Sweet Kozhukatta/ Steamed Rice Dumplings


Kozhu katta is a tasty and guilt free treat or a snack.I can have it any time of the day even as a breakfast.It is a steamed rice dumpling with a sweet filling. There are different types of stuffing  both sweet and savory  but my favorite is coconut and jaggery combo with the inviting flavors of ghee and cardamon.



Ingredients
Rice flour- 2 cups
Hot boiling water- as needed
Salt to taste
Sugar- 1 tsp
Coconut oil- 2 tsp

For the filling
Coconut- 11/2 cup
Jaggery- 3/4 cup
Cardamon  powder- 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 1  tsp





To make the filling mix one cup of water to and bring  jaggery to a boil.  Strain out the impurities and bring back to stove and boil till it  starts thickening and attains a two tread consistency. Add coconut and mix well. Allow the mixture to simmer till it becomes completely dry and leaves the edges of the pan. Add ghee and cardamon powder and allow this mixture to cool.

Boil water along with salt and sugar ( you will need between 1 and 1/3 cup of water,  adjust accordingly till you attain a dough similar to chapathi dough ). When it comes to a rolling boil add in the coconut oil.
Take the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Gradually mix in the water little by little and mix with a wooden spoon and make a soft dough. When able to handle knead into a smooth dough and make small balls. Take one ball each and flatten into circle on your palm.Place the filling in the center. Carefully bring in the edges together and seal. Smooth  it into a ball.Steam this in a steamer or a pressure cooker with out the weight on for around ten minutes. Allow it to cool before serving.

 Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy...
