Tyre Pathiri

Breaking the Ramadan fast is an event that is flavoured with the joy of sharing and compassion. There is one particular taste that overpowers the taste buds of Thodupuzha natives in the holy month—it is the taste of the tharikanji (a form of rice gruel), made in Mughal Hotel. This hotel which operates in Mangattukavala can lay a claim to have broken the fast most number of times for Thodupuzha residents. Those who have experienced the taste and quality of the tharikanji served at this place are certain to never forget this hotel ever.

The Mughal Hotel’s association with Thodupuzha dates back to over six decades. Before the advent of the bridge in Thodupuzha, this teashop, started by Puthariyil Kunjumbava came to be known from its inception as Puthari’s Hotel. The devotees arriving at Thodupuzha’s Chanthakunnu mosque used to break their fast by having tharikanji and pathiri from Puthari’s hotel.

As time sped by, the hotel is now run by Puthari’s grandson and former Santhosh Trophy player P. A. Salimkutty. Even though times have changed along with the name and location of the hotel, the authentic taste still remains at Mughal Hotel. Even now old timers and new generation folks who arrive at Thodupuzha seek this hotel out for breaking their fast. Mughal Hotel, which is also known as the district’s ‘football hotel’, awaits the fast observers with a delectable spread of dishes including pathiri, appam, idiyappam and kappabiriyani. ‘Sumptuous meal for throwaway price’ is the highlight of the hotel.
