Munthiri Kothu Recipe | Mundhiri Kothu | Healthy Diwali Sweets | Green gram Laddu

Munthiri Kothu Recipe
Munthiri Kothu is a healthy diwali snack which is popular among some parts of tirunelveli and nagercoil. This traditional sweet is less popular among other parts of tamilnadu. It is very healthy because it is made using green gram and jaggery syrup. It is crispy outside and soft inside. My amma usually makes this for diwali. As it is very healthier one, you can even pack for kids snacks box.
