This kali is a special item that's made on Thiruvaadhirai Nonbu(pooja), which is also known as Aarudraa dharisanam, a festival dedicated to lord Nataraja.Its celebrated in the month of margazhi(december- january)on full moon.I used to love this kali when my mom did...Used to wonder why she does only ones a year...Thiruvadhirai was special .Normally Indian women (in olden days)used to eat after their husband.This was the only day when they eat before husband.
My mom used to get up very early ,cook then do pooja and eat along with me before the sunrise and then she fasts the whole day.... good old days...
