Upma Kozhukattai is a TamilNadu special dish, which is the combination of both Upma (Arisi Upma) and Kozhukattai. This would be so tasty as our Kozhukattai but would be hot as “Upma”.
Feeling bored of eating upma?!!?!?!??? Then, you should try this better version ofUpma and Kozhukattai combo 🙂
This is one of our favorite/special dinners back at home. Whenever I prepare this at home, I always get reminded of my precious childhood days spent in our grandparents’ home. This “Upma Kozhukattai” was our get-together dish. Whenever we got together at our grannie’s place, this would definitely be on the menu for dinner, as this was the favorite of everyone 🙂 All the ladies would be chit-chatting in the kitchen preparing the Upma-Kozhukattai and we kids would be fighting and running all around the home. When I decided to prepare this on my own, I ensured that I got the actual authentic recipe from my mami. I prepared this dish for my friends here and their kids loved it as they kinda felt it fun to hold and eat this “Upma Kozhukattai” and it was fun for us to watch them eating it:)
