Cooking Time
45 minutes
Difficulty Level

1 1/4 cup fresh grated coconut

2/5 cup sugar

½ teaspoon cardamom powder

1 cup rice flour

1 tablespoon coconut oil

½ teaspoon salt


Preparation Instructions


In a bowl, mix together the coconut and sugar. Spinkle with cardamom and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oil and salt to create a soft dough.

Use the palms of your hands to roll walnut-sized balls of dough. Stuff these with the coconut mixture. Steam-cook them for about 30 minutes, or until the dough is light and fluffy.



Kozhukkattais are steamed rice balls with sweet coconut stuffing. No South Indian needs introduction to kozhukkattai or an translation for it. The translation is for the unfortunate ones who have not tasted this yummy, delicious and melt in the mouth delicacy, one with very little oil in it.

This popular Indian sweet is one of my favorite snack. Steamed yet tasty after preparation, and there are a lot of variations to choose from. Personally I love jack fruit in it. Try this recipe and I'm sure it will excite your taste buds.
