Diwali Legiyam|Marundu|Diwali Recipes

                                                     We have seen so many sweet and savoury recipes for Diwali now it is time to make this yummy medicinal legiyam.In our house we use to call it Marundu which means medicine in Tamil.After all the sweets our stomach should not go for a Toss so that is why this was invented i guess.
                                                      It is quite simple with most of the ingredients at home except the Knadathipilli and sukku(dry ginger)which you get in Nattu marundu kadai.There is one famous Dabba chetty kadai in kutchery road mylapore or Salam stores in Pondy bazar.You even get the powder ready made in these shops.

Beet Root Halwa

All of us love beet root in our family starting from my grandfather to my daughters and nieces.We enjoy beet root in any form curry,sambar,kootu,salad and of course beet root halwa.This is my nieces favourite sweet every time she comes in summer for holidays my mother always used to make it for her.It is quiet similar to carrot halwa preparation but i have not added milk in this for a change.
