Onam Sadya Recipes

This year Onam will be celebrated from September 6, 2017. Celebrated in Kerala as a 10-day festival of which the last 4 days are the most important. For me one of the most wonderful sights during Onam is the Pookalam or an elaborate rangoli made with flowers. One of the main tourist attractions in this season is the snake boat race, called Vallamkali, the most famous of which is the Nehru Trophy Boat Race held near Alappuzha (Alleppey).

As with all Indian festivals, Onam is celebrated with a traditional meal called Onam Sadya or Onasadya. Here are a few Onam Sadya recipes that you could try:
