Every year i make it a point to celebrate every festival possible, but those just don't show up on my little space in here. Back at home amma makes special " Unniappam" - small fried rice cakes ; for Ganesh Chathurthi, and away from home staying i here try my best to put things together and make in pure traditional , the same way amma makes at home.
Usually mani kozhuttas are made using the left over dough used to making Sweet kozhukattas, and more. This years Ganesh Chathurthi pooja was done with Spiced White Channa Dal, Ammini Kozhukatta and Sweet Kozhukattas or Stuffed Sweet Rice Dumplings My little one really loves this small small rounds.
