Kozhukatta is one of the popular dishes of kerala. It is very healthy and steamed one, as well. The sweet jaggery filling makes this even more irresistible. And obviously one of the favourite snacks in our home, esp. during weekends!
Also, as these are a form of modak, we even offer them to Lord Ganesha during Ganesh Chaturthi..
I made these dumpling on Sree's request. I know a true Kerala boy will always crave for stuffs like this... Yeah! even I used to coz my mom makes them awesome...
I borrowed the recipe from my mom, and my guy was all-impressed with it.. I love the moment when he said.. "Yummy honey! you made my evening.."
So here is the recipe by my Mom!
Rice flour - 1 cup
Melted Jaggery - 1/4 cup
Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Clarified Butter - 1 tsp
Green Cardamom, crushed - 2
Divide dough into medium sized balls. Flatten each ball by placing it in between the palms and fold them in such a way that they may look like a small cup. Put 1 tsp of filling into it, close the top by bringing all sides together and roll it into a smooth ball.
Repeat the procedure with remaining dough.
Steam these balls in a cooker or steamer for about 10-15 mins on medium heat.
Serve warm and impress your loved ones!
