Kara Kozhukattai(with brown rice)

By May 22, 2015

Kra kozhukattai is very simple and easy to make. This is usually made on Vinayaka Chadhurthi festival time,but everyone at my house love it so I make it whenever we feel like eating. Best during rainy or cold days. Its usually made with regular rice flour but I wanted to do it with brown rice so made it with that. Red rice is also very healthy and kozhukattai taste very good in that rice too. So why not try in all rice variety. We can make sweet kozhukattai too with all variety of rice. I love the jaggery flavor in it. It takes only 10 mins to make it. Only work is soaking the rice in advance.

  • Prep Time : 10 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10 minutes
  • Yield : 25 kozhukattai



1. Soak brown rice for 2 hrs in a bowl. Usually white rice is added but I like kozhukattai in brown or red rice.

2. Now grind rice and coconut together. Add oil in hot pan and do the seasoning mentioned above. Then add the ground coconut and rice mix together and keep stirring in low flame for few mins,till the mix becomes non-sticky like dough in texture.

3. Dry fry moong dal and keep it separate. This is optional but it gives nice crunchy taste to kozhukattai.

4. Now switch off the flame and let the dough cool off. Shape them inside your hand as shown in pic and steam them in Idly cooker for 10 mins. Now serve it hot and enjoy.
