Kozhukattai recipes, list of kozhukattai recipes

Collection of kozhukattai recipes from Rakskitchen in one place for easy access. Click on the link below or pictures given below to learn respective kozhukattai preparation.
I always use store bought idiyappam flour for preparing kozhukattai. It turns out to be an easy method as well as the kozhukattais turn out soft, stays soft even after cooling down. The dough is easy for shaping the kozhukattai, never breaks while shaping or after cooking.
If you want, you can use any readymade rice flour bought from stores, make sure its good quality, fresh in stock and mainly fine flour, not coarse.

Manathakkali keerai kootu recipe

Manathakkali-keerai-kootu-recipe
Manathakali keerai kootu recipe, Manathakkali keerai is commonly known as Black nightshade and it is best home remedy for mouth ulcer. Simple kootu recipe to go well with rice as accompaniment in south Indian lunch.


My mom and MIL always make thanni saaru with manathakali keerai mostly. But we can make kootu and sambar too. I have not made anything except thanni saru as I rarely get this keerai. I have posted thanni saru earlier. This is the first time I am making kootu. Last week when we went to Mustafa, I went to the near by shop Aboorvas (next to HSB) and was so happy to see this manathakkali keerai there. It was just kept as such in the box in bulk, but I told the person in the shop if I could get some, before which it was taken away for sorting. He was kind enough to go and get some. I asked while I was billing if there will be stock always, he said yes, mostly in weekends, as fresh stock comes from Cameroon Islands.

Kara seedai recipe, seedai with store bought rice flour

Kara seedai recipe
Kara seedai or spicy seedai with store bought rice flour. If you don’t have much time to spend to prepare fresh rice flour the traditional way, you can adapt this way.
The first time when I felt like having seedai some 10 years back, I thought I could make my own and my first attempt was a disaster. I made with readymade rice flour and I thought that was the reason for bursting. Later stuck to the traditional way of making seedai with fresh homemade rice flour.


This year, I wanted to try some other version of seedai and kept this spicy seedai and wheat flour seedai in my list. I dropped wheat flour seedai and thought will post this. I made yesterday and again, the seedais went popcorn. I was prepared for it, so thankfully no spilling over. But felt really bad that my day went for waste. I thought I will try again with fresh homemade rice flour today.
But for the last time, I gave it a try after adapting the method from here, only this time followed the same way that I treat the homemade rice flour. And it worked, it never burst and turned out great! What I did that yesterday I didn’t ? Last time, I never roasted the flours, sieved the flours, skipped coconut too. And looks like roasting and sieving really matters. Check our my notes section for more tips.

Sattu sharbat recipe, satttu sharbat salt

Sattu-sharbat
Sattu sharbat is a healthy protein drink made with roasted chickpea flour. It can be made both sweet and spicy version, in this post lets learn hot to make sattu sharbat with salt and other spices.
I keep looking at this sattu flour that is sold in popular brand. I kept thinking it is the sathu mavu, they have named it so. This time when I went for monthly groceries, I took a pack, even then I didn’t care about giving a read about the ingredients. I thought it would help in hurry mornings to make porridge/ kanji.


Next day I made kanji too, just like making other kanjis like ragi kanji/ kambu kanji. It tasted and smelt so weird. Then I checked it what it was and realised it is roasted chickpea flour. So it was more like besan or pottu kadalai kanji.
sattu-sharbat
Then I googled and found it is roasted chickpea flour. What is the difference between sattu and besan?  Besan is chana dal flour where as sattu is roasted chana flour is what I understood.
I found this recipe just in the back of the pack and made it and it turned out really good. We are adding raw onions, kala namak (black salt), bhuna jeera (roasted & powdered cumin seeds), lemon juice and coriander leaves. Just like we add for chaat items. So could the recipe go wrong? I enjoyed a lot.
Of course it has lots of health benefits like cooling effect on body, healthy protein source and makes a filling drink. So easy and quick ot make too.

Eggless blooming onion recipe


Eggless blooming onion recipe, an easy batter with simple ingredients available at home, without egg. A fancy snack that not only looks pretty, also it turns out delicious.
Blooming onion snack is known to me only in recent few years. But the technique of cutting onion like a lotus is not new to me. When I saw blooming onion videos, I have thought, I knew this way of cutting onion and thought only will be used as decoration while presenting a dish.


I have also done this in my corn kebab  pictures. But making a snack out of it, is new to me. All the recipes are with egg based batter. I tried making it eggless and turned out really yummy. Batter coated onion, deep fried cannot go wrong! You can take it as fancy version of our onion bajji.
I made this eggless blooming onion recipe for Aval kitchen 3rd Anniversary special edition.
