Vinayaka chathurthi recipes

  • If your jaggery is not pure grate the jaggery and dissolve in water and strain the jaggery water before cooking or make a syrup and then strain it.
  • If the jaggery is pure add the jaggery and water in a pan and melt to make a syrup. Once the syrup starts to bubble add the rice flour and cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Allow to cook this mixture by constant stirring to avoid lumps. Within minutes the mixture starts to come together and form a mass.
  • Now add the coconut and mix well and switch off the flame and allow the mixture to cool.
  • Slightly cover with a lid (to prevent the mixture get dried up)
  • When the mixture is warm grease your hands slightly and pinch a lemon sized mixture and roll inside your hand and form a cylindrical shaped dumplings and press with fingers to get the impressions.
  • Arrange the dumplings on the idli stand or any steamer plate.
  • Heat water in a idli steamer once it comes to rolling hot keep the stand with kozhukatti and steam for about 10 minutes till the kozhukattai gets a shine on the surface.
