Purana Kozhukattai

Recipe and Photo Courtesy: Padmini, Srinivasan (my parents)



Ingredients:

To make the outer covering:

1 cup processed rice flour (idiappam rice flour)
2-3 tsp oil
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup water

For the filling:

1 cup freshly shredded coconut
3/4 cup powdered jaggery (gur)
1/4 tsp elachi powder (cardamom)


Add water in a kadai and bring it to a boil.
Add salt, oil. Reduce the flame
Next add the rice flour while quickly mixing with the other hand
Once it comes together like a mass of ball, take it off the flame and keep aside.
While it is still warm, pinch out a small ball of dough.
Push in your thumb at the center and make a cup-like shape.
Place the filling (recipe follows) in the center and close the ends to either make a kozhukattai or modagam like shape.

For the filling:
Add the jaggery and sprinkle some water on it. Heat it till the jaggery dissolves. Do not boil.
Add shredded coconut and cardamom to the jaggery and mix well.
The mixture should neither be too watery nor too hard.
Use this mixture to fill the kozhukattais.

Steam these kozhukattais for about 12 min and serve steaming hot!
