The Onam Sadhya seems like a representation of life on a Banana leaf, filled with different textures and flavours – sweet, salty, sour, bitter – all in one meal. Sadhya means feast in Malayalam and it literally is!
The Bengali Aloor Dum is not just differently pronounced but it is a whole world away in terms of taste. Baby potatoes cooked to a perfect bite in a rich, thick base that is fragrant with whole and ground spices. We cleaned up every surface this delicious dish touched.
This carrot cake, absolutely stuffed full of wholesome ingredients like carrots, bananas, coconut and walnuts, is a perfect example. Every ingredient adds flavour and moisture, cinnamon and nutmeg bring a delicate warmth and the cake is a tender, hearty delight.
