POTTUKADALAI VELLA URUNDAI | KARTHIGAI DEEPAM RECIPES

Pottukadalai-vella-urundai
Pottukadalai Vella urundai is made for Karthigai Deepam in my mil's place. Many other Brahmin families don't have the tradition of making this pootukadalai urudai for Festivals as they don't consider it as auspicious. Being the native of North Arcot District in Tamilnadu, in my inlaws house for every function it is a must. Even for weddings, seemandams, ayushomam, Grahapravesahams, one among the Paruppu thengai they make should be Pottukadalai paruppu thengai. But being a native of Tanjore brahmins, initially my mom felt so odd to make this pottukadalai urundai and give it for festivals as Seer. Later she got used to it. Even for Karthigai Deepam too we make small Paruppu thengai, but since my mould which i keep here is bit big, i just made urundais. I just finished making pori urundai and pottukadalai urundai this morning for  evening neivedhyam. Wishing all my readers a very Happy Karthigai Deepam. Let the festival brings abundance of joy and wealth in your homes.

    I have already posted Kalakand recipe , which is a bit elaborate one. If you want to try an easy and delicious Sweet for this Diwali 2014, then here goes this Chocolate kalakand. I tried this with store bought paneer. I was in a  dilemma of whether to use store bought paneer  or to make paneer at home. During a casual chat with Raks she  was telling that store bought paneer too came out well. So i decided to stick on to the store bought paneer for this chocolate kalakand recipe. I am very sure your kids will love this chocolate kalakand for sure. Varun, who never eats sweets, after me insisting him to try this taste this kalakand, had a bite and hugged me and told"amma you are awesome"!!

    RIBBON MURUKKU RECIPE | OLA PAKODA RECIPE | DIWALI SNACKS RECIPES

    Ribbon-murukku
    I have already posted ribbon pakoda few years back. This version of ribbon murukku is an interesting one without the usual rice flour and gram flour combo. As mentioned in my milagu thattai post, this recipe too i got from my chitti. My amma passed on this flour according to the proportion mentioned by her. So i had the ready made flour and i find it very easy to make ribbon murukku with the instant flour. Even making the flour at home is quite easy one too. The ribbon pakodas were too crispy and a perfect snack for diwali too.

    KARA THENKUZHAL MURUKKU RECIPE | EASY DIWALI SNACKS

    Kara-thenkuzhal
    Diwali 2014 is nearing very fast and i know you must be busy in planning what sweets and snacks for Diwali festival. Murukku | Thenkuzhal is a must one in all of the houses. Last year itself my friend told, her sister will make thenkuzhal by adding toor dal to the flour, while grinding. After that i completely forgot about that . Before we visited India in June, i happened to see a Kara thenkuzhal recipe in a cookbook which my friend gave me. I noted down the recipe and got the toor dal ground in the flour mill to make this for diwali. Though you can grind in the mixie, always flour mill grind flours are very smooth in texture. And made this murukku during navaratri, when i  visited my friend. It was very crispy and i loved the flavor of the thenkuzkal too. Try this kara thenkuzhal for a change from the usual murukku.

    MILAGU THATTAI RECIPE| DIWALI SNACKS

    milagu-thattai
    I have been posting sweets recipes for Diwali 2014 last week and wanted to post few snacks recipes too in this week. Milagu thattai | Pepper flavoured thattai, is a very crispy snack and it tasted very similar to the Grand Snacks thattai. Those who have tasted the thattai from Grand sweets and snacks can relate to it. My sister tried this recipe and the recipe was originally from my chitti, who is an expert in making Bakshanams. She always huge packets of sweets and savories to her sons who are in US. My akka after trying her thattai, insisted me to try it and post it for diwali. It was very crunchy and melted in mouth. I made in small portions and it got over in a day.

    SWEET SOMAS RECIPE | KARANJI RECIPE |DIWALI SWEETS RECIPES

    Somasi
    Somasi | Sweet somas| Karanji |Karjikkai recipe is prepared by my grandma for Diwali every year. Though it is bit elaborate process but it is worth trying. I still remember my paati makes this effortlessly, a full drum of sweet somas along with so many other Bakshanams for Deepavali. She is my biggest inspiration more than my mother, as i grew up seeing her doing all the work efficiently and with lots of passion too.
     Many people make this karanji for Ganesha Chaturthi too.
