Karthigai Deepam Edible Lamps with Millets (Kozhukattai / Dumplings)

Karthigai Deepam Edible Lamps with Millets (Kozhukattai / Dumplings)

Usually we prepare kozhukattai/dumplings with rice flour and sugar or jaggery for karthigai Deepam. As all of us eagerly looking for healthier food, I prepared 3 varieties of kozhukattai / dumplings one with Rice flour, other with Ragi/Finger Millet flour and the last one with Kambu/Pearl Millet flour. Moreover I have shaped them as Deepam / Diya and also lit the lamp with ghee/clarified butter and a cotton wig.
