It has been a long time since I disappeared from here! Reason being, I had been on a vacation to India. Getting back to the normal routine now.. This year Pillayar Chathurthi is on the 13th – Thursday. Am sure all of you would be busy with your preparations! This Sweet Ammini Kozhukattai is a sweet variety. I simply love these mini kozhukattais. I have already posted a Spicy version of this for those who do not have a sweet tooth unlike me. Check it out HERE. U can cook these mini buddies and make both the versions if u wish too.

Now to the recipe..

Method:

  • Dry roast the rice flour just until it is warm. Keep this aside. Heat a pan with water. Add salt, oil and milk to it. Let it boil. Simmer and add the rice flour stirring simultaneously.

  • It will become thick very quickly. Mix until it forms like a dough. This will take a few mins only. Transfer it to a wide bowl and press it with your hands to form a smooth dough while it is still warm. Keep it covered.

  • Grease your hands with little oil. Take a very small sized dough and make a small ball. Make the same with the rest of the dough. Steam it in an idli pot or steamer for 7-8 mins.

  • Meanwhile, dry roast the grated coconut in a pan until slightly brown. Keep it aside. In the same pan, add jaggery along with water. Let it dissolve and come to a boil.

  

  • Strain the jaggery syrup to remove impurities. Heat it again until is slightly thick. Now add the cooked mini kozhukattais, roasted coconut and caramom powder. Mix well & cook for 2-3 mins so that it coats the kozhukattais well. Switch off.

  

 

Sweet Ammini Kozhukattai ready!

Enjoy!

Tips:

  1. Do not over cook the Ammini Kozhukattai. Else it will become hard and rubbery.
  2. U can add a tsp of roasted sesame seeds too.
  3. Make equal sized balls to ensure even cooking.
  4. Roasting coconut is optional. U can add it as is.
  5. Water quantity for making the dough depends upon the rice flour, U might have to use less or more of what is mentioned above. Adjust accordingly.
  6. I have used store bought rice flour.
