Javvarisi kozhukattai is really easy and delicious kozhukattai with sago (Tapioca pearls/ Sabudana), stuffed with a simple coconut, sugar and cashew nut mixture. This was a recipe shared by one of my classmate friend and I had no idea, how it would look or taste. My friend Roselin shared this as a rough recipe. So I googled to find this video same as what she told. So I confidently tried and it came out perfect! She asked me to try with more smaller sago, but I had only black pepper sized sago with me. She suggested me to run it in mixer once. I did the same, so if you have chance to get smaller sago, no need to pulse the sago, just make it as such. I liked it’s texture and looks a lot. It was soft, wobbly, shiny and transparent with a pearly look. Vj too loved this too. I am sure this can be an wonderful snack too.

  • If using smaller sago, no need to grind it.
  • While grinding, no need to grind for long time to break the sago. Just once if you run, it will be enough to bind it together.

  5. Hi Raks, i tried this today but my sago was sticky after grinding,maybe too much soaked in water?so i added more idiyappam podi flour and make still it was soft!nice recipes, andvery tasty looking!

    1. I have used nylon javvarisi, you would have used the other variety, which usually dissolves in water if soaked. I guess no need to grind for such sago. Just use as such.
