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.

Kara Sev/Poondu Kara Sev/Garlic Kara sev

                                                          Kara Sev is a easy snack prepared during diwali time and not only diwali time almost all round the year.It is a perfect munchy snack any time of the year and day.I remember when we went on a tour abroad one family who traveled with us bought huge packets of Kara sev fried in coconut oil and the aroma used to spread throughout the bus.They used to share with all of us and we all of us enjoyed it through out the tour.

Badam Burfi/Cake|Almond fudge

                                                     Badam cake or burfi is a very common sweet in the Tamil household or south indian household during diwali time.My grandmom used to call it as cake and she used to make it when we used to visit her during holidays.From that time i was fond of this sweet.
          This is an all time favourite sweet in my house.I make this burfi or Badam kheer often since my daughters do not eat any nuts especially "badam".It is quiet simple to make.You just have to get the right consistency to pour in to the plate to make in to burfi's.

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.

Gulab Jamun Recipe

                                                    Gulab jamun is most peoples favourite sweet that is why it is so common in all the parties and  festivities.It is  easy to make that is another reason for it to part of any  menu.My kids love it and i often make it with the MTR gulab jamun mix which makes it even more simple.I feel it is very light and soft so we all love it.
Today i have tried it with khoya because it is festival time and not to use the ready made mix.It came out pretty well.
