Ammini ( Mani ) Kozhukattai:    Like us on Youtube for more Video Recipes
Hello dear friends, hope you all are busy with all preparations n pooja arrangements for tomorrow’s Ganesh Chaturthi festival.
Here I am sharing with you today a very tasty and healthy savory version of kozhukattai. This is usually prepared with the left over dough, while making Modaks ( Modhagam ) for Vinayagar Chaturthi. These savory one’s takes merely minutes to prepare. 
Here goes the easy and speciality recipe of  Ammini  Kozhukattai. 
·         Rice flour                 - 1 cup
·         Gingely oil                - 1 tsp
·         Oil    to temper          - 1 tsp
·         Cumin seeds             - ½ tsp
·         Mustard seeds           - ¼ tsp
·         Split urad dal             - ½ tsp
·         Red chilly                 - 1
·         Hing                         - ¼ tsp
·         Turmeric pwd             - a pinch
·         Fresh coconut shreds    - 2 tbsp
·         Salt to taste
1.     Sieve the rice flour and keep it aside
2.     Add a pinch of salt and 1 tsp of gingely oil to 1 cup of water.
3.     Heat it to boiling.
4.     Take the rice flour in a mixing bowl.
5.     Add the  boiling water little by little by mixing continuously with a ladle.
6.     Stop adding water, once the dough reaches smooth and soft consistency.
7.     Keep it covered to cool for 5 mins.
8.     Grease your hands with oil and knead once again to smooth dough. ( the dough should be slightly sticky and not dry )
9.     Make small sized balls.
10.  Repeat for the rest of the dough.
11.  Place all of them in a greased idly plate.
12.  Steam cook for 7 to 10 mins or until the layer turns shiny. ( overcooking will make them rubbery )
13.  Heat oil in a pan.
14.  Crackle mustard, cumin, split urad dal, hing and red chilly.
15.  Add turmeric pwd, salt ( add very little salt, as the cooked rice balls have already salt in it ) and fresh coconut shreds.
16.  Mix well.
17.  Add cooked rice floor balls.
18.  Saute in medium flame for 4 to 5 mins.
19.  Turn off flame and sprinkle freshly chopped coriander leaves.
20.  Flavorful Mani / Ammini Kozhukattais are ready.
21.  Serve warm and enjoy.
