There is no specific THaligai, but there should be one dish prepared with Planatain. Ofcourse onion, garlic etc should not be used. Only one main meal is taken and at night Phalaharam(Actually fruits but nowadays tiffin items) are taken at night, Ramachander

Apart from what Mr Ramachander had to say, in my home, "English" vegetables arent cooked on Amavasai.

Carrots, Cauli Flower, Cabbage et all.


Cooking on Amavasai day


Quite disappointed to see rather mundane responses - evidently most of you who responded have very little idea. I was looking for some inspired or comprehensive postings.

We all know that 'English' vegetables are to be avoided, as well as Onion and Garlic.

In fact the recommended cooking says even asafoetida, chillies (green or red), dhania (dry or green) etc are to be avoided. And so is any dhal other than Moong (paasi paruppu). Among spices only Mustard, Urad Dhal and Jeera are allowed, along with Curry leaf. Recommended vegetables are Banana raw, Seppankizhangu, Ladies finger, cucumber.

I would appreciate if someone could improve on the above.

Hi everyone,
Just to know what's behind avoiding all these foods !
The best thing to do is to be on an empty stomach (fasting)
rather than to be choosy and take tension!
One can concentrate better if they're focussed without thinking of the cause and effect of what they have eaten , does to their bodies!
Correct me if I am wrong!
