Sweet Kozhukattai

Happy Birthday to Lord Ganesh

  • Raw Rice - 1 cups
  • salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Peanut - 1/2 cup
  • Powdered Jaggery - 1/4 cup
  • Cardamon powder - a pinch
  • Ghee - 1tsp


For Dough

Soak the rice for 2 hrs. Grind the rice smoothly, add salt. The consistency of the batter should be very liquid. (say if the rice batter is 1 cup add 2 cups of water)

In a nonstick pan, add little oil and pour this batter and mix nicely till the batter gets thicker and make sure that does stick in hand. Cool them. Apply oil in hands and mix nicely to form a smooth dough.

For Stuffing

Roast the peanuts and remove the skin. Then powder the groundnut. Mix the powdered jaggery and peanut powder in a bowl, add cardamon and a tsp of ghee.

For Kozhukattai

Make small balls with the dough and flatten thinly with hand and keep the stuffing inside and shape them as you desire. Steam the kozhukattai in a idli plate for 10 mins.

Taste very nice if you steam the kozhukattai in banana leaf.
