    so happy

    Dear Mrs Seetalakshmi,

    I am so happy to see the recipe of kadumpayasam. It is one of the naivedyams in our kula daivam temple of Pallasena.

    Happier still to see you mentioning Sathasathayam. We did that offering once in the Bhagavathy Kaavu in Moovattupuzha and could not stop drinking the Sathasathayam. Pls share that recipe also.

    Best regards
    Vidya
