Amirtha Kalasam.

Divine food is special. Certain offerings are specially made for Deities. Milagu vadai is offered to Maruthi. Panagam for Lord Narasimha. Likewise Amirtha Kalasam is offered to Lord Garudalwar. It is a special offering and people who want to get rid of fears, skin problems, insect bites must offer this Prasad to Garudalwar to seek His Blessings.


green gram dal 1 cup
Pasi paruppu.

jaggery 1 and a quarter cup

cardamom two numbers powdered

ghee two teaspoon.


soak the dal for two hours.

soak the jaggery in one cup water for half an hour. filter it to remove impurities. let the mixture be thick.

grind the dal to a thick consistency. add jaggery water and cardamom powder in it and mix it thoroughly.

in a kadai add the ghee and pour the batter. Saute for few minutes till the batter comes together .

make small balls . now make the amritha kalasam, that is shape it like a kalasam or kozhukkatai or like cocunut. by practice you can make beautifully.

now put it in a idli pan and cook it for five to six minutes.
