Madraasi Pongal Celebration – 2018

Hope everyone had a fabulous, wonderful Pongal celebrations, we had a wonderful Pongal celebration. As usual woke up early in the morning made sweet and ven Pongal, offered it to sun god along with seasonal raw vegetables and had pooja. Our celebration started on Bhogi, the day before the Pongal on Jan 13th, by cleaning home, making garlands, tying flowers for hair-do, drawing Rangoli, and this time as I new basic stitching, stitched my daughter’s Pongal dress by myself. Glad and happy to say that I have become the Fashion Designer for me and my daughter, its not only my daughter but everyone loved the dress – happy me.

I am sure my daughter is going to load too much of works to me for her costumes. As she knew her mom (me) a lazy person, she shared her costume idea by now for her birthday which comes by April. When everyone was happy, the little fellow was angry with me and he wanted me to stitch costume for him 😊

Coming to food, I prepared Sweet Pongal, Ven Pongal, Mixed Vegetable Sambar, Aviyal and for the evening I prepared Mixed millets Pongal and shared with our neighbor’s.

Sharing few pictures from our celebration:

Cheese Onion Sandwich was introduced to me while I was in U.K, I use to stock up this sandwich spread all the time in my refrigerator from TESCO and like to have it with brown bread or white bread during my tea time. Most of the time when we happen to travel, this would be my breakfast, recalling call my beautiful memories when I was in U.K.

I am sharing this recipe with a heavy heart, as the mango season is almost over, with my last set of mangoes. Usually my family loves pancake to the core, and also, it’s been a great and quick breakfast for kids, when they go to school or even for their snack box on Saturday’s as they have just half a day school or also you can prepare as snack when they are back to home.

Making of Eggless Mango Pancake recipe –

Preparation:

  • Take a wide mouth bowl, pour in the milk, coconut milk, sugar, mix it well or until the sugar gets dissolved.
  • Add the all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, desiccated coconut and a tbsp of butter. Mix it well.
  • Add desiccated coconut, butter mix it well. Then add the flour/all-purpose flour little by little. Mix it well, make sure no lumps are formed.

  • Heat a tsp of butter in a tawa, pour a spoonful of batter in the center, spread it little.
  • Drizzle butter along the sides of the pancake, cook in medium flame (since we have used mango paste, the pancake would get burnt soon when cooked in high flame).
  • Flip the side, drizzle little butter along the sides, and cook for few mins or until the pancake turns golden brown in color.
  • Remove from fire.

Serve hot with butter or maple syrup or chocolate syrup.
