Instructions
  1. Soak the Bengal Gram Dhal (Kadala Parippu) and Red Chilli for about 30 minutes.
  2. After about 30 minutes remove water from the soaked Bengal Gram Dhal, Red Chilli and grind them adding 2 – 3 Tspns. water and keep this paste separately.
  3. Heat a Cheenachatti and change the Broken Wheat (Nurukku Gothambu) into the Cheenachatti and roast it in medium flame. When colour of the Broken Wheat turns into golden, take it from the Cheenachatti and keep it aside.
  4. Heat some Oil in the Cheenachatti and add Mustard seeds into this hot oil and allow to burst the Mustard seeds. Then add Black gram Dhal, Curry leaves also and stir it for some time. When colour of this mix turns into Golden/Brown, add about 2 cups of Water and required quantity of Salt and let the water boil for about five minutes. Then add the paste (already prepared with soaked Bengal Gram Dhal and Red Chilli and kept aside) and stir it further.
  5. Add the roasted Broken Wheat, grated Coconut and Asafoetida powder into this boiling water and stir it well. When the broken Wheat is half cooked, put off the stove and keep it for about 10 – 15 minutes in a plate or in the same Cheenachatti itself.
  6. After 10 – 15 minutes, stir the mix again and make small/medium size rolls with the mix. Apply little oil in the round shaped pits of the idly steamer plates (by using some cotton) and change the rolls into the Idly steamer plates. Cover the idly maker with its cover and cook the rolls (ready-to-cook Kozhukkatta) in medium flame for about 15 minutes. When the Kozhukkattas are cooked properly, take the steamer plate out and change the Kozhukkattas to a serving plate
  7. Masala Kozhukkatta made with broken Wheat is ready. This Kozhukkatta can serve with Coconut/Onion/Tomato Chutney.
