Sweet kolukattai

  • Channa Dhal - cooked for 3 whistles - 1/2 cup
  • Grated coconut - dry roasted - 1/4 cup
  • Well mashed jaggery - 1/2 cup
  • cardamom pdr - 1 tsp
  • Rice flour - 1.5 cups approximately

Grind the cooked channa dhal in mixie without adding any water. In a pan, add the well mashed jaggery + very lil water and allow it to boil. When the jaggery starts to boil (make sure there is no lumps in the jaggery) + add ground cooked channa dhal and roasted grated coconut(we roast it to remove the water from the coconut). Also add some cardamom pdr. Stir it till it becomes thick and loses all the water in it.
    This is called the pooranam which is going to be used as a stuffing inside our sweet kolukattai. Next, coming to the kolukattai preparation....Boil some water(about 2 cups) in a wide pan. To this add rice flour slowly, stirring will you add it. At a certain point, you will notice that the rice flour starts to get thick. This is where you stop adding rice flour. Add some oil (1 tbsp) to this now and keep stirring this mixture for another couple of minutes. Stir it until it becomes like a thick dough and you should be able to make round balls out of it.

    Take a plastic sheet and spray some oil on it. Then make round balls from the dough and spread them as a circle on the plastic sheet. Fill it with already prepared "pooranam" and fold it to a semi circle in the form of a kolukattai.

    Yummy, all time fav, sweet kolukattai are ready !!!
