Ammini kozhukkattai with paruppu usili

Ammini kozhukkatai is usually made out of the left over dough of the kozhukkatai during Vinayagar chathurthi. It is simple, easy and healthy snack. Every kid likes this recipe because of its tiny and cute appearance. It can be made in different ways. I am going to make ammini kozhukkattai with paruppu usili. Paruppu usili is a traditional south Indian recipe. It can be mixed with koththavarangai, vazhaipoo, beans instead of ground cococnut.

  • Once the water starts to boil, add the rice flour to the center of the vessel.
  • Insert a laddle and cover it with a lid.
  • Cook it in low flame for ten minutes. Donot stir or mix.
  • After ten minutes, open the lid and stir it with the ladle without forming lumps.
  • Keep it aside for five to ten minutes.
  • Then add 1 tbsp of oil and knead it with the hand when the dough is still warm.

  • Add coconut oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds.
  • Now crumble and add the steam cooked paruppu usili and saute for two minutes.

  • Add ammini kozhukkattai and mix well.

Note:  You can serve ammini kozhukkattai without mixing with usili. Simply splutter mustard seeds, curry leaves and serve.

Else you can also mix grated coconut with it.

You can mix idli podi with ammini kozhukkattai to make podi kozhukkattai.

If you are going to use the same doughfor making sweet kozhukkattai, add only a pinch of salt. You can add the salt in paruppu usili or while spluttering with mustard seeds.
