Celebrate “Pongal” with us this January

We are promoting South Indian Food Menu in the month of January.

January is the month of Harvest Festival in Southern India also known as “Pongal” a multi-day festival of food starting on the 14th of January.

The festival is named after the ceremonial “Pongal”, which means “to boil, overflow” and refers to the traditional dish prepared from the new harvest of rice boiled in milk with jaggery (raw sugar). To mark the festival, the pongal sweet dish is prepared, first offered to the gods and goddesses (goddess Pongal), followed sometimes with an offering to cows, and then shared by the family.

Festive celebrations include decorating cows and their horns, ritual bathing and processions. It is traditionally an occasion for decorating rice-powder based kolam artworks, offering prayers in the home, temples, getting together with family and friends, and exchanging gifts to renew social bonds of solidarity.

Check out our “South Indian Food” Menu (dine in only) and book now for anytime from the 14th til the 31st of January.
