UPPU KOZHUKATTAI RECIPE | VINAYAGAR CHATURTHI RECIPES


As pillayar chaturthi is nearing, i wanted to share an uppu kozhukattai recipe, generally we make uppu kozhukattai with urad dal poornam ,for which i have shared the recipe here. Last week when i was making Paruppu usili for lunch a sudden thought flashed, how it will be if i stuff the paruppu usili minus vegetable inside a kozhukattai as poornam. I just tried with 2 tblsp of steamed dal mixture which we use for paruppu usili to make 6-7 uppu kozhakattai. They turned out fantastic and was a super duper hit at home too.  I am not going to explain the detailed step of how to make paruppu usili here. Please click here for the usli recipe. For making the outer layer of the kozhakattai see here. So let me directly go the recipe without elaborating much on the ingredients list. Feel free to ask any questions if u have any doubt in this recipe.
