This Diwali.

Inspired by YY, I managed to make this. Came out pretty good. Diwali Bakshanam under 10 minutes! Whowuddathunkit! Had people over for dinner tonight. In between nursing Antu and feeding Ashu and all the cooking and cleaning and making the kids sleep - hardly spoke two words with the guests. Whats the point, I ask! And Diwali on a Monday. Sigh! Ashu has a bad cold so dont know if she ll be going to school tomorrow. If only Hd can take off from work tomorrow, we all can sleep the day off! Whats Diwali without all the noise of bursting crackers anyway! Diwali used to be all about the "pudhu dress" back then. The charm is gone now since every shopping spree is about clothes these days! But the poor dad of mine bought all of us diwali clothes when he arrived last month. A pink(!) Tee shirt for Hd, some funky outfits for Ashu, a double XL(ahem!) salwar for me and some cute frocks for Antu. So gotta make do and pretend as if its a special day for Ashus sake. After all, first Diwali for Antu too. Since we were in India then, Ashus first was a blast! Poor Antu! Us second borns are always neglected. Anyway, Happy Deepavali, Folks! You have a good one.

Madura said...

WOW Kadalaimittai :)
If only I could make it perfectly I could make prax dance to my tunes!!! :))) ...
I have always thought of it as an industrial product! I should try now! I love it too.

Caramalize? Without water? Because I am imagining if water goes, then only gambi patham comes - when would it become brown?

My pa brought the most special kadalamittai's all the way from kovilpatti for this diwali for his special SIL - almost half a kg, and the box was empty before the crackers stopped coloring the skies! :)

I will have to try and master this recipe.

Hey happy Deepavali :)
You-second-borns are neglected, while the joy of us-first-borns lasts only till the you-second- ones are born, isnt it Ashu? :P
