Happy Pongal!!

14 Jan

This has been a wonderful year. I feel so blessed! To celebrate we have engaged in a food fest. Yesterday for bhogi we had ‘Ven Pongal’, ‘Kathirika Gothsu’, ‘Akaravadisal’ and ‘Kovil thayir saadam’. Today we had ‘chakarai pongal’, ‘kadamba kuzhambu’, ‘vaazhakai karamidu’ with saadam. Keeping up with our customs , I dyed a thread yellow and tied manjal around the paatharam in which chakarai pongal was made. How was your pongal? What did you do to make it special?

Edit: Yesterday for Kanu ( On Tuesday) I made avial, puliyodarai and pudina sadam. At 9pm I realized that I’d forgotten to keep Kanupidi. So what did I do next? Keep kanupidi. 🙂 All in all it was a proper pongal this year with 3 days of gourmet food. Maybe that is why Ani got sick last night.

    Very busy – yesterday…had to be at work/meetings all day until 9pm. I did mean to make sweet pongal and kadamba kozhambu but couldn’t get to it in-spite of being up at 5 in the morning. Well… I said whats the fun in eating w/o family… so I am hoping we can re-celebrate our Pongal on Saturday when you guys come in… really looking forward to seeing Ani pappa and the two of you.
