    Hi Mullai Akka,

    Belated Kaarthikai Deepam Wishes !!
    I tried making Paal kozhukattai yesterday and ended wth sme left over rice flour dough .Smethng flashed and started making dumplings thnking of vuppu vurandai..whch my mom usually makes.
    I added everythng as needed for this recipe and steamed it for arnd 15 -20 mts. Smell was gud even the taste Akka !! bt the dumplings were not as hard as it shld be..anyways we finished it thnking of my moms dumplings..Was a gud experience thgh.. 😉

    Mullai, wonderful recipe.. i wanted to try this always. Your recipes are too good and so tempting. I have become a regular visitor to this website. Thanks a ton!! is it ok to prepare the rice granules in bulk and store in air tight containers??

    Mullai, the modern type of preparation of this upma kozhukattai, uses coarse ‘sooji’ (rice rava)
    to avoid the soaking rice and drying it process. Just make arisi rava upma as usual and once done, and still warm, make balls and steam it..so easy and tasty!
