SHIKAKAI POWDER AND GREEN GRAM POWDER (Payatha Maavu)

Dear Friend's,

I started this blog 3 years ago , when my second child was 1 yr old. Then as she grew up, did not find time for blogging. Till now I have blogged only cooking recepies. But this time its different. Its about one of  our Ancient Indian practice which  is using Shikakai for washing our hair.

Shikakai


I have gone to my native for vacation. Generally during summer my Mom and my Grand Mother prepares the items which can be dried and used for the whole year. Two items from that are SHIKAKAI Powder and PAYATHA MAAVU (Green Moong Powder used for washing face) .I hope we all are aware of Shikkakai Powder which includes many ingredients for the growth and health of hair. From my birth i have been using this Shikakai powder which is homemade. This time I have planned to learn the recipe from my grand mother and do it myself. Incase any of you need Homemade Shikakai Powder just let me know, I'll do it in bulk.
                                          
                                    

Please note that I am not doing it as a Business. I am also a Mom of two kids. I generally try to restrict my self from buying these kind of items outside. But nowadays we do not have time to do all these things because it is a long process and time consuming. So I thought I would help mommies like me to do this process. As this is not a business , I will collect orders and make as per the requirement. This is a product which can be prepared only during hot summer , so i may not have extra stock. In case you need it later , you can always let me know as I can do this process during October month (Purattasi month in tamil) when the sun is at peak.

For now I will take orders for Shikakai Powder and Payatha maavu (Mainly used for babies)
You can find below , the ingrediants and uses of the items I am using for making Shikakai and Payaytha Maavu. I buy all the items from reputed shops like Dabba Chetty Kadai, Mylapore , which is well known to Chennai people. It is a Nattu Marundhu shop which is there for more than 4 to 5 generations.
