Ammini Kozhukattai - 2 versions

Ammini Kozhukattai for Ganesh Chathurthi:


These Kozhukattai's are savory one's which takes merely minutes to make. Earlier my mom used to steam the left over rice flour dough as small balls and season them. But these days, it became a tradition to make these savory one's in particular for doing pooja as it takes no hassle and it is total fuss free cooking. These can be made in many varieties like lemony kozhukattai, Sesame podi Kozhukattai, Sambar podi, Idli podi and the list goes on. Toady I've tried the simpler version of those for this Ganesh Chathurthi. Hope u all enjoy this.
