Onam Sadhya for the desperate!

First “Onam” away from home and I had to settle for a pseudo sadhya at Kabini on Wednesday afternoon. They served 36 different items and none came close to the actual taste. The “rasam” tasted like “sambar”, “kalan” tasted weird, the rice was dry and they did not serve curd OR buttermilk!!! The biggest flop was the “palada” payasam itself – that was one sucky payasam!!!

My only comfort was that they served boiled rice along with raw rice. Its so darned difficult to to find a place which serves boiled rice!

I should should have just gone to Coconut Grove like suggested or just gone to Cochin like planned just for the food. and , consider yourself fortunate that you could not make it for the sadhya!
