It’s that time of the year again when Mahabali tales and Onam Sadya is on everyone’s mind. I feel a strange connect to all things mallu, whether it is the gorgeous Kerala Kasavu or it’s the appam and beef fry or the breathtaking beauty of backwaters of Kerala, N at home teases me that I either have some previous life relation with Kerala or an ex-boyfriend I don’t tell him about and secretly still date 😉
Sadya I made two years ago
Two years ago I made the full sadya. Like I have said in that post, I find the idea of banana leaf meals and sitting down and eating almost magical. It was a tough task but in the end the satisfaction on the faces of people who ate it was amazing. But somehow I never could sit down and enjoy the meal, when I cook too much I can never eat and last week a friend invited few of us for an onam sadya cooked by her and I enjoyed every bite I took and decided to make the sadya items a day for this week and share the recipes here. If I still have energy left might just do a mini sadya on Saturday the Onam day.
Sadya made by Meeta this year
But till then here are the recipes to help you with your planning. Starting with Pumpkin Errisery. When I asked my family what was their favorite dish from the sadya two years ago, the MIL and N both said the one with pumpkin without even thinking twice, so here it is. Unfortunately the camera card I clicked pictures on yesterday went kaput on me and hence using the picture from two years ago, will buy a new card today and have new pictures for the rest of the dishes promise 🙂
