Peanut Kozhukattai / kolukattai / sweet dumplings recipe (Pidi Kolukattai) - FOR VINAYAKAR CHATURTI / VARALAKSHMI POOJA / VARALAKSHMI Nombu

This recipe I discovered by chance. I had some left over idyappam dough and wondering what to do. I was thinking of doing kolukattai. Dough was bit dry and couldn't make it into normal kolukattai covering. So I just added sugar, coconut and peanut powder and made it as pidi kolukattai. It was super duper hit. My first son who was not a big fan of sugar base Indian sweet loved it too. So here you go with the recipe
Ingredients :

Rice Flour - 1.5 Cups
Water - 1 1/2 Cups
Salt a pinch
Sugar - 2 tablespoon ( I have used brown sugar)
Grated Coconut - 3 tablespoon
Coarse Peanut powder - 2-4 tablespoon (I had store brought powder if don't have just powder the roasted peanut)
Salt a pinch


Method:


Boil 1 1/2 cup of water, teaspoon of oil with Salt. Reduce the flame and add the flours and mix well with spoon. Switch off the flame and leave it for 3-5 mins. Apply oil on your hand and mix the dough well.
Make them in to a soft dough (Adjust water accordingly. The dough should be like smooth chapathi dough). ( I have done the flour in 2 batches). Cover it with wet cloth till you need it
Add Sugar, peanut, salt, grated coconut and mix well. Take a lemon size ball and flatten it with finger to get the shape. Steam it in idli cooker till it is cooked
Serve hot. It tastes good next day too
