Yes - nikhilalōka nāyaki in dhanyāśi and śrī pūrṇatrayīśaṁ in latāṅgi are his compositions, along with some others of the same composition type included in the same. Let's also not forget his tillānā-s in ghaṁbhīravāṇi and sindhubhairavi. TKG is also a tunesmith for selected compositions of svāmi surājānanda and purandaradāsa(some pada-s are in varṇam form).

The Sindhubhairavi thillana as rendered by the Priya Sisters can be heard in the Thillana CD release by Amutham music. TKG has also set Bharati's Vellai Thamarai as a varnam in Rasikapriya. Also he has set a verse of Adi Shankara in the ragam Omkaraswaroopini (janyam of 62) as a varnam.
