  • 2.5 cups Salt - ½ tsp Cardamom powder - 1 tsp Coconut - ½ cup, grated (thaw if frozen) Ghee or oil - 2 tbsp Brown sugar - 1 cup (see notes for other options) Water - 1 cup, warm (you will need more or less depending on your flour) How to: Begin by boiling the water needed for your steamer vessel. Grease your steamer plates or line them with cheesecloth and set aside. Heat a large skillet on medium heat and dry-roast the flour for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly. When you can smell a light nutty aroma from the flour, remove from heat and dump the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add salt, cardamom powder. coconut, ghee and brown sugar. Mix well with your fingers to make a crumbly mixture.. Add water, a little at a time, till you can form a soft, smooth dough. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle some more flour till it is smooth. Grease your hands lightly with melted ghee or oil. Pinch off small lemon sized pieces of dough, make a smooth ball, close your fist around this ball of dough. See the gif image above to to see how to make pidi kozhukkatai. You can also form any other shape as you wish with the dough. Place shaped dough balls on greased steamer plate, cover and steam them for 10-12 minutes. Remove and serve hot or warm. Cool leftover kozhukkatai completely and store in an airtight container for a day on the counter-top or for 2 days in the refrigerator. Notes: 1. You can use jaggery instead of brown sugar. Dissolve 1 cup of grated jaggery in 1 cup of water, strain to remove any impurities, and add to the flour to make the dough. You do not need to thicken the syrup, just heat it enough to dissolve jaggery in water. Nowadays, you can also get powdered jaggery or palm sugar which can be used like you would use regular sugar.2. If you do not have multiple steamer plates, divide dough into two balls and keep one ball covered with a kitchen towel. This prevents it from drying out. 3.5.3208
