Navaratri Day – 7:

Shubhamkari (Kaal Ratri) – the one who does good, is the seventh form of Mother Durga. She has a fearlessness posture. Her left upper hand holds a thorn-like weapon, made of iron and there is a dragger in the lower left hand. Her gesture of protection assures us of freedom from fear & troubles. (Source – Internet)

I am a great fan of groundnuts (Nilakadalai/Verkadalai) and I love peanuts in any form – Peanut Chikki (Kadalai Mittai / Verkadalai Mittai), Groundnut Chutney (Verkadalai Chutney), Butterfinger, Kadalai Sundal, Nila kadalai Kuzhambu etc.
