Khara Pongal
Traditionally cooks chanted shlokas and verses from our scriptures while making Naivedya. Generally, one should have a bath before cooking for the Lord. Everytime / anytime during the cooking process, hands must be washed if comes in contact with the mouth. In other words, one should consciously not put their hands / fingers to their mouth. Another important point is that the food should NOT be tasted at any stage until offered as Naivedya.
