Feast outside with friends and colleagues is always a warm, refreshing affair and we, the people residing away from our motherland always look for such gatherings. This weekend we are all heading to such a wonderful get together and I am very much excited.
As Navaratri has just begun today, it is a custom and practice to worship Goddess Durga in these nine days and seek her blessings. Even in UAE , we all assemble to celebrate the pooja of Goddess Durgaparameshwari every year. All Udupi – Mangalore based folks would gather here in an aim to perform Durga Namaskara Pooja, the beautiful motherland atmosphere is recreated here amidst trendy building structures. How NICE.
While Mudde payasa or gudanna is one of the unique offering to Goddess, paal payasam is also said to be specific on this occasion. Paal payasam is a rich, creamy milk based kheer prepared with very few ingredients tasting deliciously awesome. Generally sugar based payasam are not of my preference, but on the eve of Navaratri I couldn’t resist myself from making this divine tasting paal payasam.
This payasam tastes rich and delicious when cooked in low flame, at the same time you need to take extra care in not to getting it burnt. Including few saffron strands to this rice-milk pudding will surely enhance flavor and enriches the color. I wanted to take pictures of pure white payasam, so I skipped it. But you don’t miss it please.
I wish all my beloved readers a very HAPPY NAVARATRI and hope you all are empowered to face the obstacles of life with the blessings of Goddess.
Meet you all with one more interesting recipe. Till then bye.
