Picture Courtesy – My friend ArchanaVaralakshmi Vratham is a most auspicious festival celebrated by married woman(Hindu) to commemorate Goddess Mahalakshmi."Vara" means "boon" and Goddess Lakshmi grants all boons to those who performs pooja with utmost devotion on this day.Varalakshmi Vratam is most popular in South Indian states like Andhra Pradesh,Karnataka,Tamil nadu & North Indian states like Maharashtra & Orissa.Worshipping Goddess Lakshmi on this day is equivalent to worshipping Ashtalakshmi ( 8 Lakshmi)– Goddesses of Wealth(Shri), Earth(Bhu), Learning(Saraswati), Love(Priti), Fame(Kirti), Peace(Shanti), Pleasure(Tushti) and Strength(Pushti). This pooja is performed for the well being of family members especially for the life of Husband & to get children,Wealth etc.Every year Varalakshmi Vratham is observed in Sravana(in Telugu) month(Avani in Tamil & Sawan in Hindi).It is celebrated on Friday preceeding the full moon day(Pournami).This year Varalakshmi pooja falls on August 28,2015.Those who cannot perform it on that day, can do it on any other Friday in that month.On this day,married woman should observe fasting till they finish the puja.
In my family,both Mom & MIL don’t have the practice of doing Varalakshmi Viratham but every Friday we do Vilakku poojai for Goddess Mahalakshmi.But still I am making this post as per a reader's request.A reader from Chennai mailed me to share the details of Varalakshmi Vratham with pooja vidhanam/procedures and slokas as she is a beginner.So I thought of asking my friends who perform Varalakshmi Vrata every year in a grand manner.For making this post,I took the help from two of my friends Shalini & Archana. When I told them about this post,they became very happy and shared their pooja procedures along with their Varalakshmi decoration pictures.Shalini gave me a book titled “Aadi,Avani maadha Pooja Vidhanam” in which all the important festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi,Varalakshmi Vratham,Naga Chathurthi and Garuda Panchami were discussed in detail with slokhas in Tamil.Not just that,Shalini spent nearly 3-4 hours over phone ,explained each and everything about the pooja while I was drafting the post.Without the help of Shalini,this post would not have come up in my blog.I must really thank God for giving me such a helpful friend in all aspects of my life .If you are a beginner & looking for Varalakshmi pooja slokas in Tamil,Right click on the images & click "Save as",download & save them in your mobile or PC and chant these slokas while doing the pooja.I have also shared some audio & video links for people who look for Varalakshmi vratham pooja vidhanam & idol decoration in Telugu & Tamil .Please scroll through the end of this post to check the links.Lets see the Neivedyam recipes list, pooja items list,Pooja procedures,Varalakshmi vratham story and slokhas for Varalakshmi Vrata in each step.

Generally South Indians especially Tamil people make dosa using Idli batter by diluting it.We make dosa for breakfast & dinner as well.Few months back,I got a request to share restaurant style golden colored,crispy dosa recipe.Even though I am happy with my dosa using idli batter,I wanted to have a separate dosa batter recipe in my blog.So I started searching for the same.I tried many recipes with various combinations and by changing the ratio of rice & dal.At last I was satisfied only with two recipes.This is one among them.I will share the other one soon.I referred this blog for the recipe.This dosa batter recipe is very easy to make as it uses rice flour.We need very less soaking & preparation time for the batter and we don’t need to use grinder for grinding the batter.An Indian mixie/Mixer would do.It ferments beautifully and this batter yields crispy,golden colored dosa as you see in the pictures.I made plain dosa adding less oil for Sendhil,Cone/Roast dosa adding ghee for my daughter and thick uttapam kind of Set dosa for me.Everything came out very well and I was absolutely happy with this batter recipe.Not just that,u can keep this recipe as a base and make many dosa varieties as u like.Friends,do try this recipe if you are looking for an easy & quick dosa batter version.You will love it like me.Lets check out how to make this easy homemade dosa batter recipe using rice flour.Check out my 35 chutney recipes to make varieties of side dish for dosa .People in cold countries,please check this post for fermentation process.
