The secularity of harvest festivals is something to celebrate. Especially the harvest festival of secular Kerala, Onam. All Malayalee houses can be recognised, (no matter what their religion, someone told us), from the pookkalam on the doorstep. A “pookkalam” is the decorative design made from coloured powder (aka kolam, kola, rangoli…).
At Feast, in the Sheraton Grand, those celebrating the harvest can do so with a brunch buffet spread, instead of busting out the plantain leaf at home.
The brunch will have typical Kerala delicacies like Avial and Tharavu Varutharacha Curry (non vegetarian food is not typical for Onam so this is a bonus.) Other dishes are Steamed Ponni Rice and Mysore Pak. The live counters serve Appams like Ragi Appam and Idiyappam with stew and coconut milk.
At the Sheraton Grand brunch includes alcohol. The brunch is priced at Rs 2295 plus taxes with alcohol and Rs 1795 plus taxes without alcohol.
The brunch is on 28 August, at Feast from 1230pm to 4pm, at Sheraton Grand Bangalore Hotel at Brigade Gateway.
