Jackfruit Sweet Pidi Kozhukattai

If you searching something new and completely different from our usual kozhukattais, give a trial to the wonderful looking jackfruit sweet dumplings, actually after trying this kind of sweet dumplings with Wheat flour and ragi flour, this year for Vinayaka chathurthi i wanted to make something different from my usual preparation, i tried these sweet dumplings today by grinding soaked rice and canned jackfruit chunks together with sugar which i cooked later in medium flame until they turned as a thick dough and prepared this dumplings along with roasted moongdal and freshly grated coconut..For my surprise this pidi kozhukattais tastes fabulous,quite addictive and completely new and different from the usual pidi kozhukattais..If you like jackfruits very much,you will definitely love this cute looking kozhukattais..


1cup Rice (soaked for two hours)
1cup Jackfruit chunks(canned or fresh one)
1/2cup Sugar
1tbsp Oil
1tbsp Cardamom powder
2tbsp Yellow moongdal (roasted)
1/4cup Grated coconut

Grind the soaked rice, jackfruit chunks,sugar with enough water as fine paste..take this grounded paste with oil in a non stick pan, cook in medium flame until this grounded paste turn as thick dough, add the cardamom powder,roasted moongdal and grated coconut,mix everything well and keep aside..

Take a small ball from the dough and press with your fingers, arrange them over a greased plate and steam cook for 10minutes in Idly cooker..

Enjoy warm..
