I have been thinking to share our amavasai vazha ilai saapadu for years.But somehow I couldn’t do it.Yesterday I made this South Indian style No onion No garlic thali for No moon day/Amavasya.Every month on No moon day my FIL used to do “Tharpanam” by keeping all these dishes in banana leaf.So we make Vadai and payasam along with Rice,Sambar,Kootu or curry,Pachadi,Paruppu,Rasam,Appalam and Pickle.Vada and Payasam/Kheer are optional.Some people make it every month.Vaikasi and Aadi amavasai are very special to us for which Vadai and payasam are compulsory.Yesterday I prepared all these dishes especially for this post.I love cooking this Amavasai lunch menu as it is very easy to prepare with less chopping and grinding works.It takes just 45 minutes to make this platter if you don’t prepare Payasam and vada.I have shared the method of preparation and recipes with links.Please click them to view the particular recipe.I have also shared more ideas for cooking a no onion no garlic lunch menu.Hope this post would help the South Indian beginners who want to cook a No onion No garlic food for their lunch.Please check out my Tamil nadu lunch menu ideas – 1 , Lunch menu ideas – 2 and a complete South Indian thali for guest with a detailed serving procedure if interested !
As I told in my South Indian full meals post,I will share a North Indian Thali very soon.Stay tuned !!
