Traditional South Indian Snacks and Sweets

In India we have a tradition of sharing home made special Snacks and Sweets with our friends and neighbors for every religious celebration. Being Christians and Christmas being our biggest festival Sheeba made some Rava Laddu, Murukku, Achu Murukku and Adhirasam.
