Since it is made with tempering lentils and with steamed rice balls, this is a very healthy and safe tiffin for all.Though this is made with the left over dough made for preparing sweet modhaks on Ganesh Chathurthi, this Kozhukattai finds a place in the regular menu in many households...

  4. Mean while when the balls are getting steamed, drain the water out of the soaked dals and grind them to coarse mixture without adding water like we grind for vadai.
