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 different types of kozhukattai as our evening snacks which is really a healthy and fulfilling snacks compared to any packed snacks.

Uppu kozhukattai , thengai kozhukattai and this sweet kozhukattai are the most common kozhukattai that I grew up eating as snacks and we don't wait for festivals to prepare these snacks at our home. 

Making of this mani kozhukattai  is almost the same as of uppu kozhukattai except here it's  mildly 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 a larger batch, you may find it tiresome to roll all the kozhukattai into small balls. In that scenario, you may include your kids/spouse to roll the kozhukattai, 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. Good old memories !!  Ok,  now let's check out how I have prepared this sweet ammini/mani kozhukattai. For more ganesh chathurthi recipes check here.

  • Roll the kozhukattai into small balls helps to blends with other flavors well.
  • The sugar syrup should be sticky to coat the kozhukattai well.
  • Adding roasted sesame seeds give nice flavor to this kozhukattai, but you can skip that too if you don't have it.
