This has become one of my favorite kozhukattai, it was so soft in texture and i loved the taste of that too. I am a big fan of steamed dumplings, i have quite a few recipe here in my blog too. You can check out all of them here.
This recipe was on my mind ever since i made rice flour at home, That is because i got some rava like rice while i sieved the rice flour. I transfered that in a air tight container and store it in fridge to make kozhukattai with it. And couple of days back i made it too. It was delicious..
