Carrot Thoran Recipe | Kerala Style Carrot Poriyal | Onam Sadya Recipes

Today I am here to share another simple thoran for Onam Sadya. Jany doesn't like to eat the carrot if it is cooked. So, we eat raw carrots and I rarely make carrot thoran/poriyal at home. Last week, just for the sake of posting it here, I prepared it. Both Happy and I liked it very much. I am planning to make it often for both of us. For more Onam Sadya recipes, check out my collection here. Off to the recipe:

Therali Kozhukattai Recipe | Bay Leaf Sweet Kozhukattai | Therali Appam | Ganesh Chathurthi recipes

Happy Vinayagar Chathurthi to all my friends, readers and their families. Today, I am sharing Therali Ilai Kozhukattai as my last recipe for this year's Kozhukattai collection. It is one of my mum's favorites and she makes it very often at home. In the place where my mum was working, for Karthigai Deepam, all my neighbors share us kozhukattai prepared using palm leaves. And, mum shares with them this Therali Kozhukattai. I can recollect many cherishable memories of mum if I think about this kozhukattai. It is very famous in my native since the tree with therali Ilai/Bay leaf is readily available in many houses. I prepared and clicked it during my last India trip at Jany's house since they have a very big tree in the backyard.
The strong smell of the fresh bay leaf enters into the kozhukattai/appam while steaming and gives great flavor to the kozhukattai. The house smells divine after we make this kozhukattai. My mum-inlaw helped me while making this kozhukattai and it came out super awesome. Both uncle and aunty liked it very much. I felt really happy when uncle was appreciating for the perfectly folded kozhukattai's. Do check out my kozhukattai collection too. Let us move on to the recipe:

Chakka Ela Ada Recipe | Ela Ada | Elai Kozhukattai with Jackfruit & Coconut | Elai Adai

Elai Adai is one of my favorite snacks that is made in my hometown. I was planning to click Ela Ada during my last vacation to India since finding jackfruit and Banana leaf is really hard in Sydney. However, I missed it and recently, to my surprise I spotted banana leaf and jackfruit in Indian shop. I grabbed both of them immediately since I had few recipes in mind. Jackfruit can be skipped if you couldn't find it. Let us move on to the recipe:

Vella Seedai Recipe | Sweet Seedai | Gokulashtami/Krishna Jeyanthi Recipes | Seedai with store bought rice flour

Advanced Gokulashtami/Krishna Jeyanthi wishes to all my dear readers. Hope everyone is busy preparing the snacks for tomorrow's festival.  To add on to my already existing Special recipes for Krishna Jeyanthi, I am sharing the recipe of Vella Seedai today. Last Friday I managed to try this vella seedai after sending Happy to school. Though it was not very much appealing like the Uppu seedai, it tasted so good. I reserved it for Happy's after school snack and I had a feeling that she will not try any. However, to my surprise, she started eating and liked it very much. She gulped almost half of the below-presented bowl in one go ­čśŤ and I am very happy. Let us move on to the recipe:
