Boiled rice/Idli rice - 1/2cup
Moong dal-1/4cup [I have used split moong dal with skin]
Jaggery- 1/4 cup [adjust]
Wash and soak the rice for 2-3 hours.
Grind the rice with one tablespoon of coconut and little water to a coarse batter.
Heat oil in a wide pan, (keep the flame very low) and add the rice batter to the pan and mix.
After a few minutes the batter will come together, without sticking to the pan. Take it out, cover it and let it cool.
Melt the jaggery with little water, drain for any impurities.
Then add the cooked dal and coconut to the jaggery.
Cook till the stuffing becomes little thick, add the elaichi powder and put off the stove.
Apply little oil/ghee on your hands, and knead the rice dough in a smooth dough, make small balls out of it.
Flatten each ball, keep a teaspoon of stuffing in the center and make the desire shape.
Steam the kozhukkattai's in a steamer for 7 to 8 minutes.
