Rava Payasam/Semolina/Sooji Kheer [Festival Special]

Wishing all readers and friends a very “Happy Vijayadashami”. Each day of Navaratri is dedicated to one form of Parashakthi. Vijayadashami is the last day of Navaratri on which Durga invoked as Mahishasuramardhini and destroyed all the evil elements and killed Mahishasuran. Not only Durga’s victory over Mahishashuran but also Lord Rama’s victory over the ten headed demon king Ravana is celebrated on this special day. Vijayadashami literally means “victory on the dashmi-the tenth lunar day of the Hindu calendar”.

Vijayadashami marks a new victorious start in South India. It is considered very auspicious day for starting formal education on Vijayadashami. It has been observed as the day of “Vidyarambham”, the “beginning of learning” for centuries. The custom goes by making the children aged two to three years to write their first letters “ohm” and the first alphabet "aah in Tamil" in a plate of raw rice [nellu] by the guru with the right index finger in temples and schools. Students keep their books and workers their tools for puja on the ninth day of Navratri[Ayudha Puja, Saraswathi Puja], these are taken back and used after special puja on the tenth day[Vijayadasami]. Not only studies any form of art like Bharatanatiyam, musical instruments, Carnatic music etc. are started on this auspicious day and special respect and gifts offered to Gurus[teachers]. Check out other Payasam Varieties here.

Kara Sev/Easy Diwali Snacks

Kara Sev is a traditional South Indian snack prepared during Diwali and also during other times as crispy and crunchy evening snacks. “Kara Sev” means “Spicy Sev”, you can very well adjust the amount of spice according to your taste buds, but the measurements I have given here will suite all age groups. Kara sev is usually made with kara sev karandi (big ladle with holes), but since I don’t have one of those I have used the regular murukku press. Kara sev is made with besan flour, rice flour and other spices perfectly blended together. The addition of freshly ground black pepper corns gives extraordinary taste to these Kara sev.

Here’s how to make Kara sev with step by step photos…

Ellu Urundai/Sesame Seeds Ladoo

 Ellu urundai/Sesame ladoo is a very healthy ladoo made with just two ingredients sesame seeds and jaggery. Sesame seeds have a nutty taste and are delicate yet crunchy. Before the making ladoos I would like to share some of the health benefits of sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are very good source of manganese and copper, but they are also good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, Vitamin E, zinc and dietary fibre. These dietary fibres help in lowering the cholesterol and helps in controlling blood pressure. This ellu urundai I prepared for Ganesha Chathurthi as neivedhyam for Lord Ganesha.

Ammini Kozhukattai/Mani Kozhukattai/Ganesha Chathurthi Recipes

The first thing that comes to mind when it is Ganesha/Vinayagar Chathurthi is Modhakam which we prepare as special offering for Lord Ganesha. We also prepare different types of kozhukattai’s like paal kozhukattai, kaara kozhukattai, pidi kozhukattai etc. When we make modhakams or kozhukattai we always tend to have some dough left, this mani kozhukattai is usually prepared with that dough only. But nowadays we all prepare this mani kozhukattai separately as offering to Lord Ganesha. Not only for Ganesha Chathurthi, I make this mani kozhukattai as evening snacks for my kids and they love it because they are cute and tasty.

Here’s how to make Ammini Kozhukattai/Mini Kozhukattai with step by step photos…
