Note:

  • The quantity of water used to knead the dough will vary depending on the quality of the rice flour.
  • The same process can be followed with millet flour as well.
  • I used 1 cup of rice flour , divided it into 3 small portions and used it for 3 different recipes. If you use 1 cup rice flour dough as such you will have plenty of Ammini Kozhukatti!
  • I used homemade rice flour. You can use store bought one too.
  • Knead the dough when it is still warm.
  • If making in batches, keep the dough covered with a damp cloth.
  • Do not over steam the rice ball. They will tend to become chewy / tough if over steamed.
  • The coconut -jaggery mixture can be stored in the freezer for a few days / frozen and used as needed.
  • Tastes best when served warm.
