These mini balls (including the Paal Kozhukattai) are often treated to us in the evening of Ganesh Chathurthi festival. During the morning pooja, Payasam, vada and the main sweet and savoury modak (tomorrow's post) are offered to God as Prasadam and when you make these batchanams in larger quantities, often there will be leftovers. No matter how accurately you measure, it is difficult to get the exact quantity for the number of people and that's when you get side treats like these Ammini Kozhukattais.
The excess pooranam in the savoury kozhukattai and the excess dough is combined to form this recipe. The best part is you can refrigerate the dough and the pooranam and make this the next day too.
