Coming to Diwali celebration procedures : On the eve of Diwali,we burn crackers till 8.30 night and then we start to prepare suzhiyan,adhirasam & stack it in a box.We wash & decorate the diyas and other pooja items,put rangolis in house entrance and in pooja room & keep everything ready.In a big plate,we arrange all the new dress by keeping turmeric & kumkum in a corner of the dress.On Diwali day,we ladies wake up early in the morning around 4 AM,wash the face,light the lamp and keep a small bowl of oil & shikai powder in pooja room.The elder( my FIL) in our home apply little oil and keep a pinch of shikai on our head for sastram.Then we take bath and wear some old clothes.We ladies enter the kitchen and start to make vada, bajji,idli & sambar.In the mean time,my FIL keep flowers for all the idols and keep the pooja room ready.After making all neivedyam recipes,we place 2 banana leaves (one for veetu theivam and another one for magamaayi).We serve all the sweets along with vada,suzhiyan,adhirasam and Idli.No need to keep sambar.We also keep some fruits & thamboolam.Then eldest person(my FIL) in the family do the pooja and give dresses to everyone.We wear the new dress and start to burn crackers .After burning crackers for an hour,we have breakfast( Idli sambar) along with diwali sweets & savouries in banana leaf.In the above picture,i have shared our last year’s Diwali breakfast menu.After breakfast,we watch all the special programmes in TV & enjoy the whole day without cooking.Every body will have the sweets,snacks,vadai suzhiyan & adhirasam as food for the whole day .This is how we celebrate our Diwali.
