Pongalo Pongal This is how it went down at home yesterday. Made Pongal, Sakkarai Pongal & Kalkandu Pongal followed by a traditional lunch (which I didn’t have time to take pics of). Hope everyone who celebrates, had a good day with friends & family ️ *please Swipe ↔️ for more pics*

This is a tradition that my mom has been following since her childhood and has never missed a year since then. She collects all sorts of handmade toys made of wood and clay. We have 8 trunks of toys and the collection just keeps growing year by year. . . . . . . . . #happysankranti #indiantradition #kondapalli #kondapallibommalu #woodentoys #claytoys #indianhandicrafts #indiantoys #festivaltraditions #sankranti2018 #sankrantiscenes #festivalofkites #colourful #indianblogger #indianfestiveseason #hyderabadbloggers #instapic #pictureoftheday #cannotgetenough #indiangodsandgoddesses #indiangods #lordvenkateswara #tirupati #kondapallitoys #kondapallidolls #pongal #pongal2018 #harvestfestival #southindiantraditions #southindianfestival

This year's Kanu, very special for more than one reason, most importantly Mom being here. This festival celebrates togetherness, especially of brothers and sisters. I pray for the peace and prosperity of all my brothers. #pongal #indianfestival #southindianfestival

Happy Sankranti! With Sankranti comes the joy and celebration of a new crop for farmers and everyone else. What the festival also brings is some deliciously healthy food made with two important ingredients - sesame and jaggery. Nutritionist Sridevi Jasti says, "If you're indulging in sesame ladoos or sesame balls, let me tell you it's real benefits. Sesame (Til) is rich in protein, lowers cholesterol, helps in balancing hormones and boosts nutrient absorption. And, jaggery in Kajjikayalu or Payasam or even plain, is loaded with iron, prevents constipation and helps detoxify. Jaggery, Gud or Bellam as it is also known, according to Ayurveda, cools the stomach and improves digestion." Enjoy the festival and the tradional food that comes with it, the healthy way! #sankranti #pongal #tilladoo #vibrantlivingfoods #healthyeatinghabits #healthy #organicfood #vegan #delicioushealthfood #sesame #ladoos #puranpoli #bobbatlu #vegansofig #traditonalfood #southindianfestival #holige #festivalsofindia #healthyoptions #sridevijasti #foodtraditions .#gethealthyindia #mindfulness #indiantraditions #indianfestivals
