ADHIRASAM RECIPE | DIWALI SWEETS RECIPE

Adirasam
 Adhirasams i made it for the first time. Many of them make for adhirasams for Diwali but we don’t have the tradition of making this for diwali.  But i wanted to try my hands on Adhirasam. I tried it in my mom’s house when i went in June. My sister’s sil helped me out but unfortunately it was a big disaster. My mom went for  a function in Trichy 2 months back and there she asked the samayal mami the exact proportion and also the nuances of making adhirasams. And she tried this in small quantity at home and gave me the exact recipe. Yay i got perfect soft adhirasams.
Actually i tried this during Navaratri itself , though i wanted to make again today, i was totally running out of time.

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.

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.

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.

BADUSHA RECIPE | DIWALI SWEETS RECIPES

Badusha
Badusha|Balushahi yes you heard it right, i succeeded finally and got my perfect badusha . For the past 2 years i am trying badusha but somehow it was hard. Finally got it perfect when i made this 2 days back. I literally jumped out of joy . Thanks to my friend's mother in law (Mrs.Shanthalakshmi) who gave me confidence  and gave a lot of tips to make badusha. But like most of the mothers she doesn't follow perfect measurements. But still she gave me some approximate measurements. I am bit skeptical to follow the approximate measurements and was  confused. Sailu's kitchen gave me clarity as the recipe what mami gave was almost close to her and i adapted the flour measurements from her.
Now i can confidently say i can make Soft badusha, a perfect diwali sweet recipe. Try this badusha recipe for Diwali 2014. Check my  full collections of diwali recipes .

KASI HALWA RECIPE |POOSANIKAI HALWA| EASY DIWALI RECIPES

Poosanikai-halwa
Kasi halwa | Poosanikai halwa is generally served in our weddings. It is  either served for the breakfast on the wedding day morning or for the evening tiffin the before day. Though i am not a big fan of sweets, this kasi halwa always impressed me and i love it a lot. I remember those days sitting next to  my grandma, who is  a huge fan of Kasi halwa. The idea of sitting next to her is she will call the server uncle to put some more halwa for me(as i feel shy) and also she will have one more serving for herself. Few months back, when we have a small get together at our home my friend's mom brought this poosanikai halwa and it was very nice.  Later i asked my friend to pass the recipe from her mom and i made it accordingly and it turned out perfect. Let me share the recipe of Kasi halwa | poosanikai halwa.
