What a coincidence, Rani. I

What a coincidence, Rani. I too have made a kolam with rice paste today. But, I ran out of the preferred colors of sand. To top my problems, the local craft store is not stocking up. Although I bought some holi powders from my local indian store, I am yet to plan my mixing session in my left over half a kg of rangoli powder I got from India last time. Big smile

I like the design and the bright colors you've used in this kolam. Nice of you to share your experience with ants! Love

Mohanaji, I think you might

Mohanaji, I think you might be under the impression that most people make the maa kolam by mixing rice flour in water (at least that's how I've noticed you make reference in my champagne rangoli. Big smile ) But, I think most people will soak the rice and grind for their maa kolams. I do the same here. And, I save the left-over paste in the fridge to re-use for the next day as well. Smile

So do you make flour and then mix with water, or do you soak and grind (the old fashioned way)? Smile
