Sweet Ammini Kozhukattai | Sweet Mani Kozhukattai | Ganesh Chathurthi Recipe

Sweet Ammini/ Mani Kozhukattai, a quick to make rice flour dumpling sweetened with jaggery syrup.In our school days, amma used to make this uppu kozhukattai as snacks for our evenings often and making of this sweet kozhukattai  is almost same as of uppu kozhukattai except here it's sweetened with jaggery syrup and topped with grated coconut and roasted sesame seeds for more flavor and texture. If you're a beginner or trying to make kozhukattai for the first time, this recipe is an ideal one to start with. It's such a fool proof recipe and you can't go wrong with it.

But if you're making this in larger batch, you may find it tiresome to roll all the kozhukattais into small balls. In that scenario, you may include your kids/spouse to roll the kozhukattais, i'm sure that they would love to do it, or you can invite over your friends and do it as group cooking, chit chatting and rolling, it would be so much fun. Actually it reminds me of the time where Amma and aunties, sat together, chit chatting and rolling the dough for seedai, paal kozhukattai. Ok, enough with the old memories, now let's check out how i have prepared this sweet ammini/mani kozhukattai. For more ganesh chathurthi recipe check here.
