Multigrain Rava Kolukattai Recipe - Multigrain kozhukattai Recipe - Mixed Millet kozhukattai Recipe - Mixed Millet Steamed cake Recipe - Snacks Recipe - Pooja Recipes

When I saw Mixed millet rawa / rava I was so excited. I wanted to try upma with that. However the other day I wanted to do some snacks and was craving for kozhukattai. So I waned to try this mixed millet pidi kolukattai. It tasted so good with Coconut chutney and everyone in the family loved it. Since it is a mix of all the millets the blend of all the tastes (sweetness from Samai, Nutty flavour from Bajra (Pearl millet), flavour from finger millet (ragi / Kelvaragu) ) was really amazing. It is definitely a keep recipe

Kolukattai is a traditional dish made during Ganesh chaturthi / vinayagar chaturthi. During my school days my mum does it only during Ganesha chaturthi. These days you get it almost every day. I like both savory and sweet ones esp the ones sweetened with jaggery. The shop at Bay area near my Chennai office, has different types of Kolukattai. Bengal gram stuffing (it is a more traditional one) is my most favourite. I normally do it with iddiyappam flour but now days you get kolukattai flour too. You can try either one.

Sooji Poorana Kozhukattai recipe - Kesari Modak recipe - Modagam recipe - Ganesh Chaturthi Recipes - Pooja recipes - naivedyam recipes

Like I mentioned in many of my posts, Kesari  is one of the sweets that comes to my mind when I plan for any Naivedyam as that is one dish which gets consumed without any fuss in my household. So after seeing this in many blogs I decided to try this. I have used raw sugar to make this but you can use white sugar if needed. I have followed my basic Kesari recipe in which I use 1/2 water 1/2 boiled milk for making Kesari. It came out pretty good. My husband was pleasantly surprised

Pomegranate raita recipe - Sweet raita recipe - sweet yogurt dip with Pomegranate - Healthy recipe

I love to try different Raitas. It is a perfect side for our weekend one pot meals. I normally have this in place of my daily yogurt (in fact I prefer flavoured yogurt).  I have posted Pomegranate Potato Raita before. I wanted to do plain Pomegranate raita and wanted to do it as a slightly sweet verison. If you don't want it sweet, don't add sugar
