7 Places In Delhi For An Extravagant Onam Sadhya


For the ones who don’t know, Onam is a festival to celebrate the arrival of the very famous and popular demon king of Kerala – King Mahabali. As is synonymous with most festivals of India, the main attraction of Onam is also food – or Sadhya as it is popularly called.

Along with Kerala, the Capital is also ready to paint itself in the colors of this auspicious festival. Here are 7 places in Delhi that have their banana leaves in place for a decadent Onam Sadhya.
