Onam
is a festival i adopted when i got married. My in - laws are Iyers from Palakkad, Kerala so they get the best of both worlds..which is they get to do all the stuff Tamilians do and also the stuff Keralites do . Onam and Vishu are some of our adopted celebrations. While onam celebrates the return of the King Mahabali, from the depths of the earth to bless the people of Kerala, Vishu is a celebration to mark the new year.But the best part of both festivals is the elaborate meal that is called the Sadhi or the Sadhya.which is served on a plantain leaf .Will post pictures of a Plantain leaf Sadhi soon! It includes stuff like kalan, olan, avial, errisherry, tooran, papadam, payasam.................yum!!!!!

Navarathri


T
hese ten days have been a flurry of activity with rustling silks , sparkling diamonds, spicy sundals, smells of cardamom and kesar, girls in pavadais, haldi, kumkum and an rainbow of colours.......I love this time of the year because i get to meet a lot of people ..friends, cousins, siblings, first cousins's mother-in-law's sister, father's sister's daughters in law..and so on..(.hahahaha just kidding!)
