Happy Makara Sankranthi!

Wishing all my readers a very Happy Makara Sankranthi! The very first festival of the year is celebrated all over India with great pomp and fun fare. Each state has a way of celebrating this festival. In the South, in the state of Karnataka, Makara Sankranthi is celebrated by making varieties of Pongal and Ellu with Sakkare acchu.

I made the Ellu and the Sakkare Acchu (sugar candy) at home. I didn't make Pongal this time though.

Home- made Ellu ( a mixture of peanuts, dalia, toasted sesame seeds, dried coconut and jaggery bits)

Sakkare Acchu - molded sugar candy

Hope this year is a bountiful and prosperous one for all of you!
