Ooty is a hilly paradise in the Nilgiris with tea plantations blanketing the hills and rolling mists enveloping them. One of the tribes to originally inhabit the Nilgiris are the Baduga's and on the traditional Ooty theme night at Club Mahindra Derby Green Ooty, they will give you a sneak peek into their rich traditions and customs.

The Baduga community is spread throughout the villages of Ooty. Dance plays a key role in all their functions, festivals and even funerals. These fun-loving people do not hesitate to step out and shake a leg whenever there is a function or a festival in the community. On traditional Ooty theme nights, they celebrate you with songs and dance set to the local Baduga music, which you and your family will be tempted to join in.

After all that dancing makes you hungry on traditional Ooty theme night, there’s a live demonstration of Baduga cuisine on the lawns using traditional earthen pots set over a wood fire, to give the food the rustic flavour of the hills. Featuring dishes like Baduguru Koi Udaka or Baduga Chicken Curry and Avarai Gaasu Udhakka or Beans with Potato Curry and Ottu Kudi Udhakka or Bamboo Shoot Curry with Badai or Vadas and Ragi Porridge to mop it all up. There is also an assortment of chutneys that will tantalize your taste buds and plenty of Maasu Neeru or Rasam and Majjige or Buttermilk to wash it all down. End on a sweet note with Thuppadhittu or Pancakes laden with copious amounts of locally made ghee. Follow this up with some more dancing to help you work off the calories before calling it a night.
