Ellu bella thindu, Olle Maathu Aadu

Today's first Makar Sankranti exchange, banana, sugar figurines, bettle leaf and nut, berries and a mix of roasted til, jaggery, pieces of dry coconut, peanuts and roasted gram.

"Ellu bella thindu, Olle Maathu Aadu" is the Kannada version of "Til gul ghya god god bola".

I haven't made tigul today but instead our brunch consisted of this

I made various shapes of stuffed pastries with Aloo-mutter-gobi bhaaji. The cover is made of aata studded with kalonji. In the bowl you see a pudding made with cracked wheat and dates and drizzled with ghee.

Go back to my previous Sankranti posts:
