Ethapazham Kozhukatta




Ethapazham Kozhukatta

Today's recipe is a tasty and guilt free snack.It is kozhakatta with the different filling. It is caramelized ripe plantain and coconut filling.Usually we use plantain to make ada or puttu for breakfast.But this time I used it as a filling for kozhukatta instead of the usual jaggery coconut filling. It had an inviting flavors of ghee, plantain and cardamon.Serve this with a cup of tea as a snack or as breakfast.



Ingredients
Rice flour- 2 cups
Hot boiling water-1 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Sugar- 1 tsp
Coconut oil- 2 tsp

For the filling
Ripe plantain- 2
Coconut 1/2 cup
Sugar- 3 tbs
(or according to sweetness you like)
Cardamon  powder- 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 2  tsp



To make the filling cut plantains into small pieces. Heat ghee in a pan and add chopped plantain and stir fry for about 2-3 minutes or till it becomes soft. Add sugar and mix and allow the sugar to melt and caramelize. Mix in coconut and cardamon powder. Allow the mixture to cool.

Boil water along with salt and sugar ( you will need between 1 and 1/4 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 plantain 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. To check if done wet your fingers with water and gently touch on the kozhakatta. It will be smooth on top and will not stick to your finger.Allow it to cool before serving.

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