THIRUVADIRAI KALI RECIPE |THIRUVATHIRA KALI

         Thiruvadirai is favored for Lord Shiva, on the day of Thiruvadirai star in Marghazhi (November-December)and  is a festival of great importance. The sweet dish offering on this day, Thiruvadirai kali,  and today i am sharing the recipe of Thiruvadirai Kali recipe.

        When I called up mom yesterday for the recipe, she told me the entire procedure and I remember her making in a heavy bottomed Brass vessel called “URULI”. Since I don’t have this here I made in pressure cooker like we make Arisi Upma.

  • Add the coconut and cardamom powder to this.

  • Grind the roasted rice in a mixer into a rava consistency. Don’t grind it too much into a powder. It should be of semolina(rava) consistency.

  • Add this to the boiling jaggery water and add the cooked moong dal.
  • Add ghee.
  • Mix well and pressure cook till 2-3 whistles.
  • Thiruvadirai Kali is ready for neivedhyam.

Notes:

  1. It took 4 cups of water for me to cook . The measurement depends upon the nature of rice. If the rice is too old it needs lot of water. If it is new rice, 2-3 cups is enough.
  2. You can cook this in open flame as we do for rava upma. Since My mom gave me an easy option I have done this in pressure cooker.
  3. Instead of cooking the moong dal separately it can be roasted along with rice and can be ground along with it.
