     While everybody is doing modhak(poorna kozhukkattai ) for Ganesha chathurthi.I made this different style of kolakattai  for our plumpy elephant headed lord.What makes this kozhukattai so special ? Its made in traditional way not using rice flour.
      Traditionally kozhukkattai's are prepared by grinding the rice to batter then it is made to a dough by cooking in the pan.It makes the final outcome so soft,fresh and also very pure without any preservatives.I also like using rice flour when i am really in a hurry or not in the mood to do grinding.Its easy to make dumpling with rice flour but  doing ground batter method will bring back the memories of our olden /golden times,isn't it ?

    You can make this kolukattai as an evening snack or for a get together.You can use raw rice if you don't have idli rice.kolukattai made with sona masoori /raw rice is little hard after it cools down.But this one remains soft if you cover them properly .Mom asked me to add coconut pieces ,but i added grated coconut when i did the previous time.
      Sugar adds a mild sweetness while the salt adds deliciousness the kozhukattai needs.Soaking and grinding is the only things you need to do a bit extra than using the rice flour,but there won't be any cracks and it remains soft even after long time. If you plan ahead, you can make them in a jiffy.
