      I often visit your website and have noticed that you don’t update it
      often. More frequent updates will give your page higher rank & authority in google.
      I know that writing posts takes a lot of time, but you can always help
      yourself with miftolo’s tools which will shorten the time

      This looks delicious. These remind me of savoury rice dumplings and would love to make these sometime soon.

      A different twist using paruppu usili. Have tried and tasted the ulundhu usili ammini kk till date . this sure is a new thing for me



      17th August 2020 at 1:37 PM

      I often make this and it is tasty. Adding of paruppu usili is something new to me, good to know that.

      Reading your post My tummy is growling. Such a delicious yet satisfyingly simple dish. My daughters will like this.

      Niranjana, I’m a huge fan of ammini kozhukkatai ever since I tasted it for the first time at a fair we had in our apartment complex. Since then learnt how to make it. However, every time I’ve made it I just do a simple tempering of curry leaves and urad dal or add idli podi. Yours with paruppu usili looks so tempting and surely going to try it.

      This ammini kozhukattai is kind of my childhood favourite…I always used to be fascinated with these small balls!! I’m sure with paruppu usili, it must have tasted great!!
