Happy Onam

 Happy Onam
Traditionally, Onam is celebrated for ten days and each day has its own significance. Onam sadhya is usually prepared and served on the 10th day of the festival. Tenth day of the Onam is known as ‘Thiruonam’ and the grand feast served on this day is called ‘Thiruona-sadya’. Onam dishes are served during the feast, which is usually held during the lunch time. Various types of vegetable curries, appetizers, and main dishes are served. Rice dishes are considered an integral part of this traditional Onam food menu.

Ranging from Avial – Veg mix done is a very different way, Sambar, Parippu Curry (Special Dal with coconut) Theeyal, Banana Chips, Puli Inji (Puli means khatta and Inji means ginger), Pachadi, Pal Payasam (Milk kheer), Banana, Papadam …n many more things.

All my south Indian friends are welcome to add on to the list…..Sorry if I have made any mistakes in the above mention dishes since I am not an expert in the same.

Wishing u all a very happy onam
