Onam, the auspicious festival of Kerala is just around the corner. The ten-day-long festival will begin on August 20 and end on August 31. Day 1 is observed as Atham, followed by  Chithira, Chodi, Vishakam, Anizham, Thriketta, Moolam, Pooradam, Uthradom, and Thiruvonam.

Indian festivals are synonymous with scrumptious dishes and Onam is one such festival that has a rich culture of food. The harvest festival is celebrated with joviality and a colourful spread served on banana leaves called Sadhya. The feast takes place on the Day 10 of the Onam festival.

What is Onam  Sadhya?

Served on a banana leaf, Onam Sadhya is a multi-course pure vegetarian meal with more than 25 dishes. The meal consists of dishes from across the state, like curries, red rice, pottu, fried snacks, thoran, and others. Among 25, 13 dishes are the important ones and should be in the meal necessarily. Below are the 13 dishes:

  • Thoran
  • Kalan
  • Olan
  • Erissery
  • Aviyal
  • Puli Inji
  • Upperi
  • Ada Pradhaman
  • Paal Payasam
  • Mor Curry
  • Rasam
  • Sambar

Keralities relish Sadhya with their hands and avoid spoons and forks. The preparation of Onam Sadhya starts a day before the feast and holds an important significance. On the last day of the 10-day-long festival, families gather to cook, eat, and celebrate their camaraderie.
