Print Friendly and PDF
I was searching for a low fat , steamed snack . I got this recipe from a blog . I did some changes and tried it.It was very soft & tasty.

sPICY KOZHUKKATTAI

 INGREDIENTS
  • Rice flour - 1 cup
  • Water – 1.5 - 2 cups
  • Oil - 1 drop
  • Salt - As needed
TO  TEMPER
  • Cooking Oil -  1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal -1 tsp
  • Channa dal - 1 tsp
  • Green chilly - 2 nos ( slitted)
  • Ginger - 1 inch piece ( chopped finely)
  • Curry leaves - a sprig
  • Asafetida - 1 pinch
  • Grated coconut - 1/4 cup

METHOD

  • Take the water in a kadai and allow it to boil by adding the salt & a drop of oil.
  • As soon as it starts to roll boil add the measured rice flour and stir well without forming lumps. It will become a soft, non sticky dough.
  • Let it cool. Then knead it well and make very small balls out of the warm dough by greasing ur hands with little gingely oil. Steam cook the balls by arranging them in idly plate. It takes nearly 10 mins to cook. Now remove the balls carefully and set aside.
  • In a kadai heat the oil and temper the items given above in the same order.
  • Add the balls at the end and toss well. Check for salt and mix the grated coconut.
Serve hot !!
