Ammini Kozhukatta - Ganesh Chathurthi Special

Every year i make it a point to celebrate every festival possible, but  those just don't show up on my little space in here. Back at home amma makes special " Unniappam" - small fried rice cakes ; for Ganesh Chathurthi, and away from home staying i here try my best to put things together and make in pure traditional , the same way amma makes at home.

Usually mani kozhuttas are made using the left over dough used to making Sweet kozhukattas, and more. This years Ganesh Chathurthi  pooja was done with Spiced White Channa Dal, Ammini Kozhukatta and Sweet Kozhukattas or Stuffed Sweet Rice Dumplings My little one really loves this small small  rounds.

Ammini Kozhukatta - Ganesh Chathurthi Special

3/4 cup Roasted Rice Flour
1/2 tsp Salt

For Tempering:
3 tbsp Grated Coconut
1 pinch Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2-3 Dry Red Chillies
Curry leaves

Mix together Rice flour and salt. Boil water ( keep the water on stove top on flame) and add it to the flour to make it a soft dough.
Divide into small small rounds and steam it in a idli cooker or a steam vessel.
Heat oil in a kadai, adding mustard seeds, red chilli, curry leaves, turmeric powder and grated coconut saute.
Add in the steamed Kozhukatta's ,add salt as needed and mix well.
