Moong Dal Kozhukattai - Paasi Paruppu Poornam Kozhukattai Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF
Every year we used to make pooranam with channa dal. This year I wanted to try kozhukattai with moong dal poornam. My MIL told this paasi paruppu pooranam comes out more flavourful than channa dal. So I gave a try. It was very nice & we all loved it.. I think people in Andhra makes this kind of poornam for Ganesh chaturthi.  For variations, you can also use cooked green moong dal instead of yellow moong dal. If you are really bored of making chana dal pooranam / Kadalai paruppu poornam, try this moong dal kozhukattai for a change. U’ll love it..

I wish all my friends a very happy vinayagar chaturthi.
