I have never tried kozhukattai with channa dal | kadalai paruppu poornam. My mom is here for a week and few days back i learnt the kadalai parrupu poli recipe from her (recipe coming soon) . Recipe for poli I wanted to make kozhukattai with the same stuffing. so today being the first friday of the Tamil month Aadi i thought i will make Kozhukattai with kadalai paruppu poornam and made it and did neivedhyam too. And above all, Mom told that i have made perfect Modakams. Here is the recipe for kozhukattai with kadalai paruppu poornam. TO MAKE 23 MODAKAMS:

METHOD TO MAKE POORNAM:

  • Dry roast the channa dal for 5 minutes. Take care not to get it burnt.
  • Soak it in water for 1/2 an hour.
  • Pressure cook till 2-3 whistles. Completely drain the water.
  • Let this cool. Once cool, grind this in mixer along with coconut and cardamom powder.
  • Grind this smoothly. Add jaggery in the last and pulse once or twice.
  • Poornam is done. If you feel the mixture is bit watery, don’t worry. Add ghee in a pan and saute for 5 minutes in a low flame. The poornam will come to the right consistency.
  • When it is cool, divide it into equal parts.

METHOD FOR MAKING OUTER DOUGH

  1. The outer dough for perfectly for 23 modakams. The poornam was left for 6 modakams. We had it as it is.
  2. always cover the dough with moist cloth, else the kozhukattis will get cracked after steaming.
