Happy Onam.....

Wishing all my readers and visitors a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous Onam.

I love to celebrate Onam - Harvest festival of Kerala. It is very cheerful and stimulating experience. Onam Sadhya is one of the distinct feature of this festival. It is a delightful platter comprising of flavor packed curries, subjis, chutneys, pickle, chips, fruits and payasam.

I tried to cook few delicacies of Onam Sadhya and thoroughly enjoyed cooking experience...with great joy relished delicious tasting Onam feast.

  • Koot curry. (Kala Chana, Yam in coconut gravy)
  • Kerala Matta Rice.
  • Papadam with Curd chili on top.
  • Rice Payasam.
  • Beetroot+Green beans Thoran.
  • Okra Curd Pachadi . (in center)
  • Olan ( winter melon & black eyed peas in coconut sauce).

Onam Pookalam
