Pazha Kozhukattai| Fresh Fruit Kozhukattai Recipe | Ganesh Chaturthi 2018 | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe

 Fresh Fruit Kozhukattai Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations are incomplete without making Kozhukattai or  Modak . This year, I wanted to share some new varieties of modak with all of you. I had shared the Udiri Kozhukattai recipe yesterday. I am sure you have book marked the recipe to try it on the auspicious day of Vinayaka Chaturthi. 

The filling needs no cooking.  Mix fruits, along with palm sugar, cardamom and fresh coconut and your filling is ready. It hardly takes 20 minutes to make this recipe. So fresh and healthy. Very less sugar is needed to make the filling as the sweetness comes naturally from  fruits.  I added just one to two teaspoons of sugar for sweetness. You can use palm sugar which is again natural source of sugar. 

The modak dough can be made by soaking rice and grinding batter ( refer here) or can be made using readymade rice flour. This is a very healthy, gluten free and vegan snack  and can be packed for school lunch box too. I have created this recipe with loads of loveđź’–.
