Thursday March 5th was an auspicious day for people in Thiruvanthapuram, capital city of Kerala, South India. The locals celebrated Attukal pongala ,Pongala is a sweet pudding usually made with rice, jaggery (unrefined sugar), ghee and coconut. It is made in new earthen pot. The earth pot and rice symbolize the earth along with water, fire, wind and sky (panchabuta, five elements of life and the various species originated by the combination of planetary globes and the five manifestations of nature namely air, water, fire, land and sky) are combined together in pongala.
With this I mark the beginning of a new Journey in search of the local street food delicacies and request you all to be part of it. Welcome on board amigos ,tune in for an eye catching and mouth watering odyssey. #kerala #foodiesofinstagram #attukalpongala #thiruvanathapuram #godsowncountry #pudding #festival #feast
