Mani Kozhukattai

These are smaller versions of regular kozhukattai. And these are then stirred with cooked and crumbled urad dal which gives a different and great taste. I got the recipe from chefinyou but definitely could not beat her picture. The only difficulty in this is to make the small balls as it takes quite time compared to the regular ones.


Steamed Rice flour/Idiyappam flour - 1 cup
warm water as required
Mustard seeds
Red chili -1
curry leaves
urad dal - 1 tsp

Coarse grind
Urad dal - 1/2 cup(soak for1/2 hr)
Red chili - 1
curry leaves
fennel seeds


Coarsely grind the soaked urad dal with chili, curry leaves, fennel seeds and salt and steam them like idly

After cooling down crumble the steamed urad dal. This makes the spicy pooranam

Knead the flour with warm water and salt to a soft dough. Alternatively you can grind rice to a smooth paste and cook it over stove to form a soft dough (pls check the kozhukattai recipe for details)

Apply oil on ur hand and make it to small balls and steam them for 10 minutes

Now heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. After they crack, add urad dal, red chili, curry leaves and saute the spicy pooranam.

To this mix the steamed kozhukattais and serve hot
