Adhirasam Recipe

                                                                Adhirasam is a very traditional sweet made during diwali and south Indian weddings only.It is a long process so it is not made very often at home.We occassionally buy a small pkt of adhirasam from grand snacks and satisfy the craving.
                         This time i thought let me try making this myself and post it.I did everything totally relaxed.The dough has 24 hours standing time so it was actually litte easy.
                        Two things are important for this recipe one is home made rice flour which i have shown in so many recipes and the other is pagu vellam which you can buy in stores.

Boondi Ladoo|Diwali Sweet Recipe

                                                    Boondi Ladoo is the most popular Indian sweet made during diwali and weddings.The ladoos are made little different in North and South India.The north Indian ladoo is orange in colour and the boondis are really small and it is called the "Motichur Ladoo".The south Indian ladoo is yellow in colour and the boondis are slightly bigger.We like both the Ladoos and the best of all is the Thirpathi Ladoo any day!!!!!
                                                        I used to get terrified thinking of making these Ladoos and Jangiris for many years!!!!but thanks to the fellow bloggers and their way explaining,which made it easy for me to make these tough ones easily.I hope few people benefit seeing my blog and make their sweets and enjoy.
                                             Ladoos have always had a affinity to our family.My Father in law used to call my kids "Ladoo Kanna"when they were little and when they grew up a little and when they started talking they started calling him "Ladoo thatha"and later on it became "Ladoo" his pet name!!!!
so whenever we think of Ladoos we cannot miss thinking about him!!!!!!(ladoo thatha).

Mullu Murukku/Mullu Thenkuzhal

                                                       During festival time my house used to be so busy the maid used to go to the flour mill everyday to grind some murukku mavu for my mom.Now a days there are lots of things conveniently available in the stores.I made this easy Mullu Murukku version.It is one of my favourite murukkus because it is a little spicy than the normal thenkuzhal.It is a easy murukku made during diwali time and of course it is a perfect snack at tea time.

MochaKottai Sundal/Navrathri Sundal Recipes

                                                      Today being first day of Navrathri I decided to make Mochakottai or Mochai paruppu Sundal.I didn't know the order in which sundal has to be made which day which sundal but coincidentally first day of Navrathri you make Mochai paruppu sundal.Sundal recipes are very easy to make if you only you plan it a little earlier.I soaked the mochai paruppu the previous night itself and then pressure cooked it and prepared the Sundal for neivedhyam.

Kadalai paruppu Sundal/Navrathri Recipes

                                                         Navrathri is approaching  I thought let me post some Sundal Recipes.I have already posted two other varieties of making sundal(sweet and masala).This type is quiet easy and simple and does not require too much time.You can make almost all the pulses in the same way except that the soaking and cooking time varies according to the dal.
