Kalkandu Sadam|Sugar Candy Rice

கல்கண்டு சாதம்

        Akkaravadisal and Kalkandu Sadam are almost same,both are milk based sweets,only difference is that we add jaggery and dal in Akkaravadisal but in kalkandu sadam,we add only Kalkandu.Kalkandu sadam is less sweet and mild taste when compared to Akkaravadisal.Both are my family fav Sweets.I made this Kalkandu sadam at the first day of Puratassi(masapirappu) to offer Lord Perumal.This is very simple and easy recipe,which is suitable for all occasions.
