Raw Rice 1 cup
Freshly Grated Coconut 2 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Channa Dal - 2 to 3 tbsp
Curry leaves few
Red Chilies 2 torn
Asafoetida 1 tsp
Water around 2 cups
Heat oil in a pan. Once heated add mustard seeds. Once it crackles add torn red chilies, channa dal, asafoetida and curry leaves and saute for a minute.
Add the grated coconut and again saute for a minute.
Now add around 11/2 cups of water, salt and let it boil. Once water boils, add the ground rice slowly stirring continuously, so that no lumps are formed.
Once the rice is cooked, the mixture will thicken. Switch off the flame. Transfer the mixture to a plate and allow it to cool little.
When the mixture is still warm, grease hands lightly with oil, take a small portion of the mixture in hand and roll them into a oval shape kozhukattai. Make all Kozhukattais from the remaining mixture the same way.
Now ready the steamer. Arrange the kozhukattais in them and steam it for around 10 minutes and switch off flame.
Once cooled transfer the kozhukattais into serving plate. Offer to God and serve the prasad to family and friends.
