How to make Spicy Ammini Kozhukattai

  1. Sieve rice flour and salt together.
  2. Boil water in a pan. Switch off when it reaches boiling point (once water starts bubbling up).
  3. 3. Add hot water little by little to the rice flour and mix nicely with a ladle until you get a dough. I would prefer to use my hands and make sure that you are able to tolerate the hotness with your hand.
  4. Allow the rice mixture to stand for 10 minutes.
  5. Make small balls out of the flour and steam in steamer/Idli cooker for 8 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, we can prepare spicy powder for our steamed balls.
  7. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  8. 8. Add chana dal, Urad dal, coriander seeds, cumin, pepper corns and roast for few minutes until nice aroma comes out of it. Add red chilies followed by coconut and roast for 3-4 minutes.
  9. Cool down the mixture and grind into coarse powder in a mixer.
  10. Heat oil in a frying pan and add seasoning ingredients.
  11. Add the steamed balls and spice powder. Mix well such that the balls are coated with the spice powder evenly.
  12. Fry for 3-4 minutes. Switch off the flame and Serve immediately.

My Tip:

1. Use hot water. Add water little by little to avoid becoming watery. Less water in the flour will make balls harder 2. Don’t steam the balls for a longer time as they tend to break
