Navratri and Diwali Festival

There are three events going on for Navratri and Diwali festivals..Reposting some entries for the festivals ...

Chickpeas Sundal


For tips on utilising leftover sundal, kheer and sundal varieties, please refer to Navratri Specials and Payasam varieties

The following picture is of a traditional golu that is kept with variety of dolls of gods and goddess. The steps are normally kept in odd numbers such as 1 step, 3 steps, 5 steps and so on. Pooja is done every day with some neivedyam, mostly sundal for all the nine days with special pooja on Saraswathi day that falls on the 8th day. In the picture below there are idols mainly of Sri Krishna, Andal kalyanam, Rama-Lakshmana-Sita-Hanuman, Dasavatharam, Ashthalaxmi, Ranganatha and Raghavendra Swami .



Kolams/Rangolis are drawn in front of the golu everyday. There is a seperate kolam for Durga, Saraswati and Laxmi (each kolam being drawn for 3 days). The picture below are the three kolams, but instead of being drawn on the floor, they are painted with enamel colours on transparent plastic sheets so that they dont get wiped off. For more designs refer to kolams/rangoli designs




For Deepavali, the most easiest, quick and tasty sweet is Rava ladoo. Also Mixture stays good for some days and is a very popular savoury



For more Deepavali sweets and savouries please refer to Diwali Specials

The Navratri/Dussehra/Dasara specials are off to LG's Navaratri Festive Foods event


The Deepavali special sweet and savoury are off to Pallavi for the Yummy Festival treats-Diwali event


The Navratri as well as Diwali specials are off to Srivalli for the JFI: Festival Treats
