Mini Kozhakattai

Leave a comment

I stumbled upon this recipe for the first time in Jaya TV’s Arusuvai Ithu Thani suvvai program by Revathi Shanmugam. Since, then I have been trying to watch her program every Monday. She comes across as a very simple person and I like the way she narrates. She is one of the daughters of Kaviarasu Kannadasan. Okay, now to the recipe.



  • 1 cup – rice flour
  • 1.5 cup – water

For Tempering

  • 1/2 tsp – mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp  – broken urad dal
  • pinch – Asafoetida
  • 4 – red chillies
  • few – curry leaves

Method :

Bring water to boil and slowly add rice flour. This step needs constant stirring, to prevent lumping. Cook this mixture until the water is all absorbed. Make small balls from the warm mixture and steam them Idli plates.

For seasoning, heat up oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, add urad dal and when the urad dal turns brown, add Asafoetida and red chilies. Lastly add grated coconut and stir it until the moisture from the coconut is gone. Add the steamed kozhakattai and leave it in low flame for 10 mins.
