Navadhanya Sundal generally my mom make towards the end of navaratri with all the left over legumes at home. But she never use any spice mix for the sundal. I kept in mind my udipi sambar recipe and used most of the things from that masala. Actually i clicked it last friday and planned to post it today. As i know my weekend will be too busy with navaratri Golu visits, i drafted the post too. Those who follow me on Flickr , then you will know, i posted the pictures i took for the navadhanya sundal. When i went to a friend's house for navaratri on thursday, her neighbour , Lakshmi, whom i know well, invited me to come to her house for Golu. Since it was very late,i just quickly went to her house and happened to see these cute teracotta toys in her golu.(the one you see in the background). As usual i asked her where she got it and she told to take it for my pictures. I said i am done with my navaratri posts and will use it for next year if needed, also told her not to take it out from the golu too. Then again i went to the same apartment for lunch in another friend's house. Knowing this, she came just before i was about to leave and gave me the cute teracotta toys. I felt so happy and for the sake of Lakshmi's effort, i made the sundal again in Sunday and clicked the main picture once again. Thanks again Lakshmi.
