 In this post, you can find the list of naivedyam / prasadam recipes of Tamil nadu, Andhra pradesh and Karnataka for Varalakshmi pooja. Varalakshmi Vratham/Varamahalakshmi festival (Varalakshmi poojai in Tamil) is the 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. People of South Indian states like Tamil nadu, Andhra and Karnataka and North Indian states like Maharashtra and Orissa celebrate this festival in a grand manner. This festival falls on the second Friday of August/ Sravana masam (Avani in Tamil). In 2019, its on August 9th, Friday. Goddess Lakshmi loves special dishes prepared with milk, jaggery, rice, coconut, dal and ghee. So people offer 3, 5, 7 or 9 dishes for Varalakshmi pooja naivedyam / prasadam with these ingredients as major ones. Sweet pongal, Payasam, tamarind rice, lemon rice, curd rice, kesari, vada, panakam, sundal, kozhukattai are the major neivedyam recipes prepared in Tamil nadu. Apart from this, people also offer white rice (cooked raw rice), cooked dal (paruppu) and little ghee for Mahanaivedyam. Some people also make raw rice idli. In Andhra, people offer boorelu, bellam paramannam, pulihora, garelu, chakkara pongali, panakam, pappu unta, daddojanam, perugu vada and sundal. In Karnataka Chitranna, bele holige, vada, kosambari, shavige payasa, panaka, sihi pongal, chakli, kodubele are offered to Goddess. In all these states people make similar naivedyam recipes but the preparation method and ingredients are slightly different. I have listed all the possible Varalakshmi festival special dishes for each state. Hope you will find this list useful to choose and prepare naivedyam.

Wish you all a very happy Varalakshmi pooja. May the Goddess bless us with all the goodness of life !
