Happy New Year – 2017 with Madraasi

Standard

New Year starts with a happy note and holiday for all of us. Like everyone we had a fantastic New Year celebration at home, I baked Gingerbread cake and made rockcandy/Karkandu Pongal which is an authentic and traditional tamilian sweet for the start of the NEWYEAR. Later followed by Mutton Biryani, Mutton Dalcha (very first time I got to prepare this) and onion raita for our lunch. Watched a new movie, had fun time with kids, chit-chat with my hubby about the last year and how to be this year, as only “CHANGES are permanent” – there were few good and bad things in this year.

This year accepting the changes, looking and love to get surrounded by positive vibes around me and also like to spread positive vibes to people I come across in my daily life.

As all of us knew how precious the time is, I don’t want to waste my time with …, hear non-sense and deal with stupidest, but planned to share my time equally with my blog, family and few hours for me. When I look back to my blog, and when it was loaded with full and full of food posts, I got to remember that my blog is a personal blog and wonder where my other works have gone.  And so this year my blog will be having the scribbles like earlier as before – Stay tuned for the TAMILIAN TALES.

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.
