Ammini Kozhukattai/Steamed Rice Dumplings


Ammini Kozhukattai's or Mini(mani)Kozhukattai's are usually made of leftover outer dough of the Kozhukattais we make during festivals.This is the  tastiest of the kozhukattais (according to me)so I would be waiting for my grandmom and aunts finish making the other kozhukattais.so if there is any leftover I would get to taste this.
I made this today with rice flour just to snack.There are lots of recipes for this and my version is as follows.
It is a very healthy snack for kids and old people because it is steamed.








You will Need

  • One cup of Rice flour
  • Two cups of water
  • One tsp of Gingelly oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Half a tsp Chilli powder

To Season

  • One tbs Gingelly Oil
  • One tsp Mustard seeds
  • One tsp Urad dal
  • Few Red chillies
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • One tbs Scraped Coconut
  • A generous pinch of Asafoetida

How To
1.Seive the rice flour.
2.Boil water with salt and gingelly oil.Add the seived flour slowly and keep stirring.

3.Switch off the stove and stir the flour until thick mass with a wooden laddle.
4.Add chilli powder and mix well and keep it closed to cool for ten minutes.
5.Apply oil in your palm take a small portion of the dough and make a small round.
6.Repeat for the rest of the flour.
7.Place all of them in a steamer and steam for 12 minutes.(oversteaming will make them rubbery)
8.Heat oil in a pan crackle mustard seeds and add rest of the things given under column "season" except the coconut and saute for a minute.
9.Sprinkle coconut and it is ready.serve warm.

Hi,

I lovee Ammini kozhukkattai... and i tried making it as per your recipe instructions today... it tastes okay but it got too mushy after i steamed it in the cooker... so much so that it didnt even stay as balls by the time i took it out to porichukottify it.

What might have gone wrong? Could you please suggest so that I can get it right the next time round? Thanks...

hi Aparna thank you for your feed back.May be the quantity of water you used could be more or it might not become solid enough when you cook it.These are the only things i can think of.Let me know!

Aparna said...

I think so too.. I'll try making it again some other day with less amount of water - lets see how it works out then...tasted amazing, my husband couldnt get enough of it!! hehe...

Thanks and great blog btw! :)
