The box arrives

Onam, one of the big festivals of Kerala, was yesterday. This is a harvest festival, and involves a wonderful onam sadhya, onam lunch. For the last couple of years The Family has located restaurants nearby for such a lunch. It was out of question this year. I’d not paid much attention to the calls to our favourite restaurant, and the fact that she’d ordered onam sadhya from them for us. After all, this restaurant is known for its innovative take on Indian food; how traditional could it be? Very, it turned out.

The box, when it arrived, was amazing. I made a video of the unboxing of the food. It took us half an hour to prepare the “plates”. Happy Onam to you. Enjoy!

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.

  1. That feast looks great! The banana leaf inclusion is very pleasing attention towards being particular. However what takes the cake is the instruction being included on how to arrange the sadhya – it must be an important aspect of the traditional meal.

    1. I believe the arrangement is pretty fixed, so it must be traditional. Putting on the achars on the right side of the leaf is not done, for example. Some things make clear sense: the rice in the middle, is one such.


  2. You write informative and interesting articles about a variety of subjects. I love your site. Thanks for visiting my site as well. I’m not overly fond of Indian food, but I love the way you presented it in your video.
