Sri Rama Navami
Happy Sri Rama Navami to everyone!
Sri Ramanavami is a very famous Hindu festival that is celebrated to celebrate the birth of Lord Rama. This festival occurs in the either the month of March or April according to the regular calendar. Navami means nine. This festival is celebrated on the ninth day after the new moon.
When I was growing up I remember helping my mom make the "vadapappu" and "panakam" that was made as "prasadam" (offering) to Lord Rama. I also remember watching the "Sree Seetha Rama Kalyanam" live on T.V being broadcasted from Bhadrachalam.
Lovely Santhi of "Me and My Kitchen" has blogged about Sri Rama Navami and also included recipes to Vadapappu and Panakam. Do check them out!
