Navaratri Series- Sundal and Sweet, Day 6

I really miss Golu! So I asked my cousin to send a picture taken from his golu and here it is.

It has 5 steps and usual dolls. The Dasavatharam, Kalyana set (my fav) and also Ashta lakshmi dolls. These dolls will mostly be sitting in the steps of golu in almost all the houses. Then comes the god and goddesses dolls.

Decorating the golu with small light bulbs, serial lights is also very famous. It gives a very rich look! Now for my today's Navaratri Sundal and Sweet,

Tomorrow I will share Golu pictures at my best friend's.

Rajma Sundal (Red Kidney Beans) :


1 cup Red kidney beans/Rajma
