  1. Wow what a spread!!. My friend and i went to a restaurant to treat ourselves with onam sadhya special and it was an experience. Truly enjoyed it and we ate to our gills. I like the melamine banana leaf platter.

  2. Happy Onam girl!! The picture of the rice looks simply stunning. Makes such a simple thing look so exotic! :)

  3. Thank you Manju! Hope you had a wonderful Onam too!

  4. What a lovely spread and so beautifully captured.
    Great work dear.

  5. Belated Onam wishes to you and your family. Drooling at the gorgeous and inviting Sadhya.

  6. NS, Pari and Radhika, Thankyou!

  7. The melamine leaf plate is cool. When everyone traveled across cities to get a leaf you simply had to wipe and lay down the melamine and bingo! Every thing looks superb.

  8. Thanks Sunitha, the other option was folded, frozen banana leaves from the local Vietnamese Grocery...


Thank you for your valuable feedback!
