I love Kozhukattai and I have a variety of Kozhukattai Recipes in my Blog. This one is a easy to make Kozhukattai , if you have ready made Processed Rice Flour.

Processed Rice Flour - 1 Cup
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 Teaspoon
Dry Red Chillies - 4 or 5.
Broken Gram Dal - 1/2 teaspoon
Broken Urad Dal - 1/2 teaspoon
Hing or Asafoetida - A generous Pinch
Water - 2.5 Cups
Coconut - 1/4 Cup (Grated, Optional)
Oil - 1 teaspoon (Preferably Coconut Oil)


  • Take a Kadhai/Large Vessel and heat a teaspoon of oil and once the Oil is hot add the Mustard seeds and allow them to splutter.
  • Then add the gram Dal, Urad Dal and Dry Red Chillies and saute. 
  • Add Hing/asafoetida, to this and add the water and Salt to taste. 
  • Allow the water to boil and then add the Processed Rice Flour while stirring it.
  • Also add the grated Coconut to this. 
  • Cover and cook for 5 minutes or till all the water is absorbed.
  • Now switch off the flame and keep the prepared dish aside.
  • Now take a Steamer or Idly pot and add water to the steamer and allow it to Boil.
  • Meanwhile, Grease the Idly plates/plates in which you are planning to steam the Kozhukattais.
  • By now, the prepared mixture would have come to bearable heat.
  • Now wet your hands and take a good amount of the prepared mixture and shape into a ball or any desired shape.
  • Arrange the prepared balls in the greased plates.
  • Now place this in the steamer and steam for 10 -12 minutes.
  • Allow it to cool for 5 minutes and serve.
  • Start making them into balls only when it the prepared mixture is of bearable heat to your hands or else allow it to cool for some more time.
  • Adding Coconut is optional, however it takes this recipe up by few notches.
  • While adding the Mustard seeds, Dal and Hing keep the stove on low flame.
  • Using coconut Oil brings a nice flavour to this recipe.
  • You can grease your hand with coconut Oil while shaping these Kozhukattais.
