I love how my family celebrates almost all Indian festivals… with what else but food. 😋
During Eid, Mom makes biriyani and kheer. For Pongal, she prepares the sweet rice pongal… and so on.
Today is Pongal/Sankranti. Our neighbours sent us lots of goodies as you can see.
I love the fact that our neighbours (referring to many homes on our lane, not just those next door) have this tradition of sharing homemade goodness during festivals.
Mommy’s feeling a bit under the weather (speaking of which, the Bangalore weather is unpredictable) so I decided to make Pongal myself, while Mommy was resting. I really, really wanted to make it. Maybe it was the fear of breaking the tradition. Or my newfound love for cooking. 🙂
And it turned out delicious, if I may say so myself.
Happy, yummy festivities to all of you!
