Tamil New year Dinner with Mango Pachadi

Yesterday, 14th April was our Tamil New Year. We celebrated in traditional way of doing "Kani Paarthal" in the morning and in the evening after my Hubby came from the work we have done our pooja and had our dinner with Traditional food recipes Idli, Sambar, Chutney, Vadai n Payasam, Mango Pachadi and fruits. In my Mom's place, they celebrated well the New Year in traditional way.

My amma cooked lot of traditional food recipes for their lunch as i said the recipes on my yesterday's post. It made me mouthwatering, when i was hearing the recipes name from my amma yesterday telling over phone. I usually make paruppu vadai , cos my Hubby likes it very much than medhu vadai. But, I like Methu Vadai and Thayir/Dahi Vadai and all kinds of vadais esp my amma's aama vadai it taste good n crispy n yummy. I never tried "aama vadai" myself , i tasted only my amma making aama vadai that will taste really good with lot of taste she is having good hand in aama vadai.

My amma is always good in cooking traditional food recipes, i like all her foods if my amma make urundai ( make balls and feed us) or feeding ( ootti vidarathu) the food it will taste soooo good i will have lot of food while having like that always taste like Amrutham for me. Whenever i visit India or somebody coming from India , i always ask my amma to make murukku for me and to my Hubby everybody can buy from shop it's soo cheap and no hard work but can't compare with my amma's murukku with lot of effort she puts n making for us and with affection. My Hubby likes my amma's murukku very much, she makes very crispy it will melts like mysore paak.

In my MIL' home they have done the prayer made Sweet and traditional food for dinner. Today am gonna post my Sago n Vermicelli Payasam, Paruppu Vadai and MIL's Idli n Sambar, Semiya Payasam, Mango Pachadi. Me n My Hubby likes Mango Pachadi from my MIL's cooking, she cooks soo simple but it will taste good with correct sweet. Today, i have posted only Paal Payasam later will post all the below recipes one by one soon.

    Riya's one of the favorite dish is Managai pachadi. She started liking it when her Grandma made it for her last year. Now i make it for her frequently.
