Karadayan Nonbu Adai - sweet and karam

Story of Karadayan nonbu:

It is believed that Savithri got her husband back on the first day of Tamil month "Panguni". So, this day is celebrated as "Karadayan Nonbu" in Tamil Nadu. On this day, married women and young girls wear yellow robes and pray to Hindu goddesses for long lives for their husbands. Girls start this practice very young; they wear a yellow robe on this day from the time they are just one year old so they will find a good husband in the future.



Sweet Version of Adai :


Ingredients:

  • Water
  • Jaggery - 1 cup
  • Rice flour ( I used Idiyappam flour) - 1 cup
  • Cardamom powder
  • Coconut - finely chopped - 3 tbsp
  • Black eyed peas / Karamani - 1/4 cup

Method:

  • Dry roast the rice flour until the colour changes.
  • Soak black eyed peas and boil it separately. Dont overcook it.
  • In a vessel, add jaggery and water. wait until the Jaggery dissolves. Now strain the impure particles.
  • Add coconut, boiled peas and cardamom powder to the jaggery water and allow it to boil.
  • Now add the rice flour little by little and mix well
  • Stir well so that its becomes a smooth dough.
  • Allow it to cool down. Meanwhile prepare the Idly steamer.
  • Take medium sized balls from the made mixture and slightly pat it and put a hole in between.
  • Make 5 - 6 like that and place it on the Idly plates. I used Plantain leaf since I had it at home.
  • Steam it for five mins.
