Fifth day of navratri celebrations. Today ‘Bala tripura sundari’ goddess is worshipped. She is the beautiful goddess of the “three / tripura” worlds – earth, heaven and hell.
Today’s dessert is – “garelu” , one of my favourite sweet and the first recipe I learnt from mom. I used to ask Mom to make it almost every month.
Hot garelu with homemade ghee…Yumm !! can’t forget them.
Along with recipes, I’m enjoying the photography experiments. Hope you like them too. I’m also learning about how different regions within India celebrate this festive time.

Now take a small amount of dough and flatten it on a greased plastic cover. (While flattening the puri grease your hands with ghee.)
