Mansi said...

No amount of food or celebrations can compensate for the pang of pain that I'm not celebrating navratri in india, esp gujarat!!! Though I'm gonna go for garba and dandiya here, its not the same!:(

Rina said...

Payasam in any form is fine for me. I have one payasa for the RCI too.

EC said...

Very much Suganya ... nothing to beat mom's way of cooking.

Thanks Raks Kitchen, we also do varieties of sundal..keep checking back for the tips on using leftover sundal.

Thanks Lakshmi, Happy cook, Siri , Sirisha, Rohini and Rina for your expert comments.

You are right Mansi, you can never even compare the festivity in India with other countries although everyone tries to enjoy as much as they enjoy in India.

@ Asha, thanks a lot...yes, it would be a RCI.
