Ganesh Chathurthi - Ammini Kozhukattai

Ammini Kozhukattai

One more recipe of Kozhukattai,which is very easy to make. it is a savoury version so I love this a lot. We usually make this a lot during Navaratri and Ganesh Chathurthi. 


Processed Rice Flour/Idiyappam Flour - 1 Cup
Water - As required (I needed about 2.5 Cups)
Salt - As required
Idly Milagai Podi - 1 Tablespoon
Coconut - 2 Tablespoon (Shredded)
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 Teaspoon
Curry Leaves - 4 Nos
Dry Red Chilli - 2 (Optional)
Oil - 1 Teaspoon (Preferably Coconut or Sesame Oil)


 In a vessel add the rice flour,Salt. To this, add the boiling water and mix well using a wooden Spatula. Make a soft dough.

Once it is warm enough for you handle it knead it well. Smear some oil on your hands if required.

Cover with a wet muslin cloth so the dough does not dry up and crack.

Using this dough, make small balls. The smaller the better.

While making these balls, ensure that you take a little quantity at a time and rest of the dough is covered with the wet towel.

Steam these in a greased Idly Pot for 10 minutes on a medium flame.

Heat a pan, with a tablespoon of oil and once it is hot add the mustard seeds and allow them to splutter. 

Then add the Curry Leaves and Red Chilli. Add the steamed Balls,Idly Milagai Podi and Coconut and gently toss them.

You can adjust Milagai Podi and Coconut to suit your Taste.
