Ulundu Kozhukattai Recipe - Uppu Kozhukattai | Ganesh Chaturthi Recipes

Ulundu Kozhukattai Recipe
Its  ulundu kozhukattai recipe for vinayagar charthurthi special this week. I am excited about the long weekend coming up have so much plans right from cooking, relaxing, spending time with family and shopping so am very much looking forward for it. You can check the modak(pooranam kozhukattai) sweet version kozhukattai here (have updated with stepwise) which I posted last year so I'm posting savoury kozhukattaiai this year.
Ulundu Kozhukattai Recipe
The stuffing is simple and flavourful that it can get over in a jiffy by itself :) I always make the stuffing ready after that making kozhukattai outer dough is just a breeze.Savoury modaks are ready to be served. Tastes best when served hot or warm. We make both sweet and savoury kozhukattai and I luv both :)

  6. Press the ends and seal it completely and make the design by pressing ur thumb. You can also make designs with fork or use readymade shapes.Steam the kozhukattais for about 10-12mins or until the outer cover turns shiny which shows the kozhukattais are done.

The stuffing can be anything sweet too like coconut channa dhal stuffing or sesame jaggery, it tastes good too. Uppu Kozhukattai

My Notes:

  • There are few other ways to make savoury kozhukattai too even without filling. Just make the kozhukattai balls, steam it then temper it with the above said items which is called ammini kozhukattai.
  • Be very careful to run the mixie just once or twise else the urad dhal will get pastey.
  • You can either use homemade rice flour or riceflour that we get in shops, the fine variety thay call it as idiyappam flour.
