Ammini Kozhukattai - Mani Kozhukattai Recipe

Ammini Kozhukattai Recipe
Ammini Kozhukattai (Mini or Mani kozhukattai) - I have no clue of the orgin of the name but they are easy to make and gets emptied in no time.I am sure most days when we make poornam kozhukattais we have leftover outer dough so we can make these mini kozhukattias in no time.These are mini versions of the uppu kozhukattai we make.

  7. These kozhukattais are easy to make and they are very flavourful.This is best suited for the festive occassion as it can be done in a jiffy when there is leftover outer dough.

My Notes:

  • Add boiling water little by little to get the desired dough consistency. The dough should gather to well but still it will be sticky when touched with ur hands.
  • Just grease your hands with little oil if you feel sticky while rolling.
