Both Krishna Jayanthi and Vinayaga Chathurthi are special this year, since this is Thaswika's first festivals. Both the days, she kept me engaged;)
Our little Krishna idols. My MIL was there for Krishna Jayanthi, so she did everything on that day. She made Vadai and payasam.

Now to Vinayaga Chathurthi celebrations:
Thaswika kept me busy on that day, she was litte cranky, so was with her till 2 pm. After that I started my cooking and had lunch around 5 pm :(
So didn't do much items. I made rice, capsicum sambhar, dal, potato peas masala, vadai, sweet kozhukattai and salt kozhukattai.
Filling of sweet kozhukattai was left over. So I added rice flour to it and steamed it. It was very nice. Usually, I wont do this, since, once the dough became watery for me. But this time, it came out well.
Once it is cool, add powdered jaggery, rice flour, salt, cardamom powder to it and mix well to a thick dough.
