Anand Mahindra Wants To Know Which Restaurant Serve The Best Sadhya

Sadhya consists of a variety of standard vegetarian foods that are typically served for lunch in Kerala on a banana leaf. Onam, the state festival of Kerala, is traditionally celebrated with a traditional feast called Sadya, which translates to banquet in Malayalam.

Approximately 24-28 dishes can be served as one course in a standard Sadya. If it is a huge one, such as the Sadya for Aranmula Boat race (Valla Sadya), it may contain over 64 things. Plain boiled rice is the primary food item, which is offered with different curries including parippu, sambar, rasam, and pulisseri.

Along with papadam, plantain chips, sharkara upperi, banana, plain curd, and buttermilk, the lunch also includes kaalan, avial, thoran, olan, pachadi, kichadi, koottukari, erissery, mango pickle, injipuli, mezhukkupuratti, and naranga achaar (lime pickle).
