Ammini Kozhukattas / Seasoned Tiny Rice Flour Kozhukattas / Tiny Rice Flour Dumplings / Kozhukattai.
I hope my Indian friends are not hearing about this recipe for the first time. When I was searching for something different to be made for the breakfast, this usual dish of my mom got stuck in my mind. I used to see my mom making it for breakfast. When we were small kids we used to pester mom for making something for evening snacks. My mom makes its bigger version Kozhukattas too with jiggery and coconut filling for breakfast and sometimes as an evening snack. It is not a new recipe for me since from my childhood Seeing those small lemon sized shining Kozhukattas in plates made us hungrier and we used to finish off the whole stock. As kids we loved it.
Now coming to this recipe, it is so soft Kozhukattas and its stays so soft for a long time. The very easy thing about this breakfast dish is that it doesn’t need any side dish and so we can make it so fast on busy days too. But still you can serve it with some grated jiggery, spicy pickles or some idli podi. It will be mouth watering. It tastes great with some spicy pickles and I love to have it with pickles..
Ingredients for Tiny Rice Dumplings:
1. Rice Powder (roasted) – 2 cups
2. Coconut grated – 1 ½ cup
3. Sugar powder – ½ to ¾ cups
4. Cumin seeds – ¼ tsp.
5. Cardamom Powder – ¼ tsp.
6. Salt – a pinch
7. Boiled Water – 1 ½ cups
How to Make Undrallu:
Boil the required water and keep it aside.
Take a big bowl and add all the dry ingredients and mix it well. Now add Coconut and mix it well. Slowly add the boiled water and mix well with a spatula. Knead well to get a smooth and soft dough. Make small lemon size balls with this dough using your palm. Place these tiny kozhukattas in a steamer. Cover with its lid and cook for 10 minutes on a medium flame.
Your soft tiny kozhukattas are ready. Serve it hot.
My Recipe Notes on Tiny Kozhukattas:
1. You can use Rice Powder or wheat flour for this. If you are using wheat flour, be careful of the quantity of water to mix the flour since it needs less water compared to the rice flour.
2. Adding boiled water make the dough softer.
3. You can add ½ cup hot milk; in that case reduce the quantity of water. Adding milk will make the rice balls softer and extra tasty.
4. You can mix cashews or any dry fruits to make it more healthy and flavorful.
5. Mine was a bit over roasted Rice flour. So it’s not that white color flour.
Happy Cooking.. Cheers.. Seena.
