To all my Family,
Paati's death left us with a heartache no one can heal but her love leaves a memory no one can steal .....
I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, especially paati even to death.
She continues to participate in every act, thought and decision we make.
Her love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared her love.
She's there with us always !!!!
We always love you and miss you paati.....May your soul rest in peace !!!

Wish all my subscribers ,friends and family a very Happy Nandana Varusha Puthandu Nal Vazhthukkal.May god shower all his blessings on all of us and may this year be as bright as the Sun with no natural Calamities anywhere in this beautiful earth. Lets Pray for that together....
"Puthandu Nal Vazhthukkal & Vishu Kani Vazhthukkal "
Vishu Kanni is done by choosing a place for the Vishu and put kolam and on that placing a mirror decorated in front of your family diety and decorate it with flowers, ornaments,garlands and place different kinds of fruits, currency notes and coins in front of the mirror.Not to forget the new Nandana varusha Panchangam.Reading panchangam is an oldest custom incorportaed in our family by my thatha Late Prof Shri H.Venkatraman.I still remember those days we spent with him.....It was all fabulous memories ....Then light the kuthuvillaku near that and early in the morning on the day of vishu, we close our eyes and come slowely near the place where the pooja and other decorations are done and open the eyes to see the deity through the Mirror.Also to see all the items kept near through the mirror.This has been done for past so many years and its so good to teach the younger generation about this rich value and the tradition.
Then the day flows with wearing new clothes after an oil bath and invite friends home for Lunch.Menu is as traditional in which you have all the tastes to be prepared.Like Payasam,mango pachidi,sweet pachidi,Jeera Poori, Poli, Vadai, Curry, Kootu, Sambar, Rasam, Appalam.
Then the day goes with visiting temples and relatives to get their blessings and ofcourse loads of entertainment programs in almost all the TV Channels.
Hope you all celebtrate this new year with full joy and get blessings from elders and your family deity.
NANDANA VARUSHA PUTHANDU NALVAZHTHUKAL...

So I decided to kick start this V Day season with chocolates...............yes 2 simple chocolate deeserts which require NO COOKING..........This Valentine special dessert is a true delight for ur valentine…be it ur hubby, boy friend, ur child or ur parents.
Eggless Choco Rolls ................On the first note,the lovely spiral design of this Chocolate Roll itself catches everyone’s attention. But after one delicious bite, its light and airy texture that seems to just melt-in-your-mouth, and its a perfect way to say "I LOVE YOU" with this sweet note and thats what everyones loves and remembers for ever.
I love the rich chocolate flavor of this roll, and while you can fill it with a plain or chocolate whipped cream frosting or coconut paste as I did in this recipe.The coconut filling gives an unique taste to this roll and its awesome........Trust me !!!!!
Homemade Chocolate Balls .............. Its another quick and simple recipe which carries more of ur creative skills....yes you can make it into shapes you like or fill in nuts or sprinkle sugar vermicilies or cover it with dessicated coconuts and the limits are never ending with this choco balls...........
Both these are a NO COOKING Recipe with jus few basic ingredients available at your
house any time and jus perfect when you have sudden guests.

Lets all unite together and salute Republic of India on this repulic day -Jan 26th 2012.
I thought doing a Tricolor Fritter or a sandwich would be apt to celebrate this day when we are away from India.Those who can visit the Indian embassy, do sing the national anthem (correctly) and salute the Indian flag.
