Diwali cooking

This year, Diwali included some cooking!

The first thing eaten in the morning (after showering) is a "lehiyam" or medicine – a concoction of herbs that helps you digest all the sweets and deep-fried savories you’re going to eat all day!

The recipe, if you happen to have the powder:

For a vegan version, I simply omit the ghee.

Next I made murukku:

In theory these can be baked (which I have done before), but on Diwali we feast!

For a sweet, I made appam, which is naturally vegan, and basically a type of fried banana bread:

Deliciousness all around.
