Kozhukattai / கொழுக்கட்டை

This is a traditional sweet of South India and will mainly be made as offering to god especially for Karthigai Deepam. I’ve wet grinded the whole rice for this. Another method would be to use rice flour and steam it before using.

Rice – 1 cup
Grated Jaggery – ¾ cup (melt the jaggery in water and filter it)
Grated Coconut - 2 tbsp
Cardomom – ½ tsp

• Soak the rice for 3-4 hrs and then wet grind it finely ( very tiny coarse of rice is okay). You can add the filtered jaggery water to grind it. The batter doesn’t have any consistency. It can be watery too

• To the above flour add remaining jaggery, coconut and cardamom powder.

• Heat a non-stick pan and pour this mixture on it (Add a little oil if using a regular pan)

• Keep stirring until the flour comes together as a mass. You should be able to make balls of it

• After cooling for a while make balls. Keep the balls in ur palm and press with ur fingers. Also u can make “vilakku” shapes too.

• Steam them for 8-10 mts or until ready

• Serve hot with coconut pieces
