First crush palm jaggery, I used my hand mortar and pestle. Measure and transfer crushed palm jaggery to a pan.
Add water till immersing level. Crush it well using a potato masher.
Heat it up and cook for few mins until the jaggery melts completely. Strain to remove impurities. Cool down for later use.
Wash the palm leaves,cut the center protion about 4 to 5 inches long and set aside.Dry roast green gram dal till slightly browned. Cool down for few mins.
Transfer to a mixer and grind to a coarse mixture.Now in a bowl add rice flour,green gram mixture,grated coconut and cardamom powder.
Mix it well, I transferrred it to a wider bowl.Then add palm jaggery syrup little by little.
Keep mixing and the syrup fully, mix well.If it is still dry, sprinkle little water to form a dough like this, not too dry and not too goey.
Gather it together to form a dough.Open the palm leaf,grease it with oil,now stuff it with the dough lengthwise.
Tie it with a thread, I used palm leaf threads itself.Finish all the dough like this.Now arrange it in a steamer pot, I used my idli steamer.
As a final step steam it for atleast 15-20mins.Open and carefully remove the kozhukattais from the palm leaf.
Serve Pani Olai Kozhukattai hot!
