             My mother used to make this kozhukattai on the day of her monthly fasting on "Sankadahara sathurthi". This will be tasting like how we make on Ganesh sathurthi,but this is much simpler than that one!

Rice flour 1 cup
Urad dhal 1/2 cup
water 2 cup
Green chillies 4 nos.
Asafetida 2 pinches
Coconut 2 tblsp
Salt As needed


Mustard 1 tsp
Asafetida 2 pinches
Curry leaves 1 sprig
  • Soak urad dhal for an hour and grind green chillies ,coconut first and then add asafetida and urad dal to it. Use inch/juice button in the mixer to grind to a coarse paste.

  • Stir till you get a dough consistency,by this time the rice flour should have got cooked.
  • The dough will not be so sticky after it cools down.
  • Grease the idly plate and your hands with oil and make round patties ( kozhukattais ), arrange them and steam cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • Your tasty,healthy kozhukattai is ready! We enjoyed with coconut thogaiyal and sambhar!
