Navarathri Neivedhyam

NAVARATHRI NEIVEDHYAMS 

Navarathri is celebrated for 9 days and traditionally the whole family gather to arrange the brightly colored dolls (Gombe/ Bombai) in a very artistic and presentable way. The house is decorated with colorful flowers and lights. Each house is greeted with a wonderful “kolam” or “Rangoli”. The emphasis is mainly given to Goddess Durga who depicts the evil being washed away by the good. In each state Navarathri is celebrated, where the concept remains the same, but the customs and tradition varies. Here I have compiled a list of Neivedhyams based on the day and the significance of the planets, which would be apt for the deities to be worshiped with our Neivedhyams and keeps us hale and healthy. Let us on this Navarathiri 2017 celebrate with the following neivedhyams and get the entire blessings on all these 9 days of Goddess - Durga / Lakshmi / Saraswathi.

Kondakadalai Sundal

Kitchen Tips # 27

Kitchen / Cooking Tips # 27

1. To prevent coconut oil from freezing in winters, add a little castor oil to it.
2. Store ginger under the soil to keep it fresh and take it out when needed.
3. To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
4. To get more juice out of fresh lemons, bring them to room temperature and roll them under your palm against the kitchen counter before squeezing.
5. Potatoes will remove food stains off your fingers. Just slice and rub raw potato on the stain and rinse with water.
6. To avoid tears in the eyes while chopping onions, soak them in cold water with their skins on for some time before cutting them.
7. If you have a problem opening jars: Try using latex dish washing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
8. If you accidentally over-salted a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato -it absorbs the excess salt.
9. Used coffee powder and tea leaves are good for cleaning greasy vessels.
10. While cleaning vessels for better results, add a handful of common salt to the cleaning powder.
11. To easily remove burnt-on food from your frying pan, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover the bottom of the pan, and bring to a boil on the stove-top. Frying pan will be much easier to clean.
12. Do not throw away the skin of cardamoms. Mix it with tea leaves to get a cardamom flavour in your tea.
