Kozhukattai is a South Indian recipe and there are many variants of it, both sweet and salted. One of them is rice kozhukattai which is a breakfast item.
Soak rice in water overnight and keep it aside.
Grind rice to a coarse mixture alongwith salt and very little water.
When the coarse mixture is ready, add grated coconut to it and grind again. Make sure the mixture is not very fine.
Heat a little oil in a pan and crackle mustard seeds. Add red chillies to it and roast them.
Add the mixture to it and keep on stirring till it turns thick and no trace of water remains. Remove it from the stove.
After the mixture cools, prepare oval balls out of it. You can use a little water to aid the shaping process.
Steam the balls in a pressure cooker using an ordinary vessel or an idli steamer. Add 2.5 cups of water to the cooker.
Steam for 20 minutes and serve kozhukattai with chutney.
