                                                                     Aadi masam is here and even before that Chennai is sizzling with sale and festivities.From this Tamil month of the year all the festivals begin.I always look into Meenakshi ammal's "samaithu paar" for any festival delicacies(recipes).
                                                 I decided to make Thengai pal payasam which is important for "Aadi pandigai".They usually invite the newly weds to the house and make this payasam for the Son in law and give the couple new clothes and goodies.
