Tamil New Year also called as “Varusha Pirappu or Puthandu” among Tamil people all over the world. It is celebrated according to the Tamil calendar on the first day of Chithirai month. According to the Gregorian calendar it falls on 13th or 14 th April. Tamil People All over the world celebrate Varusha Pirappu in a big way by merrymaking and feasting.
Today we got up early, my daughter and me together drew a beautiful Rangoli, decorated it by coloring, and lit a kuthuvilakku, kept in the middle of the Rangoli.
As a food blogger, already I have posted few recipes for New Year (roundabout). But I have prepared a authentic and traditional food for our lunch. There are three main fruits for tamilians because these are the seasonal fruits during the Tamil New year time and called as “Mukkani (Three fruits)” – Maa (Mango), Pala (Jackfruit) and Vaalai (Banana). So based on these three fruits I have decided my menu, but I could not get this Jack Fruit and so dropped the recipe with Jackfruit.
Lunch Menu :
- Steamed Rice
- Raw Mango Pachadi / Maangai Pachadi
- Carrot and Beans Stir-Fry / Poriyal
- Valakkai Poriyal / Plantain (Raw Banana) Stir-Fry
