Tulu Brahmins is believed to have migrated from Tulu speaking regions of South India.
Tulu Brahmins is believed to have migrated from Tulu speaking regions of South India which include regions in Kasargode district of Kerala and Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts of Karnataka.
Their migration might have happened during the Second World War. Many historical data refer that it was during this period that Tulu Brahmin restaurants began to mushroom in the region, which strengthens this assumption.
People of Mattancherry took an instant liking for mildly spiced vegetarian delicacies served by the Tuluvas and most of the restaurants blossomed. It is believed that Masala Dosa, Chappathi and Jangri, a sweet that resembles jilebi was introduced to Mattancherry by the Tuluvas.
There are approximately 20 Tulu Brahmin family in the area.
PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION BY BIJU IBRAHIM: COMMUNITIES OF KOCHI
Places have souls and Mattancherry in the city of Kochi has a mystic one. Biju Ibrahim discovered this while documenting the lives of Kochi’s 38 communities through black and white pictures. Distinct in layers of identities – caste, faith, language, ethnicity and region – these communities have been welcomed over centuries and have, in turn, infused Mattancherry and Kochi with a rare and rich heritage. Historically, it has been home to Muslims, Christians, Jews and Hindus. The sea and port attracted sailors, traders from Arabia and Gujarat, preachers of Semitic faiths, colonisers such as the Dutch and Portuguese, political refugees and migrant labourers. A cross-section of India lives here in a radius of 5 kilometers.
He captures the essence of rustic geographies, the people who are now becoming archive of the earth, the mythic & mystery of spaces & places, alleys of now filled with the density of then or before.
