Kaanum Pongal

The first festival in the new year is the Pongal. Initially we never used to celebrate Pongal. I got introduced to this festival in Tamil Nadu. Yeah in cities people basically make Venn Pongal and sakkarai pongal along with other niceties like vadai and enjoy the food. Also new clothes and crackers are the other attributes.

I have heard in villages it is awesome. Some day when I visit a village during Pongal time, I would be able to update the details. After pongal we celebrate the Kanu Pandigai (Kaanum Pongal). Kanu falls on the same day of Maatu Pongal. On this special Occasion, sisters in the family will pray for the welfare of their brothers. This is a special festival for ladies. And ladies serve various foods to crows. So crows have a feast on these days.

Like Adi perukku, on this day also various rice varieties are made. This year my addition is ellu sadam.

Here goes the recipe list:

Ellu Sadam - Recipe coming soon

Enjoy this Kanu with various rice varieties and papads/vadams!!!
