Time is flying like anything. I can't believe that 17 days have already passed. I still couldn't believe that i am a mom now. Was in a excited state till now..Being in a very busy schedule. I am finding a little time to look after my blog while my lil bundle of joy is sleeping. I am typing this looking at her rosy sleeping cheeks..Love her a lot <3
When i was pregnant with my girl, i asked my mom for this recipe. It was like a craving for me. I took pictures of my mom making it for you, because this recipe is our family traditional recipe. I am sure that you must not be aware of this recipe or even heard of it.
Only few people in our place knows this recipe. I am begging you to try this because this kozhukattai is so soft and packet with full of flavours. It just need few ingredients and few basic steps, but the reward is totally worth it.
It is so healthy at the sametime so filling too. We usually have this for breakfast and love it. If you are in a busy schedule, you can roast the rice in bulk and cool it completely before storing it in air tight container. And you can soak that rice overnight and make kozhukattai in the morning.
I hope you will love it and let me know how it turned out for you.
