Peanut sweet kozhukattai - peanut sweet stuffed kolukattai - peanut sweet madakam recipe - Simple Pooja, naivedyam, Festival recipes

I love kolukattai esp on Ganesha chathurti / Pillayar Chaturthi I literally live on kolukattai. You can vary the stuffing to create new and interesting recipes. Peanut is one of our family favourite. Anything with peanut disappears very fast. My 1st son who is not a big fan of Indian sweet other than Mysore pak. I am in search for some sweet which he likes..So I was hoping that this one will be one of it.. Thank god he loved it. I guess it is because of Peanut
