DWADASI PAARANAI THALIGAI


Ekadasi vratham is observing total fast (suddha upavasam) on Ekadasi tithi. 
Those who cannot observe a complete fast, the elders and children are permitted to observe this vratham by taking fruits and milk. People fast on 'Ekadasi' day and have 'Dwadasi Paranai' (special food or thali) on the next day which levels the acidity and the menu by itself is fantastically medicated. We don't use tamarind for this thaligai(samayal). The menu is as under: Click on the numbered recipe names for the link. Photos of the recipes are towards the end of this post.

  1. Tastefully done page. the authentic recipes for that particular day is a good reminder that we lost lot of habits in our rushed lives.

    Agathikeerai is difficult to get. Other s can be managed.
