The Syro Malabar Great Lent is a little longer than the Latin Lent, about 50 days and starts on Clean Monday. Obligations are very similar, no meat on Fridays and of course personal sacrifice. Things get a little different during Holy Week, depending on personal devotion some Syro Malabars will fast three days Thurs-Sat, though this is not a requirement. Knanayas will celebrate Passover on Thursday night and only eat Passover bread and milk until Saturday. Other St. Thomas Christians will also celebrate Passover but depending on denomination, the bread used may be different and the traditions surrounding it may also differ. On Easter Morning, there is a great feast where appam (a type of Indian pancake) is eatin with beef curry.
There are numerous other fasts but these are more of choice then obligatory, in example personal devotion to particular saints and fasting on there feast day. Some Syro Malabar will also fast during certain times in the Month of St. Mary and also on St. Thomas Day.
