Saraswathi Pooja is the final day of the nine day Navrathri Celebrations. So in the morning I made phirni and sweet corn saadam. it has been a divine experience so far. On the day of Saraswathi Pooja, all the materials connectied to our profession and books of kids are kept in pooja room. Once the pooja is done, you are not supposed to do any reading and any work with the instruments in pooja. Being a fashion designer and food blogger all my tools including scissors, measuring tapes and so much of my cookery books go to the pooja room. As kids we used to wait for Saraswathi Pooja as it was supposed to be a holiday for reading and writing. Hubby’s CDs, Sruti’s school books and note books were all placed before kalasam. Sorry, I couldn’t take a snap of that. A mixture of aval (rice flakes), pori (puffed rice) and jaggery is the essential neivedhyam for Saraswathi Pooja. I also made two types of sunda, one sweet and one savoury with green gram and channa dhal. The next day, Vijayadashami is quite simple. We just remove all the books, remove kalasam after a neivedhyam of banana and betel leaves. So I haven’t done an elaborate post on that. Hope you enjoyed this series as much as I did.
