THIRUVONAM

Hope everyone had a sumptuous Onam.



We celebrated Onam by making a traditional pookalam (with hand collected flowers) and of course, the traditional Onasadhya (Onam feast). We had sambar, aviyal, olan, puliinji, naranga achar, pappadam, pazham, salted chips and sweet chips and Palada Pradhaman (recipe later).  Onam was all the more enjoyable because our elder son is with us to celebrate Onam and also because I could send some Onam goodies over to our younger son and family through a friend.
I am still unable to type long posts, so I will end this here. More later.

Welcome back !! I used a lot of your recipes for my Onam Sadhya.
Your pookalam looks different because it was done with flowers you collected as opposed to bought.
