With Keralites preparing to celebrate the Onam festival on the last week of August 2023, Indian restaurants in Doha Qatar, are gearing up to wow their guests with their grand Onam Sadhyas – as special standalone spreads or as part of their regular buffets.
What is Onam Sadhya
For those unfamiliar, Onam Sadhya (Onam Sadya) is a traditional feast comprising around 20 to 40 vegetarian dishes, traditionally served on a banana leaf.
Rice is the main staple, served along with other dishes such as sambar (mixed vegetable curry), parippu (lentil curry), rasam, kaalan, aviyal, olan, koottukari, erissery, pachadi, pulisseri, and thoran. The Onam Sadhya ends with different types of payasam served as dessert.
Generally, Onam Sadhya cuisine is mildly spiced and tastes delicious because it is not overcooked and does not include excessive amounts of spices. If you love South Indian food, it is one of the best experiences of traditional Kerala cuisine.
