heheee.... I started making poornam kozhukattai for last year villaiyar chaturdi and after a lot of trials, I ended up making vellam pidi kozhukattai - just mixed the pornam into the mel maavu and finished making them.

It was way too tasty - even better than poornam kozhukattai... so this is what I'll be making for this year pillaiyar chaturdi too - this time I'll be following your real recipe for it.
