Sukku vellam recipe | sukku velam for krishna jayanthi

by Jeyashri suresh
Sukku Vellam | dry ginger mixed with jaggery, is a compulsory one we keep it for Krishna jayanthi neivedhyam. I never thought to post thsi as a recipe as it doesn’t involve any procedure. But a reader mailed me for this and i  replied to her in mail the recipe with measurements. Then i thought this will be useful for beginners , so here i post the recipe of Sukku Vellam for Gokulashtami. The main purpose of keeping this for neivedhyam is after eating lot of oily batchanams | sweets to make the digestion fully and to avoid any tummy aches, sukku vellam should be consumed. Also my Patti says, Lord Krishnar will be eating lot of oily food in all homes so thsi will aid in good digestion for Lord Krishna.
