  • Coconut - 1 big
  • Powdered Jaggery - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 cup
  • How to Make Coconut Kozukattai:

    1. Grate the coconut finely.
    2. Mix jaggery with 1/2 cup of water.
    3. Stir over a low flame till dissolved. Strain through a thin cloth.
    4. Place the liquid on fire till a boil forms a thick syrup.
    5. Add coconut and cook till the mixture is firm enough to shape into balls.
    6. Add cardamom powder and allow to cool.
    7. For covering:
    8. Sift the rice flour to ensure that there are no lumps.
    9. Boil 4 cups of water with 1 tsp salt and 2 tsps of oil (preferably gingili oil).
    10. Remove from fire. Add 2 cups of flour, stirring the mixture well with a wooden stick or the handle of a wooden spoon or churner, to make a smooth lump.
    11. Continue to add more rice flour, 1/2 cup at a time and mix till you have a smooth, soft ball which is not sticky.
    12. To test, cool a small lump and see if it can be flattened easily on the palm into a pliable thin disc.
    13. If it is sticky, add more flour.
    14. Cover the dough with a wet cloth to prevent it from drying while you prepare the filling.
