Wheat Pidi Kozukattais
This is like an almost instant kozukatti recipe, which does not require soaking or grinding, and definitely comes in handy when you are running short of time. I love the texture and taste of these better than the regular ones with rice.
1. Wheat flour, 1-1/2 cup.
2. Jaggery or brown sugar or any other sweetener of choice, 1/2 cup. I have used palm sugar here.
3. Cardamom powder, a pinch.
4. Salt, a pinch.
5. Ghee, a little bit.
6. Chopped coconut pieces or grated coconut, 2 tablespoons.
Dry roast the wheat flour until a good aroma comes from the flour. Heat a pan with 3/4 cup of water. Once the water comes to a boil, add the sugar and dissolve it. Now gently add in the flour and the coconut and keep mixing it until the flour turns to one big lump. Turn off the stove at this stage. Once the mixture is a little easy to handle, rub your hands with a little ghee and make the dough into the desired kozukattai shapes. Then steam the kozukattais for 10-12 minutes. I used an idli cooker for this.
