How to Make Kozhukatai

  • For the dough: Bring the water to boil in a heavy-bottomed pan.
  • Reduce the flame to medium and add the oil and rice flour and stir well to get a smooth dough.
  • Take off the flame and mix further to remove lumps thoroughly.
  • Cover and allow to cool.
  • For the Coconut Filling:
  • Melt jaggery with a little water, in a kadai on a medium flame.
  • Add coconut and cardamom powder and cook for 2 minutes.
  • The filling will become thicker when it cools.
  • Transfer to a container.
  • For the Channa Dal Filling:
  • Wash and cook channa dal with 3/4 cup water on a medium flame till all the water is absorbed and channa dal looks translucent.
  • Allow to cool and grind to a powder.
  • Add the coconut, jaggery and cardamom powder and grind to form a dough.
  • Keep in a microwave safe glass bowl and cook for 2 minutes stirring in between.
  • To Proceed:
  • Make 1.5 inch balls out of the rice dough.
  • Shape it into a cup with your fingers.
  • Place 1 tsp of the prepared filling and cover to form a modhak shape - i.e., bring the ends of the cup together.
  • You will get a round ball with a pointed top.
  • Make these modhaks or Kozhukkatais with all the fillings.
  • Steam in a pressure cooker without whistle for 3 minutes.
  • You can place the kozhukatais on an idli stand to steam.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the cooker.
