This kolakattai or sweet dumpling is another failure turned success.I was trying to make
coconut filled pancakes for breakfast.On the process of making the jaggery syrup,i
accidentally added more water,and now the coconut scrapings were less. As i was not in
a mood to scrape more coconut i added ragi flour,red rice flour and steamed it .
The wait to encounter negative comments turned to be a stream of compliments.
Success has to be shared ,so here’s the recipe.Do try and send in your comments.
1 cup coconut grated
1/2 -3/4 cup jaggery melted in a little water
1 cup ragi/kurakkan flour
1/2 cup red rice flour
1 tsp ghee
1/2 tsp.cardamon powder
Mix all ingredients like for dumplings or kolakattai.
Grease steamer moulds or iddli moulds and steam for 5-8 minutes.(not sticky to the
Can be served with coconut gratings.Good for breakfast or snack.As ragi or kurakkan is
used diabetics can take for sugar cravings.
