Every year for Vinayaka chathurthi, we will make kolukattai recipe. This recipe is very easy to make and tasty too. We can use ready made rice flour available in Indian grocery store. I tried this recipe little differently with mango stuffings. Try this and let me know..
Rice flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
For filling :
mango - 1 (cut into cubes)
Jaggery - 1/2 tbsp grated
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Chop mango pieces into cubes and keep aside.
Heat a tsp of oil and add mango cubes and little water and cook till it becomes soft.
Then add grated jaggery and cook till it thickens and finally add cardamom powder and turn off heat and let it cool.
Take a cup of rice flour and add salt to it and luke warm water to it and form a dough. Dough should be little soft.
Grease your hands with little oil and take a lemon size flour dough and flatten them with your hands to a little circle. Now place a tsp of filling in the center and seal all the edges.
Finally place all the kolukattais in the idly cooker and steam it for about 10-15 min.
Kolukattai is ready to serve.
