For Seemandam / Valagappu, its a tradition in Tirunelveli to keep Varavarisi as seer bakshanam. Indian pulses like green moong, cow peas, black chick peas, yellow peas dal along with peanut, poha, sesame seeds, rice are all dry roasted and mixed together with salt and spice. A very healthy snack as we are using all healthy pulse and we are dry roasting without frying anything in oil. Especially for valagappu its a tradition to make this nutritional rich dish. We need little patience to finish this dish. So nowadays most of us are getting this varavarisi from Grand Sweets and keeping it for seer bakshanam. But its not a complex dish, so we can very well make this and it would be a healthy snack for kids too. Instead of giving fried snacks this Varavarisi (varapayiru) is a healthy snack too !
