Karuppatti Paniyaram and Alangai is authentic dish done on 'Vinayagar Nombu' in chettinad. This is celebrated on 21st day from  'Thirukarthikai' when Sashti and Sathyam coincide together (Thithi and Nakshathiram). For this 21 days they will not eat non veg. On 21st day all nagarathar will celebrate vinayagar nombu festival as family/group. It is celebrated in their respective house and nagarthar's who are away from home will go to 'Nagarthar Madam' to celebrate with other Nagarthar's. Vinayagar Nombu is especially celebrated to take 'alangai' which is known as 'ezhai eduthal'. They prepare 5 types of dishes like vadai, vellai paniyaram, karuppatti paniyaram, pasipayaru poriyal, Alangai and will put ' kolam' in front of the pooja room and keep all these prepared dishes there and pray to Vinayagar. Then the elder person of the family will take the ezhai followed by younger persons and the last ezhai will also be taken by the elder person

They will take 21 thread from new cotton white cloth and make it as 'thiri' and count the family members and and cut 1 inch thiri for each member in the family.  Then they will place the remaining thiri in the Maada Villakku and light it.
