During rama navami also they prepare this along with neer mor(spiced butter milk) and panagam. Though i wanted to post the panagam recipe, when i was about to make this i noticed that i was running out of jaggery which is the main ingredient of making panagam. So i headed upon to post the recipe of kosumalli. Will update stepwise pictures soon. kosambari INGREDIENTS:

MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP

COCONUT GRATED 1 TBLSP(OPTIONAL)
LEMON JUICE 1 TSP
