KARTHIGAI SPECIAL


We celebrate Karthigai in the month of Karthigai in full moon day when the karthigai star comes. Mostly it will be during November end or December first week. I miss my father in law so.. much when i make pori urandai. He likes to have it, even though he should not have sweets. I made Aval pori Urandai , Nel pori Urandai, Kadalai urandai and Appam.
