We did two poojas this morning
One for the mind
and one for the tummy
Menu in telugu:
Guthivankaya, Dosakaya Pappu, Mullangi sambar, Tomato-Tomatillo Pachadi
Undrallu with allam pachadi, Pulihara, Bobbatlu, , Ravva Payasam, Appadalu, Oorumerapakaya, Perugu
So how did yours go? 🙂
Pooja in the morning at the temple, followed by “peth pooja” at my favorite Madras Cafe! Menu in plain Inglis: three different kinds of rice, sambhar, rasam, a different take on Punjabi kadhi which was absolutely delicious, dosas, idlis, green beans, a veg curry, onion pakoras, a kind of Punjabi choley (oddly enough), and two desserts: a kind of squash halwa and a kheer with vermicelli. Gorged manically and am ready for a nap! Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!
I had an onion bagel for lunch (sulk, sulk). Another reason I need a grandma or two in my life.
What the *%^&? I am definitely definitely coming. Just keep the oil to a minimum when you cook. And I am allergic to kasa-kasa.
I am going to be extremely nice to Rads from now on.
wow and yummy… mouth watering menu… Ganpathi bapa moriya…..
is the idol hand made by u? its very very cute… i used to make when i was kid and granny likes it a lot….
hmmmm….. u really wanna know. Started my day at 10.30 with a bowl of cereal. Then had chikpeas and orange juice for lunch. Went to football match in d evening and drained down the excitement(we won) with a bottle of beer and chicken. This was my vinayaka chavithi 🙂
ill tell u what i did. i had to haul ass to college only to realise tht everyone else had taken a holiday. and i couldnt coz i had taken off too many days to begin with. :(((((((((((((
Wow! Food looks amazing!!!
We went to the temple had yummy prasadham, and then to a friends place for a small pooja and yummy prasadham. :–))
SK – hehe, some days I go all out. Prasadam’s always yummy 😉
Baliga – That’s so sad! It was Saturday, Vinyaka Chaturthi, and you’re in good old Chennai. Why weren’t you off in the 1st place?!
Maverick – hehe, the idea is that you enjoyed. Thats all that matters 🙂
Giri – yes, I make one every year. This time Ganesha came out like he was on a diet, ran out of clay to make his tummy larger.
OK – *rubbing hands in glee* now I can up the price! ;-D
Terri – uh-uh, what happened, not that Onion bagels aren’t good food, I like bagels of any sort.. but really?
A muser – Desi restaurants pull out all stops on special days, and in so many ways, that’s just perfect! :))
Gee thanks, I feel super hungry now X-(!
Man, the food looks delicious!!
One for the mind and one for the tummy but both for the soul 🙂
pilgrim – that was deep! 🙂
Archana – lol, the husband would agree on your statement, with special emphasis on “looks” – Apparently I OD’ed the salt 😐
sighh… college has some fuck all HR policies. dont even want to think about it. though on the bright side the few of us who did come just ate ate and ate some more the whole day :))))))
Looks great. Translations for the Andhra dishes? I recognize Guthi Vankaya (even tried to make it a couple of times).
Hey yummy food…I made ganesha too..but with terracota clay!
Menu here was – Pullihora, tomato pappu, smabar, potato fry, tomato pachadi, undarallu..and smae pinch rava payasam too!
madsies – lol, picture please? 🙂
BPSK – hmm..It’s the usual.
Yellow cucumber daal, Eggplant curry, Radish Sambar, Tom Chutney, and Ganesh special modaks[not sweet] with ginger chutney, Tam Rice Puran poli and poppadums.
Baliga – ‘pet pooja’ was done right? Then good! 🙂
yesh yesh pet pooja done. 🙂 and btw i just saw the post was titled chavathi and not chaturthi. 🙂
btw i have tagged u attempt it atleast 🙂
Baliga – yes yes, going telugu all the way 😀
grrr@tag. See, I think Ive exhausted all random facts about me, anymore random and they’d lock me up ;-O
lol.. i figured as well.. even in konkani we say chavithi 😛 whch is why it struck me …
Hand made idol eh…Very impressive !
Oh my god! Look at the menu! Did you make all those? How many hands do you have by the way?
Mine went well too. All prasadam and no puja… festivals rock for atheists.
tdna – Did you miss the memo where I claimed I was Durga Ma, complete with 5 pairs of hands? I also borrowed my neighbor’s and my friend’s hands and together we each cooked up a storm.
We all have our priorities right?
