    Re: Traditional South Indian Diwali Fare?

    Blissful
    Did you ask your inlaws about this?! Just curious. I think these traditions vary family to family. But by and large what everyone gives here do fall into the common category.
    Looks like its time to plan the menu!

    Hey Tina have you tried Boiled rice Ribbon pakoda. This is very tasty.
    Soak 1 cup of boiled rice in water and grind it softly as you grind it for idli Then add 1 cup beasan, slat to taste, Chili powder to taste and mix well as you mix for regular ribbon pakoda and deep fry. This is more crispier and tastier than the regular Ribbon pakodas. Have a happy Diwali:thumbsup
