Godumai Rava Pidi Kozhukkatai

When we make pidi kozhukkatai at home, it is always made with raw rice. But when I saw these healthy godumai rava kozhukkatai in Sandhya’s blog, I decided to try this and am very happy that I tried. It is definitely tasty and healthy too.

Whole wheat rava
2 cups
Bengal gram dal
1/4 cup
Red chillies
Fresh coconut
1/4 cup
4 cups
To taste

3 tbsp
1 tsp
Urad dal
2 tsp
Channa dal
1 tsp
Curry leaves
1/4 tsp

Soak the Bengal gram dal and red chillies in water for 1/ 2hour

Grind it into coarse paste with minimum water

In a pan dry roast the broken wheat rava till a good smell emanates.

 Transfer it to a plate and let it cool down completely
Now heat the oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. Once this starts to splutter add the dals and asafoetida and saute for a few seconds. Now add the curry leaves
Now add the ground paste and cook on low flame for a few seconds.

Add the water slowly as it tends to splutter.
Add the coconut and salt. Mix well and let it boil

Once it starts boiling, reduce the flame and slowly add the rava, mixing continuously

Cover with a plate and let it cook till all the moisture is absorb. 

This will approximately take 5 minutes
Once all the water is absorbed, switch off the fire and let the mixture cool down

Before it cools down completely, make tight oblong balls as shown, arrange these on the steaming plate of a steamer

Steam it for 8-10 minutes.

 Let it sit for another 5 minutes for it to slightly cool down. Now transfer this to a serving dish and serve with chutney of your choice. I served it with thakkali thokku
