Kuthiraivali ammini kozhukkatai recipe is a twist on traditional ammini kozhukattai recipe by using kuthiraivlai arisi(barnyard millet) instead of regular raw rice. I am trying to incorporate millet in our diet these days and trying to eat them for breakfast. Though I have heard that we need to acquire the taste of millet,we did not feel anything unpleasant or different in millet we have tried till date. I usually prepare ammini kozhukattai for breakfast/snacks and this time I replaced rice with kuthiraivali and it turned out pretty good,so sharing here the recipe for kuthiraivali ammini kozhukattai with you all 🙂
