Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Makes : 10 to 12 kozhukattai


Raw Rice / Pacharisi - 1 cup
Moong Dal / Pasi Paruppu - 1/4 cup
Jaggery - 3/4 cup
Water - 2 1/2 cup
Coconut -1/4 cup grated
Cardamom Powder / Yelakai Podi - 1 tsp

Roast raw rice and moong dal for few mins. Take in a bowl and wash well. Drain it completely. Take it in a blender and powder coarsely

Take jaggery in a kadai, add in water and mix well. If your jaggery has dirt, strain the mix. I didn't strain since my jaggery is clean. Bring it to a boil.

Add in coconut and cardamom powder.

Add in powdered rice and dal mix in and mix well.

It will get thick and leaves the side and come together as a mass. Add ghee to this and mix well.

Let the mix cool down. Now shape it into ball. 

Steam this for 10 mins.
