Hi Judy mam,

Now i believe I'm on track. I saw ur dosai maavu kolam. Very nice. I'll also try Rajamma mam's novel idea (Kolam dosai). Also, you had mentioned that this ur first try with maavu kolam. But it doesn't seem like a beginner. Your strokes are perfect.

I love your kambhi kolams, btw your border designs were good will implement it in my kolams, While in India happened to pass a grill shop, and saw lot of designs, copied some to implement in the kolams ...

Thank you Gowri for your

Thank you Gowri for your compliment - actually practice is the right word - before I got this almost perfect shape you see in the photo above, I must have tried putting this kolam atleast 4 to 5 times, erasing it each time I made a mistake and finally this came up, which I was quite satisfied with. I still need to perfect the symmetry between lines etc., (hehe Lata now you know why no stray dots in my kolam??) - but by the time I finished, my poor fingers were paining Smile

Hi Judy, welcome to

Hi Judy, welcome to Maavukkolam. One novel idea....Put in a flat dosaikkal this kolam with maavu then heat the thavaa and make this kolam dosai( if you can turn it up) and serve with chutni border!!!( I used to draw cat with maavu and make cat dosai for children)

We usually make valentine

We usually make valentine pancakes for our kids, who insist on wanting different shapes. Happy face is another favorite. I also use a non-stick pan to keep such fun projects easy to "flip" for me Smile

Looks very nice. First time attempt? Na, I don't believe you! Smile
For a first-time rice-batter kolam, how come you don't have any stray-dots on your kolam? Smile
