Tamil New Year

Iniya Tamil Puthaandu Nal Vazhthukal (Happy Tamil New Year!)

Today is the start of a new year as per the tamil panchangam. We celebrate this day with colourful Rangolis, New dresses and Tasty dishes.

The previous day, we keep a mirror in the puja room and decorate it along with the God's photos with jewels and flowers. We then keep the new dresses, fruits and flowers as offering for God. The next day, that is the new year day we wake up and first look at the God and the mirror that symbolises prosperity. This is similar to the Vishu kani followed by Malayalis.

Let us now check out the recipes for the dishes made on the New year... Click on the link to go to the recipe.
