Sweet Kozhukattai Recipe
As vinayagar chaturthi is fast approaching I am here posting few special recipes for the occasion. I have already posted pidi kozhukattai savoury version last yr so this year  wanted to give the sweet pidikozhukattai(vella pidi kozhukattai) a try and it came out soo good.It is sure a treat for all sweet lovers like me :) I usually prefer the sweet kozhukattai than the savory version.

Trust me, this is very easy to make without any fuss / major flops...Amma makes both version of pidikozhukattai the one made with rice flour and with broken rice that I am posting it here...
