Today's thali is a festive thali which we usually make it for Chitra Pournami day(full moon day comes in the month of April) for the pooja naivedhyam along with panakam,neer mor and fruits.
We don't use onion,garlic and other garam masalas but my kiddo doesn't like other variety rice except some kind of pulao,so I made tomato pulao for him.
The rice varieties I made on that day was
- Kalkand sadham(sugar candy rice)
- Puliotharai(tamarind rice)
- Mangai sadham(mango rice)
- Tomato pulao(tomato pulao)
- Thayir sadham(curd rice).
The accompaniments are
- Green peas curry
- Potato chips
- Kothamalli thokku
