Yesterday was Vaikunta Ekadasi. I have already posted about Vaikunta Ekadasi Last year. Click here if you want to know more about Vaikunta Ekadasi and the neivedyam i made last year. Usually for Ekadasi we do abishekam for lord Krishna at home. Here are some photos of my Lord Krishna.

Above: Photo taken during abishekam.

This big Krishna is now 11 years old and the baby krishna is now 2 years old. The stone near Krishna is a part of govardan hill. (Bought from Govardan hill when i went for a tour to Mathura and Brindhavan).

Above: Photo taken after alankaram. Baby krishna wearing a sweater coz' of the cold weather outside.

I made some thirattu paal for neivedyam yesterday. This is an easy to make milk sweet.

  • Milk - 3 cups
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Ghee - 1/2 tsp
  • Almonds - few chopped for finishing

How to make it:

Heat milk in a heavy bottom pan and bring it to a boil. Keep it on a low flame until thick malai forms. Stir continuously until it thickens. Add the sugar and cardamom powder and keep on stirring until it comes together. Now add the ghee, and this helps to take that out easily without sticking to the pan. Take it into a bowl or when it is cooled little bit, make some balls out of it and decorate with nuts. Enjoy!
