AMMINI KOZHUKATTAI RECIPE | GANESHA CHATURTHI RECIPES

Ammini Kozhukattai , we make usually make from the left over dough(outer layer) while making Modakam for Vinyagar Chaturthi.  This ammini kozhukattai itself makes a tiffin or snack and it is a quite a healthy and addictive snack too. Though there are different version of making this ammini kozhukattai I am sharing the one which my mom usually makes at home. Check out the notes to see the different ways of making ammini kozhukattai.

METHOD:

  • Boil the water by adding salt and sesame oil to it.
  • Keep the rice flour|idiyappam flour in a wide bowl.
  • When the water comes to a rolling boil,slowly add the water to the flour.
  • Normally for idiyappam flour it will take 1 and 1/4 cup of water for 1 cup of flour. But for store bought rice flour it will be little less.
  • Just mix with a spoon while adding water.

  • This should be of a smooth dough consistency.
  • When it is warm knead it with your hands and add a tsp of sesame oil if you want.

  • Cover with a moist cloth to avoid dryness.
  • Grease your hands with oil and make a small size balls out of the rice flour dough.( I am not good in making even sized balls)

Note:

  • Do not over steam this kozhukattais as it will turn hard and chewy.
  • Instead of Idli Milagai Podi you can add redchilli powder while kneading the dough and make balls. the rest of the procedure is same.
  • Alternatively while tempering mustard seeds chopped green chilies or red chilies can be added to give spicyness to the ammini kozhukattais.

  17. Ammini kozhukattais are always cute. Nice idea of adding idly powder with this. Though we add idly powder while making morkkali, never thought of adding it to ammini kozhukattai. looks good.
