Onam Ashamsakal

Onam is the harvest festival celebrated in Kerala in the Chingam (1st month of the Malayalam calendar). The 10 day long festival is celebrated by all Malayalees regardless of caste and religion. You can know about the onam legends, customs and games here.

I feel onam is celebrated more by NRK (Non Resident Keralite) especially outside India. This is my second onam in Bangalore and the experience of last year’s terrible sadhya makes me less hopeful of a better one this year. I’ll be trying out Cafe Malabari in Koramangala (since it is closest to home). If you are in Bangalore this onam here are some places that you can have your sadhya cravings satisfied.

This is by no means a comprehensive one. Next year I’ll include more options along with the prices.
