Quinoa Sweet Kozhukattai

Wishing you all a Happy Ganesh Chathurthi, hope you guys are very much busy in preparing this wonderful festival with many delicious dishes, seriously am missing those days in India..Eventhough its working day here, we wont skip this festival at any cost as Ganesh is my favourite god...Coming to this sweet kozhukattais, i prepared them using quinoa and rice together eventhough i dont have any idea about the final result, but i was very much happy to see my creation turned out super prefect,addictive and highly delicious..Quite a healthy kozhukattais to offer as prasadam to Lord Ganesh...This sweet kozhukattais tastes and ressembles exactly like our usual kozhukattais, quinoa in this dumplings didnt changed the taste and turned this kozhukattais super prefect...I couldnt stopped myself having them,yep they are quite addictive..My teddies helped me to make these cute looking balls, i dont want to change their shape as my mini chefs helped a lot for making them, you can very well prepare them as pidi kozhukattais..


1/2cup Quinoa (soaked for two hours)
1/2cup Rice(soaked for two hours)
1/2cup Jaggery syrup
1tbsp Oil
1tsp Cardamom powder
2tbsp Yellow moongdal (roasted)
1/4cup Grated coconut

Grind the soaked rice,soaked quinoa with enough water as fine paste..take this grounded paste,jaggery syrup 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,let them cool completely..

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

Enjoy warm..

    Should we add quinoa along with rice? Also should I soak them?
