Hi Supermoms,

Wishing you all a very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi . Karupatti or Palm Jaggery is filled with health benefits . I have earlier shared the Madurai Special Karupatti Appam Recipe

Today I am sharing a very interesting Karupatti Kozhukatti recipe with you all. This is a sweet and spicy kozhukattai recipe and is also a very traditional  recipe.

Peppercorns, cumin and dry ginger give this kozhukattai a unique taste. A quick to make and guilt free treat for the festival.

Karuvepillai Kozhukattai

Village Style Karupatti Karuvepillai Kozhukattai :

Preparation time : 5 minutes
Cooking time : 40 minutes
Serves : 4-6
1 cup = 250 ml cup

Ingredients :

250 gm palm jaggery/karupatti OR 1/2 cup palm jaggery ( roughly chopped)
1 cup rice flour 
3/4 cup water
pinch of salt ( optional)
1 teaspoon oil ( to grease the moulds )

To grind :

1/2 teaspoon oil or ghee ( optional)
1/4 cup fresh curry leaves 
1 teaspoon cumin seeds/jeera 
1/2 teaspoon peppercorns 
 1/2 " dry ginger ( crushed)
1/4 cup coconut ( grated, optional)

Method : 

1. In a kadai or pan, add oil and roast peppercorns,  cumin seeds , dry ginger and curry leaves till they turn fragrant and switch off. 

2. Transfer this to the jar of a mixer, add coconut and grind .

Chef tip : Grind it without any water. 
3. In a heavy bottom kadai/wok add the palm jaggery and water.

4. When the jaggery melts completely, filter and transfer it again to the same kadai.
5. Cook the jaggery water over low flame and add the ground mixture.

6. Add pinch of salt and the rice flour.
7. Keep mixing so that there are no lumps .

Chef tip : The entire cooking has to be done over low flame only.
8. The entire mixture will come together.
Chef tip : This step will take 5-6 minutes over low flame. If the mixture is too loose, add more rice flour. Take a small piece of the dough and try making a ball. If you are able to make it without breaking, the dough is ready.
9. Switch off and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes.
10. You can shape the kozhukattai( dumplings) in the shape of your choice. I used a mould to shape them like Modak.
11. Once you have shaped them, transfer them to a greased steamer and steam cook them for 7-8 minutes only and switch off.

Your Traditional Village Style Karupatti Karuvepillai Kozhukattai is now ready .
