Murukku/Thenkuzhal-South Indian Delight/Diwali Special/Gokulashtami Special

Murukku is a very famous and authentic South Indian[Tamil Nadu] snacks prepared during special occasions like Diwali, Krishna Jayanthi etc. Murukku means twisted in Tamil and made from rice and urad dal flour. There are different varieties of murukku like mullu murkku, thengai paal murukku(coconut milk), Kaara murukku, butter murukku etc.

This murukku is especially prepared in large quantities and shared with friends and families during Diwali. It stays fresh and crunchy for 3-4 weeks when properly stored in airtight containers. Whenever I make murukku, I get reminded of days when my mom prepares snacks during Diwali. Usually Diwali preparation starts a week before with shopping and making an array of sweets and snacks. I made this simple and quick Murukku for Krishna Jayanthi yesterday, so I am sharing it with you all. Meanwhile, do check out other interesting Diwali Sweets and Diwali Snack varieties here.

Badam Kheer/Badam Milk/Almond Milk with Saffron

Badam Milk is my all time favorite, I used to drink this in the evenings after coming back from school. But my mom used to make it with readymade mix available from the shops. It is a very healthy drink made in Northern part of India especially during special occasions and festivals. The recipe actually calls for sugar but sometimes I replace sugar with “panangkalkandu” as a healthy alternative. Other Tea/Beverage varieties that might be of interest…
