    All of you may know about this, I'll share what I've been taught. Please
    add/modify if I missed any.

    1) Wash your feet and palms and perform aachamanam.

    2) After the rice and ghee are served, sprinkle little water on the food
    while chanting the following mantra, inorder to do nivedhanam to
    Bhagawan who resides in you as an antharyAmi.
    Om antharyAmiNE nama:

    3) In your right palm, have some water, and put it around your leaf(or plate)
    in clockwise direction and chant the following mantra.
    Om bhurbhuvassuva:

    4) Do the following nyasam.
    prANAgnihotramanthrasya bhrahmA rushi: (touch top of the head)
    anushtup cchandha: (touch the tip of the nose)
    vaishvAnarAgnirdevathA (touch the heart)
    prANAgnihotrE viniyOgha: (both the palms together do the
    semicircular motion starting from outside towards you)

    5) In your right palm, have some water, and put it around your leaf(or plate) in

    clockwise direction and chant the following mantra.
    sathyam thvarthEna parishinchAmi (during the day)
    rutham thvA sathyEna parishinchAmi (during the night)

    6) Then partially lift the top left corner of the leaf or you could touch the
    plate.
    Use only the thumb, index finger and middle finger of the left hand. You can
    skip
    this step if perumAL theertham is self-served.

    7) Request for the perumAL theertham to be served. First, sprinkle the
    theertham
    onto the food. Second, hold the perumal theertham(pAdhyam). Don't have yet,
    wait until the theertham is served for all.

    8) Chant the following manthra and then have the theertham without noise.
    amruthOpastharaNamasi

    9) Then perform the following prANAhoothi. Use only the thumb, index finger
    and middle finger of the right hand and take a very little amount of the rice
    and ghee
    mixed and swallow it without touching the teeth.
    Om prANAya svAhA (east)
    Om apAnAya svAhA (south)
    Om vyAnAya svAhA (west)
    Om udhAnAya svAhA (north)
    Om samAnAya svAhA (center)
    Om bhrahmaNE svAhA (center)
    SriGovindhAya nama:

    10) Now, switch the one you are holding with left hand to right hand. Request
    to
    serve water to purify your left hand at that corner.then chant
    Om bhrahmaNi mama AthmamruthathvAya (center)
    touching the centre of chest .

    11) Until you come to this point don't have anything other than what you had
    during parisEshanam.

    12) Have thrupthi bhOjanam.

    13) Have what you need to (food, fruits, water etc) before the utthara bhojanam.

    14) utthara bhojanam. Request for the perumAL theertham to be served. Hold the

    perumal theertham(pAdhyam). Don't have yet, wait until the theertham is served
    for all.
    Chant the following manthra and then have half what was served.
    amruthApidhAnamasi

    15) And pour the rest around the leaf while chanting the following.
    rauravE apuNyanilayE padmarbudha nivAsinAm |
    arththinAmudhakam dhaththam akshayyamupathishtathu
    ||

    16) Then, gargle 16 times, wash your feet and perform the Achmanam twice.

    Yo deva savita asmakam dhiyo dharmadi gocaraah Prerayet tasya yad bhargah tad varenyam upasmahe

    What I have been taught is:

    After rice and ghee are served, take some water in your right hand (like achamanam), circle it 3 times around the rice and then drink it. After that say the following mantrams as explained below:

    Om prANAya svAhA - take 1 grain of rice and swallow it while saying the matram.
    Om apAnAya svAhA - same as above
    Om vyAnAya svAhA - ''
    Om udhAnAya svAhA - ''
    Om samAnAya svAhA - ''
    Om bhrahmaNE svAhA - ''
    Harihi Om

    (one way to remember is PAVUSB- first 5 letters)

    Then start eating.

    After eating, take some water in the right hand(like achamanam), circle it around the leaf and then drink it. Fold the leaf and wash both hands and legs finally.
