Ammini Kozhukattai

Happy Vinayak Chaturthi ... been a long time since I was here.

 I have been making the Kozhukattai (Modak) the past so many years.  And it was just the other day, that my SIL who was visiting us, said that they would make these tiny balls of the left over rice dough covering and season it and made into a tasty snack!.

So this time, after I made the Kozhukatai - see link for the recipe, I actually made sure I had some left over covering dough.

Leftover Kozhukattai dough

For seasoning:
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard - 1/4 tsp
Black gram dal - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida (hing) - pinch
Green chillies ( to taste) - chopped finely
Red Chili powder - to taste
Curry leaves - few

Take the left over dough.  The dough has only a pinch of salt.  And you will need to add more salt. Knead lightly
Make into small balls.  The balls here are actually very small, but the closeup picture makes it look larger than they really are.
Steam the little balls for about 8-10 minutes

Take oil in wok
Add the mustard, wait till it crackles
Add the urad ( black gram dal) and hing.
Allow to lightly brown
Add the green chilies and curry leaves
Followed by the steamed balls.
Add chilie powder, or any curry powder if you want it spicier.
Toss.  If you want it crisp, keep a while longer till it develops a crust.
