The word Krishna brings us an image of a naughty boy gulping down the butter or a cute little boy amidst the damsels enchanting them with his flute! He is known for his "Leelais" (pranks). Fondly called as "vennai Thirudan" (Butter Thief) and his liked by everyone in spite of his mischievousness. His Birthday is celebrated by Hindus as "Krishna Jayanthi" or Gokulashtami. Small children in the houses are dressed up as krishna on that day. People decorate their house and draw small feet of Krishna in their house in the belief of welcoming him home. This is a festival to rejoice.
This savoury snack is one of the many items prepared during Gokulashtami. Thattai is a very simple dish that can be made on any day. This can even be had as a tea time snack. Make ahead and store it air tight.
This for the fifth day of BM under Occasions theme. Check out the other Blog Marathoners here.
