Making Diwali Rangoli with colourful lentils, rice, corns and wheat can be much easier and more beautiful in comparison to Rangoli with colours

For last few Diwalis we I have been making Rangoli with Lentils and other stuff available in pantry. I find it much easier to deal with bigger size pieces to ensure that boundaries are cleaner. The traditional way of making Rangoli in my village (in Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh) is to use rice flour in dry or wet form. At times, some basic colours are mised in rice flour which I guess is an evolution in designs over time.   May be, I should find some Rangoli designs used in my village and share in this blogpost as well.

May be, I should find some Rangoli designs used in my village and share in this blogpost as well. 

Above design is made with Rice flour and the surface has a layer of cow dunk.   For now, let me focus on the Rangolis I have been making for last few years using some colourful lentils, rice, wheat and corns. Before you make a decision about making Rangoli using this material, please keep in mind that it may take more time than usual and it’s time consuming to put piece by piece for giving broader shape and defining coundaries in your Rangoli. After the basic shape is in place, it becomes earlier and the tricky decisio is more about which lentil to use where to ensure the Rangoli is not dull and has appropriate contsract so that it lits well when Diyas are places.

One of the crucial aspect most of the people forget is that we start making Rangolis in daylight while the Rangolis should look more beauiful and shine in night. So making choice of colours accordingly it very important. I will not list down the lentils I use and rather have you look at the photograph and figure out yourself. Please do coment below with number of lentils used and names of these lentils. Happy Diwali !
