  • 2 cups Rice
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as needed for making puree
  • 1 cup Coconut
  • For Tempering:
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds / kaduku
  • 1 tbsp Channa dal / Kadala Paruppu
  • 1 tbsp Urad dal / Ulundu
  • 5 cut into small pieces Dry red Chilli
  • 1 spring Curry leaves


  • Wash rice well and let it soak for 2 hours. Drain it and add to a blender.
  • Add salt to it and make into a puree by adding some water.
  • Now heat oil in a kadai. Add all the ingredients given in the tempering list in the given order and let them sizzle for a min.
  • Add the ground rice mixture and mix well. Keep mixing till everything comes together and form into a soft dough.
  • Take it off the heat and add coconut in it. Mix well till it forms a smooth dough.
  • Divide into equal portions and shape into round balls.
  • Place them in a steamer basket and steam them in a idli cooker or if you are like me, I used my electric rice cooker for about 15-20 mins till the kolukkatai is done.
  • The kolukkatai must have turned shiny and glossy of they are done. Or cut a ball you will not find any doughyness inside those kolukattai.
  • Serve hot with chutney or idli podi.
