Onam, a 10-day festival, marks the end of a harvest year in Kerala and also celebrates the arrival of a New Year for Malayali Hindus. Malaika Arora is the daughter of Anil Arora and Joyce Polycarp, who hails from Kerala. Malaika is Salman Khan's brother Arbaaz's ex-wife and the former couple are parents to a son Arhaan.
"Happy Onam my Mallu brethren... There is no meal that I love more than Onam Sadhya... and my mum Joyce Arora is just the world's bestest cook," this is what Malaika wrote for another pic. Amrita, who shared the same pic, had just one word for her mother's culinary skills - "unreal." What characterises Onam Sadhya is that it essentially comprises 26 dishes (all vegetarian) and is traditionally served on banana leaf. The payasam is usually the main attraction of the meal while pappadom, rasam, thoran, sambar and rice are some of the primary culinary delights on the menu.
Happy Onam to all of you!
