Onam Sadya, is the grand feast prepared on the auspicious occasion of Onam Festival. Sadya is a variety of vegetarian dishes traditionally served in Banana Leaf in Kerala. A normal Sadya can have about 24-28 dishes served as a single course. The main dish is the plain Boiled Rice which is served with Sambar, Rasam, Puliseri along with Eriseri, Olan, Kalan, Aviyal, Thoran, Pachadi, Puliinji and 3-4 different varieties of Payasam / Pradaman.The most common ingredients in all the dishes are rice, coconut and coconut oil as they are abundant in Kerala. Coconut milk is used in some dishes and coconut oil is used for frying and also as an ingredient in others.  Conventionally, the meal may be followed by vettila murukkan, chewing of betel leaf with lime and arecanut. This helps digestion of the meal and also cleanses the palate.


I have included most of the traditional and important dishes in Sadya. In my Sadya, I have included Plain Boiled Rice, Sambar, Rasam, Puliseri, Eriseri, Olan, Kalan, Aviyal, Thoran, Ladysfinger Thayir Pachadi, Kadalaparuppu Pradaman, Pal Payasan, Nei Paruppu and Papad. There are atleast 4 different variety of payasam/pradaman done for Sadya. I have given below many different payasam varieties and also individual recipes in Menu. This menu would surely be a richer Sadya for this Onam.
