Onam Special

Onam kerala

Happy Onam to all my fellow Malayalis and Malayalis at heart :) I hope you all enjoy a wonderful feast and have some extra for me :)

Onam is the harvest festival of Kerala celebrated not only by the Hindus for whom it is a religious festival, but by everyone throughout the state and all Mallus scattered worldwide,  as a sort of celebration of everything that is beautiful and beloved to Kerala! If you visit Kerala during Onam, you will see colourful carpets made from flower petals outside every home, beautifully dressed women in their white and gold saris and ornate jewelry with strings of jasmine in their hair, and boat races along the many rivers, and if you are really lucky maybe even some Kathakali performances or Puli Kali ( tiger dance with the dancers bodies painted orange and striped black to look like tigers)

I hope to enjoy a full blown Sadhya this year after ages. Sadhya to all my non-Mallu friends is a large feast of delicious vegetarian dishes ranging from spicy to tangy to sweet, served with a mound of rice, typically on a large banana leaf, which ofcourse is my favourite part of Onam!
I am really looking forward to my Onam celebration with my sister-in-law's family, especially since my cute little niece will be performing a special Onam dance! but this Onam get together is happening only in two weeks. So tomorrow, I will be making just one or two of our Onam favourites. Since it will just be the two of us and the monkey I am not attempting to make a full Sadhya (that might probably kill me!) Preparing a full Sadhya requires a lot of collaborative effort and you need a team of dedicated, chattering aunts or a team of skilled cooks to accomplish!

Here are some of my favourite dishes from the archives that may be part of the Sadhya:




Kerala beans stir fry








And now to my favourite part... the dessert!

I think the apart from the Payasams, Eriserry is my favourite. What is your favourite Onam item?

  46. Có lẽ cần phải trải qua tuổi thanh xuân( Phương pháp học toán tư duy ) mới có thể hiểu được tuổi xuân là khoảng thời gian ta( dạy trẻ học toán tư duy ) sống ích kỷ biết chừng nào. Có lúc nghĩ, sở dĩ tình yêu cần phải đi một vòng tròn lớn như vậy, phải trả một cái giá quá đắt như thế,( Học toán tư duy có tốt không ) là bởi vì nó đến không đúng thời điểm. Khi có được( Toán mầm non ) tình yêu, chúng ta thiếu đi trí tuệ. Đợi đến khi( Bé học đếm số ) có đủ trí tuệ, chúng ta đã không còn sức lực để yêu một tình yêu thuần khiết nữa.
