  • How to Make Gingili Seed (ellu) Kozukottai:

    3. Add jaggery powder and cardamom powder and run the mixer for few seconds till the mixture is well mixed.
    4. For Covering:
    5. Sift the rice flour to ensure that there are no lumps. Boil 4 cups of water with 1 tsp salt and 2 tsps of oil (preferably gingili oil) 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.
    6. 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.
    7. Cover the dough with a wet cloth to prevent it from drying while preparing the filling.

    9. Place 1 tbsp of the mixture at the centre and spread on the flattened dough.
