pooranam kolukatai

Pooranam kozhukatai is stuffed sweet kozhukatai with grated coconut and sugar as filling.One of my favorite kozhukatai and also a must for Vinayagar Chathurthi every year.
Unlike ,Pidi kozhukatais these Pooranam kozhukatais takes time in shaping them.A very simple filling that doesn’t require any cooking as well.
Make sure you make a thin outer covering with the dough with good amount of the filling inside to enjoy the sweetness in every bite.

PREPARATION TIME : 20 MINS

COOKING TIME : 12-15 MINS

YIELDS : 23-25

INGREDIENTS

1 cup HOMEMADE IDIYAPPAM FLOUR

TAKE CARE TIPS

Use a mould to shape the kozhukatais if you are a beginner .

Use homemade flour for good results.Store bought idiyappam flours has little amount of cornflour that makes the kozhukatais rubbery after steaming.

Kozhukatai made from homemade flour remains softer always.

  1. Swapna,
    Great recipe. what is also interesting to me is how different states have similar sweets- it is very much like modak made for Ganesh Chaturthi.
    Do you use boiled rice for making this flour?
