This is a traditional payasam made on Thai and Aadi velli.

Lakshmi pooja, lighting of Maa vilakku and performing poojas to the "NAAGAR" (Snake idols) at temples are some of the rituals followed during Thai velli. Sri Lakshmi Ashtothram & Sri Mahalakshmi Ashtakam is chanted while performing Lakshmi Pooja. Soundarya lahari and Lalitha sahasranamam are also chanted. Women exchange thamboolams.
