  • Mix 1/2 cup of milk, 11/2 cups of water to the rice flour with ghee and a pinch of salt together.
  • Heat the batter in a pan (preferably non stick) and keep stirring without any lumps, till it forms a dough consistency.
  • When it is cool, add 4 tsp oil to that and knead it into a soft dough.
  • Make small balls (like u do for seedai) out of this.
  • Take milk from the coconut.
  • :- Check out here how to do it. First time when u extract milk from the coconut, u will get thick milk. Keep this as your 1st extract. Again add water and extract milk. This time u will get a thinner milk. Repeat it again the third time too where u will get a very thin extract. Do not mix the coconut milks together. keep aside.
  • :- If u are using tinned coconut milk, add 1/2 cup of water to 1/2 cup of the coconut milk cream to get the first thick extract. Take 1/4 cup of coconut cream and add 1/2 cup of water to make the 2nd extract and repeat this step again for the 3rd extract with the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut milk cream.
  • In a non stick pan, add the 3rd extract and the rice balls.
  • When it boils and when the balls float on top, add the 2nd extract.
  • Add the 1st extract and the sugar after 3 minutes.
  • Let it thicken and then add the cardamom powder.
  • :- Kozhukattais are ready to be served.
