Kanu with Variety Rice

Kanu is Maatu Pongal - We keep kanu pidi (basically offerings to our ancestors) early morning and offer it to crow... I hate this custom personally. Because now a days we can see so many orphanages and so many kids roaming in the streets without food and shelter... Before my marriage, when I asked my patti "why don't you give this left over to the boy sleeping in the street platform?" She said "summa irudi periyavaa enna sollaralo adha kekardhuthan azhagu". They are ready to waste a bowl full of rice rather to give it to a small boy.. Thats why I hate this kanu pidi concept and most of the time never participate in this custom. Since I used to give lots of trouble like this(not believing in old tradition), my parents and patti were really scared when they started talking about my marriage... I am not sure whether I will get along with my inlaw and co-sisters in this concept and many other concepts(which I hate) when we go back to India??? Lets coming back to recipes, I made tamarind rice, coconut rice and avial on 15th Jan. I wanted to make curd rice also, but didn't get time to finish my work before 12 so just left it...
Check out the recipe for tamarind rice here, Coconut Rice and Avial here...

That's so like me, Vidya. Non-conformance to what din't suit logic was something that my parents were worried about too. In fact they used to say things like, "most parents worry about getting their daughters married, but our greatest fear is what you will be upto after marriage"!!! he he he...that's quite a spread you dished out, dear. And thanks for the wishes.

Totally agree with you...I was and Iam a total non-conformist. I used to hate traditions. But after marriage...all these traditions that I was running away from...hit me back at my face..I never did anything before marriage.not even cooking...anyways...let me not crib!!
