast of Malayali champions.
7. Malayalis love benena chips.
So does the rest of the country.
8. Bollywood has SRK & Amitabh Bachchan. We have Mohanlal & Mammootty.

10. Every Malayali household has this.
Sometimes, one in every room.
