This year was a little different. There were too many challenges on the home front and I was unsure if we could keep up the festive spirit as in the previous years; but there was a welcome change at the last minute. My sis-in-law was with us during this time, and thanks to her, together we put up a wonderful treat :). We could not follow the fasting and pooja before noon; we put all the neivedhyam before the Lord only in the evening. And I suppose all items were first tasted by my daughter as soon as they were prepared. But I suppose Lord Ganesh is not complaining :)
Stay tuned for the recipe of Ellu Urundai, Parauppu Vadai, and Ellu Kozhukattai :).
