    Vishu and Onam is not the same. Vishu is the malayalam new year and Onam is the harvest festival.

    u wont belivvvvve wat i did last yr.!!
    My first time in the US,bholi bhali (buddhu) ladki ,recently got married, didnt know soo much about poojas..(while in india ,always had a mom who would do all things neccessary for the pooja)
    So supposedly for this festival..we are supposed to keep all fruits,vegetables,pulses, gold coins,rice..etc etc , in front of the Gods(mandir) ,the previous night. Next morning,we are supposed to get up wihtout opening our eyes and go straight to the Mandir and then open our eyes so that our firssst glimpse is of alll the veggies and fruits..symbolises that we are praying to god,that we get a good harvest and may we never see a shortage of these things.(correct me if i am wrong, the wiser ones:) but this is wat my mom told me!!)
    anyways..i decided to take a shorcut route for the preparations..

    So for vishu kani...i got up with closed eyes...and went straight to the kitchen ..opened the fridge and opened my eyes. :D

    dont ask wat followed..after i told this to my MIL and Mom!!!!! :eek:

    anyways
    this was too embarrasing.So i decided this year..i will prepare "Payasam"
    which is sweet porridge.
    so i call my sister who has always been my guiding light for southindian cooking.(well...my first yr...she taught me 'cooking' and the names of differant pulses.this year i have progressed to "southindian cooking" :cool: !!

    so she is instructing me to cut vellam,(or ) guddd, or a huge chunk of unrefined sugarcane(am i right,fellows???)
    So the fone is betn my ear , shoulder my hands are desperately trying to cut that stubborn block of vellam....and aaahhh i finally split the block.
    Lo and behold wat did i see!
    a hugggge cockroach wigggling its antenna out of one piece.
    I screaaaaaamed ,goosepimpleddd , threw the fone down..my sister thought i had a heartattack.. :scared: :scared:
    I had the yukkkkiesst feeeling a feeling could get!!!!
    i finally drew enough strength to throw the entire container with the vellam in the garbage disposal!!!

    Even god didnt want me to make payasam that day :rolleyes:

    Toothmail, sadhya is the traditional banana leaf lunch, usually reserved for Onam, but my family never skip a chance to celebrate :D

    Gee, a thread for malayalees.Man ,this is a small world.Someone here mentioned that VIshu is new yr and Onam in the harvest festival.Just a correction.Vishu is the harvest festival,back in the days they welocmed the new year with harvest.Same as for most or all of the other Indians.Onam is specifically a malayalee festival.It is based on a belief of the annual visit of a generous demon king from the mythology.The simple reasoning, Onam is after monsoons and harvest is always before rains.
