Coconut milk and curry leaves are added into the recipe so that the dish gets some coastal flavour.
Now if you are not much acquainted with the cuisine of Malabar, let us tell you that other than meat, chicken and fish, nothing else is much liked by the people of Malabar.
Sanjeev Kapoor’s Malabar Paneer was not liked by Twitterati and they trolled him mercilessly. Here are few selected tweets:
Adding Malabar prefix to a dish does not make it a Malabar dish. I dare you to find a Malabar dish that use paneer.

Malabar is famous for beef and chicken. Even if it is a fusion food don't mix it up with the malabar. You can name it south indian panneer or malayalam panneer or lakshadweep panneer etc. Naming a panneer like this is an Insult to malabar.

By simply adding coconut milk to anything does not become Malabar. Come on chef, never heard of any dish with Planner in Kerala. Get ur facts checked.
