Kanji with muthira, asthram, papadam, and kadukumanga. Avil, unniyappam and banana also.
'Chettikulangara bharani naalil'...I was mentally singing this old song by Dasettan, when we reached Chettikulangara. We didn't go there to celebrate ulsavam(local festival of temples) as said in the song. Though we wanted to be part of ulsavam, we reached there 5 days before it. We went for the Kanji offering of Chettikulangara.

Chettikulangara has a tradition of Kanji offering, everyday from Shivaratri to Bharani. The entire area takes part in this custom, which is done three times a day. We went as per the suggestions given by our Food N Travel friend, Arun. We reached his brother's house there, a day before only. People were enthusiastically involved in making of unniyappam. We also joined them to listen to the stories of Chettikulangara.
The next day, we saw the making of muthira(horse gram), asthram, and the customs that followed. We relished the kanji and delicacies, with the rest of the crowd.
