Wait a minute!!! Please don’t gasp at your monitor sides and wipe your eyes! I know it’s not Saturday nor did two weeks pass so quickly! Sometimes, you have to tweak your schedules a bit in order to accommodate some special posts. Today, Kerala celebrates Onam, which is the harvest festival. An occasion carried out with aplomb throughout the state. I am no person to really speak about it, because of me, Onam is all about sadya – a lunch served on a banana leaf with loads and loads of vegetables to eat. In fact, it’s only during the time of sadya that I would eat rice without fish! Hehe… Since there are many more Malayalees who are more familiar with the celebrations and traditions, I would relieve myself from that duty and limit myself to wishing all the Keralites a very Happy Onam. 🙂
I know very much away from my schedule, I bring in another guest post and that too in the space of two days. Actually, this post happened all of a sudden. My schoolmate, Sujitha, whom we all call Suji lovingly, has a blog of her own. Sincerely speaking, I took encouragement for cooking from her. Her tried and tested pictures of FB really pushed me to try out recipes on my own, and that’s when I started enjoying cooking. So you can say that my inherent interest was aroused because of her! She started the blog much before me, but because of certain consequences, she had to stall it and now she’s again back to blogging with a bang. I’ve always seen that she cooks up a mini sadya every year at her residence in Bangalore. I just popped up the question if she is OK to do a post for me as Onam special and she did take it up on short notice, despite having a baby to take care of. Thank you so much Suji, for this… I know I have eaten your head but then… what are friends for? 😉 So instead of me posting an Onam recipe, I give my friend the honors of doing it. Do go through, visit her blog and shower your love for her, just like all of you have done for me… 🙂
here I am with a little blog of my cooking experiments – Suji’s Cooking Lab. I’ve seen and been inspired by many food blogs and I’ve always wondered how they managed to create many wonderful dishes that required lots of hard work and time and energy. But as I am very lazy I usually end up doing easy dishes. So my blog consists of simple, easy to cook dishes and as mentioned in my blog its simply “easy cook for the lazy cooks”.

Thank you so much Suji for giving this lip-smacking payasam, at such a short notice. I really feel like I’ve already savored a little of that payasam now. Hope all of you have enjoyed this post and wish you all your little festivities… 🙂
