I have already posted plain ammini kozhukattai so this year wanted to a try a spicy ammini kozhukattai recipe.It turned out to be very spicy and flavourful.I always love any sweet kozhukattai and hubby is just opposite so it was a treat for him when I made these.These were very soft with a spicy flavourful masala coated, easy to make for Ganesh Chaturthi too.

My Notes:

  • Make sure to steam it for the exact timing else the kozhukattais will become hard.When thekozhukattais turns shiny and nonsticky, you can check the doneness.
  • Make small small balls.
  • I used store bought rice flour, brand name is Nirapara.
