KOZHUKATTAI


Kozhukkatai are nothing but the sweet dumplings made of rice flour with a jaggery coconut stuffing inside. Its is also meant as 'MODAK' . But some of konkani ppl specially we make it with wheat flour with a addition of banana ,coconut and jaggery which is entirly different from the current recipe. You could find the ingredients amd method here.

People make this during the festival of ganesh chaturthi as he is very fond of modaks / kozhukattai. It is very delicate and tender. I too tried this time referring one of talented blogger ''SUKANYA RAMKUMAR'' I really admire her clicks which are very neat with awesome presentation. Thanks for this recipe dear. Also to mention I loved ur kozhukottai moulds so much. Next time will try buying that and make it :)

The one which we have made is without using moulds. I must thank my hubby 'RAJESH' for turning out kozhukattai into a perfect cute shapes. I used fork for making designs on it which is slightly seen I guess hehehe :)

CHANGES I MADE :

I tryed adding kishmish, cashews, and badams into the coconut jaggery stuffing which came out soo delicious and yummy in taste.


Enjoy!!
