As the finale of Onam approaches, we've all got the grand Malayali feast aka the Onasadya on our minds. You read it right. This festival that marks the homecoming of Kerala's legendary king Mahabali is a hit among foodies for its all-vegetarian spread served on a banana leaf.

Thoran, avial, kootu curry, kaalan, rasam, sambar, injipuli, payasam, cucumber pachadi, poppadam, and payasam are a few savoury and sweet dishes that are part of the fare, and each dish is a riot of flavours and textures.
