A typical sadya has ripe bananas, banana chips, thick jaggery-coated banana chips called sharkara upperi, pappadam and pazham on the extreme left corner of the banana leaf. Some sadyas also include bitter gourd chips, yam chips etc.
Unniyappam is made as part of nivedhyam (offering) to God. They also have pickles like Inji curry, Inji puli, Mango and Lemon pickles etc.
The side dishes are such an integral part of an Onam Sadya. The delectable Aviyal, good looking thoran, colourful kichadi and pachadi, spicy and flavorful kootu curry and mild yet delicious, Olan. An absolute delight for the tummy of Keralites!
Enjoy the wide variety of recipes and plan your meal today.
In our part of Kerala , sadya parippu is the first to be poured on top of hot rice followed by a generous dollop of ghee. Smash a crispy pappadam into it and devour it! I guess lots of mouths must be watering now! Mine definitely is! This is then followed by piping hot sambar, kaalan, rasam, sambharam etc.
Finally the main star of the sadya – The ‘Payasam’. Usually ada pradhaman or parippu pradhaman is served first. And then would come a white coloured payasam – palada or semiya or pal payasam. In some parts of Kerala, Boli, a sweet crepe made using chana dal and maida is usually served along with pal payasam or semiya payasam during a Kalyana Sadya. I have a few payasams which are different from the ones usually served at a traditional sadya, but these are so tasty and simple to prepare. Do try.
So, what are you waiting for? Giddy up! Get into your kitchens and start cooking! Hope this Onam recipe round up will help plan a delicious sadya. And if you liked my post, show me some love by sharing the post with friends and family.
Wishing you all a very happy Onam
