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.

Ellu Sadam/Sesame Seeds Rice

                                                                Sesame Seeds is what we call Ellu in Tamil.There are two types of Sesame seeds one in black and other in white.My mother used to use lot of black seeds in making ellu sadam or ellu urundai or in idli(dosai) chilli powder.
My mother used to make this rice on Saturdays of Tamil month(purattasi(sept15th-oct 15th)).It is a speciality neivedhayam for lord balaji(venkatajalapathy)along with paruppu payasam and ulundu vadai.
This rice is made when you fry the sesame seeds in some sesame oil along with red chillies,urad dal and channa dal.Then you powder it and mix it with cooked rice.When you fry the seeds you can hear a crackling noise!!!!
