Ammini Kozhukattai


Ammini Kozhukattai

Ammini Kozhukattai/ Mani Kozhukattai is a savory snack made with rice flour, steamed and finally tempered. This savory pearl mothakas can be served as a quick snack or a brunch. I do not know from where this recipe derived its name but is usually made with left over kozhakattai or idiyappam dough.

This is not the traditional version where tempering is done with a spicy urad dal mixture, which is often used as a filling for uppu kozhakattai. Here I have used chutney powder/idly powder for the spicy seasoning. My mom makes it this way or with just roasted coconut as seasoning.If you have prepared chutney powder in your pantry this snack can be prepared quickly. Try this, you will surely love it.

Ingredients
For the kozhakattai
Rice flour- 2 cups
Water- 1 to 1 1/3 cup
Salt to taste
Sugar- 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 1/2 tsp

For the podi
Urad dal- 2 tsp
Channa dal- 1 tsp
Dry red chilly- 3-4
Asafoetida- a pinch
salt to taste
( if you do not have chutney powder)
For the tempering
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Urad dal- 1/2 tsp
Dry red chilly- 3
Curry leaves- 1 spring
Grated coconut- 3 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp


Bring 1 1/3 cups of water to boil. Add sugar, salt and ghee to it. In a large mixing bowl add the rice flour and pour this hot water little by little and mix with a wooden spoon. Add enough to forms a thick dough. Allow this to cool. Mix with your hands to make a smooth soft dough. Grease your hands with oil and make small balls, the size of cheery or goose berries.You can make approximately 110-120 balls with this dough. Steam this in medium high in an idli maker for about 5-6 minutes.Allow this to cool.

To make the podi dry roast chilly and lentils in low flame.Roast till lentils changes color to light brown. Add asafoetida and allow to cool down and make a fine powder of this and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add urad dal and dry red chilly and fry till it changes color. Next add curry leaves and coconut and saute till the coconut becomes golden brown. Add the kozhukattas and sprinkle the chutney powder. Toss it in the pan till all is well coated. Serve with tea.
Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.
