Take a look at the traditional Sadhya served in Kerala on a banana leaf courtesy of Kerala Tourism. 

Here’s an introduction to the many dishes that would crowd your plantain leaf. Steamed rice is heaped in the centre and bordered with a row of accompaniments that range from pickles, chips to pachadi, aviyal and thoran. The art of serving a sadhya lies in learning its positioning. Place the banana leaf so that the wider side is on the right-hand side of the person eating the meal. Starting from the left, pappadum and banana are served overlappingly close followed by salt, sharkaravaratti, banana chips, ginger lime and mango pickles. The right side comprises of thorans, khichadi, pachadi and kootu curry, while the centre spot is reserved for aviyal and olan.

    • Review via Tripadvisor by DenisinWales on 26th September 2018 1st despite the very long sign board covering 2 store fronts, the entrance is a tiny door at the far left. Once you climb to the 1st floor, you are greeted with a very understated and tasteful restaurant seating about 60-70 people. For a Tuesday night

    • Review by Ellym106, TripAdvisor, April 2018 We had an excellent meal here. We visited India in November and know how the food is supposed to be – and this is it!
