Hai friends ,
Well and wish you all the same . Happy Tamil New Year .Tamil New Year starts with the month , Chithirai. Bitter-sweet preparations of neem flowers and raw mangoes are a must in the menu.This month is the most famous for all Car festivals in Temples . "Chithirai Tiruvizha" is the most famous festival for all the tamilians . Chithra pournami is also famous . Goddess Meenakshi got married to Lord sundareshwarar in the month of Chithirai . My detailed post on Chithirai Festival in Madurai Meenakshi Temple will be made soon .
People will draw colourful rangoli's in their home especially with lamps.......depicts this year must be bright and filled with happpiness.
Here comes my new year celebration in my home .
I will start with my rangoli in front of my home .
This rangoli is on my pooja table , a place for Kuthuvilakku.
Today's menu...of course a traditional one ..which includes all pure vegetarian recipes like Sambar,Vadai,Kheer,Poriyal,Pachadi and of course my mothers addition of Curd Rice(Lord Lakshmi's favourite ) .
I made Potato Sambar , Cucumber Pachadi , Mixed Lentils Vada , Curd Rice and Badam Kheer .
