Onam Recipes / Onam Sadhya Recipes / Onam Special Dishes are made on the day of Onam – the harvest festival of God’s own country, Kerala. Sadhya means banquet in Malayalam, a vegetarian feast nearly 24 – 28 dishes served in a single course. I have heard from my Malayali friends that a larger Sadhya menu have more than 64 items, that’s incredible, isn’t it! The main dish is plain boiled Kerala rice with parippu curry, sambar, rasam, puliserri, kalan, avial, thoran, olan, pachadi, kootu curry, erissery, pickle, puli inji, as well as papadam, chips, upperi, banana and curd. Finally, buttermilk (sambaram) and nearly 3 to 4 variety of payasam are served at the end of the meal. The dishes are served on the banana leaf in a specific order. I have shared 30 + Onam recipes in this single post, each post is given with step by step pics, tips and some recipes with a YouTube video. Please click the pics in this collage to read through all the recipes. This year Onam festival began on 1 September and ends on 13 September (date may vary).
Wish you all a Happy Onam.
