Karthigai deepam recipes
Here is the collection of Karthigai deepam recipes with video in this post. Thirukarthiagai/Karthigai Deepam is one of the most important festival of lights in South India especially in Tamil nadu. It usually falls on Tamil month Karthigai ( pournami day) when the moon is in line with the six star constellation called Karthigai. It is celebrated in a very grand manner in Tiruvannamalai where they lit Annamalai deepam on the hill and and it is believed that Lord Shiva's jothi will be visible on this day. Lord Muruga took the form of six babies in a lake called "Saravana Poigai". On this day, all his six forms were united by Parvathi(his mother) and this way, he had six faces. Special poojas are performed to Lord Muruga.

Karthigai deepam 2022 i.e this year it falls on 6th December (on Tuesday). The idea behind this festival is to keep away bad things from life and welcome the good and holy things of life. On this day, we clean the house and draw rangoli ( kolam ) in front of pooja room & house entrance. We light oil lamps all over the house in the evening and we make some Karthigai deepam special recipes like nei appam, Pori urundai/Nel pori urundai, aval pori, Maavilakku for neivedyam and my MIL also makes kara appam along with these stuffs to finish our dinner. 

My mom makes a special karthigai deepam kozhukattai and rice flour lamp for the well being of family members. Here I have shared the links for all neivedyam recipes of karthigai deepam with a video recipe for making pori urundai. All are very easy to make and even beginners can give them a try. I have also planned to share few more recipes from tomorrow. Hope you will like these recipes and try it.

I wish you all a very happy Karthigai Deepam. Lets see the collection below.
