This is a wet maa kolam at the request of Ammu maam and Anirudh. The original one was done by Ammu maam ( Ammu maam this was not an easy task, I practised it around 4 times before trying it out on the floor. Hats off to you. Hope I have done justice to it.

Hello Ammu maam , tx for your comments, you inspired me to do this, it was a difficult job I must say.. pls call me Pushpa.. I soak the rice for around 4 to 6 hrs and use the mixie only to grind the flour, i dont have a grinder nor do i use one... just ensure it is really smooth that is all

Very nice pushpa. Wet rice paste is the traditional method of preparing. In bangalore we also get "Shudde" means it is the ready to use ('maavu - what u call') dry paste balls. Just crush and put required water. It turns to a paste. use either brush or finger for drawing. It gives the same effect.I will upload one rangoli made of that shortly. Similarly we get ready to use Kaavi balls and kavi powder powder . Kaavi balls is used with shudde balls - rice paste and powder when we use rangoli powder for drawing.-

Tx Padma maam for the information, I know of the kaavi balls but never heard of the Shudde you are referring to.
