Deepavali Marundu Recipe | Diwali Legiyum Recipe

Deepavali Marundu,is an important dish for Diwali. For Diwali, we would have made many sweets and snacks. All sweets and snacks  tempt us to have more. Having more sweets and snacks upset our stomach causing indigestion. To overcome this difficulty, our elders have formed a custom of making a healthy legiyum, (we call it as 'Deepavali Marundu') which is prepared using different roots like Sitharathai, Adimadhuram, Thipili, Parangi pattai, pepper, cumin seeds, sukku and panavellam. These ingredients are readily available in all Nattu Marundu Kadai in TamilNadu. If you are staying abroad, you can prepare the legiyum using this method. The procedure given below is the conventional method of making Legiyum. This is the legiyum which is prepared for the newly Delivered Mom. So learning how to make this legiyum is very good for every women.
