Kolukattai / Kozhukkattai, a special sweet for Ganesh Chaturti (Vinayakar Chaturthi / Pillaiyar Chaturthi)

  • Roast lightly 2 cups of rice flour in a skillet.
  • Allow it to cool by spreading on a tray.
  • Add 1 cup of jaggery which is shredded, ¼ cup of finely sliced coconut and 1 tsp of salt.
  • Mix together with required quantity of water so as to be well-kneaded and firm.
  • Make lemon sized balls.
  • By gripping each ball within palm, knuckle shaped kolukkattais can be made easily.
  • Arrange the kolukattais in idli cooker so that they don't contact each other.
  • Steam cook until light brown in color.
  • This is similar to modhakam or modhak.
  • Serve hot or cold.
