Onam is the most celebrated festival in the south Indian state of Kerala and is currently in full swing! It is a harvest festival celebrated in God’s Own Country with much splendour and love. Snake boat races, colourful celebrations, and the festive meal, ‘Onam Sadhya,’ are what make the Onam festival grand. It adds colour, flavours and brings together families to celebrate a special day from across the world.
Onam Sadhya or the ‘Onam Feast’ is the most celebrated day in the 10-day festival. It is a hearty nine-course meal comprising of a variety of delicacies besides the well-known avial, sambar, fried snacks and of course, the sweet rice pudding called payasam.
