RAGI DOSAI----MY GRANDMA'S SPECIAL

I learnt this recipe from my mom.....ofcourse she learnt this from her mom. My grandma belong to Singampunari . It is a town in sivagangai district, Tamilnadu .

Singampunari was an important centre for the Jains-Samanar. The most important temple in Singampunari, is the Temple of SriSevugaPerumaL Aiyanar Sastha. In the past, it was one of the places where oaths were made to ensure truth. It also houses the SuyamPrakasar who is known as Suyambu. This a naturally occurring Sivalingam placed to the left side of the main shrine. The famous Pidari of Singampunari has a shrine to right side of the central shrine. Many people believe that the old name of Singampunari was Singampidaari. This was supposed to have been named after the Pidari. Bali Karuppar, Periya Karuppar, ChinnaKaruppar, Brahmaayee, Adaikkal Kaaththa Aiyanaar, Ganesa, Murugan have their sannidhis. Other deities like Sangil Karuppar, MuthuKaruppar, VaLaithadi Karuppar, Sannasi, Saptha Kannika, and others share a common sannidhi. The temple had its own archives with thousands of palm leaf records. The 10 days Brahmothsavam is famous and draws huge crowds. The Ther Thiruvilza and PooPallaakku are important festivals. There is a peculiar festival called 'Kaluzvan Thiruvilza' which is celebrated only in Singampunari. For more details Click here from wikipedia .
