Homemade delights on Prathamastami

Prathamastami (Odia: ପ୍ରଥମାଷ୍ଟମୀ) is a day dedicated for the firstborn of each family of Odia household. Sounds cliché, but the lucky elder one gets to wear a new dress and fed all good varieties of sweets and Pitha (pancakes).

This auspicious day is celebrated to pray for well being of the eldest one where the younger ones get nothing other than Pitha Mitha (no dress😃).

No luck on finding turmeric leaves in and around here (Cochin, Kerala) in my neighborhood. So with that disappointment, I made Stuffed idli, Peas curry, Angoori Rasmalai, Rasagola, and Kheer.

The highlight of this day is the Enduri Pitha, turmeric leaves wrapped steamed pancake with a filling of jaggery coconut, which we all get to eat at home. The aroma of turmeric leaves wafting throughout the house and the taste of it already making my mouth watery.
