These are some of HIS names!!!!

He loves  Kozhukkattais, Modhakaas.....
But it's quite a laborious process. malpatskitchen brings a very easy method , a quick method, easy for a beginner who has not ever done kozhukkattai maavu..... here it is!!!!


1 measure Kozhukkattai or very fine rice flour (You can use a cup, a big ladle, a tumbler or a bowl)
1 1/2 measure water
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cooking or gingely oil
1 tsp milk

Cooking time: 7 - 8 minutes; Prep time: 5 - 7 mts

I used this brand flour, any brand is fine. Or like Double horse rice flour, which is extremely fine like butter 

Take one measure flour. Use a non stick pan only

add 1 1/2 measure water

add salt

add gingely/cooking oil

add 1 tsp milk

Mix everything well into a lump - free mixture

Start cooking on a medium flame

It will slowly start thickening

and will leave the sides and form a thick ball

flames on the lowest, keep it covered for 2 - 3 minutes

This is the best way to check...wet your fingers, touch and see...the batter should not stick

Cover with a wet towel

Cover with a lid, allow to rest for 15 - 20 minutes

Knead to a soft dough, dipping your fingers in a drop of oil 

See...soft choppus have been made, kept on a greased steamer plate. While shaping a choppu, use oil or rice flour to dab your fingers on and off

Isn't it perfect???

You can make my special Salem style Dhal pockets

Our Tanjore style Urad dhal kozhukkattais

Hope this post turns out to be really useful to you all!!!
