Since Pongal season is Chill season with cool weather, the Kolam flour might be little moisturized. To remove the moisture the kolam powder can be dried near mild sun rays or warm shady place. Spreading the Kolam flour on Newspaper will absorb some moisture too. It can also be dried under direct sun rays, but some kolam flour might change color or might crystallize. Once the Colour powder or flour is dried they are ready for drawing Kolam in front of house or on the entrance near the road side.
