Red Rice Ammini Kozhukattais/Red Rice Savoury Steamed Balls

Tomorrow is the most popular and famous Ganesh chathurthi, wish i live in India during this festival. Seriously am missing these festivals here, coz we dont have that much fun as we have in India, its a working day tomorrow to everyone and i'll be alone at home making foods and poojas. Coming to this cute looking red rice mani kozhukattais aka ammini kozhukattais, i prepared them yesterday to give a try with red rice flour,for my surprise they came out extremely delicious,tasty and prefect for the celebration. Give a try to this healthy and colourful steamed balls.

Usually ammini kozhukattai's or mani kozhukattai's are made out of leftover dough of the kozhukattais we make during this festivals.This is the most tastiest of the kozhukattais for me so i'll be waiting to make some mini kozhukattais with the leftover dough after every vinagayar chathurthi festival. Even its time consuming to make those mini balls, its really worth to try them.Sending to my own event Healthy Dish-Steamed Foods guest hosted by Jaleela of Cookbookjaleela and to Priti's Festive Food Ganesh Chaturthi.



1cup Red rice flour (roasted)
1cup Water
1/2tsp Salt
1tbsp Oil
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1tsp Urad dal
Few Curryleaves
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2nos Dry red chillies
3tbsp Grated coconut
1tbsp Sesame seeds
Oil for tempering


In a bowl, boil water with salt and oil. When the water starts boiling add red rice flour and stir well until rice flour mixed with water. Keep aside for 10 minutes.

Knead again to a soft dough, roll them tiny mini balls,transfer them to a greased idly plate and steam cook for 10minutes in a steamer.

Grind the dry red chillies,grated coconut and sesame seeds as coarse paste and keep aside.

Heat enough oil for tempering, let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal, add the curry leaves and asafoetida powder.

Add immediately the steamed cooked ammini kozhukattais, grounded paste and cook until the balls gets well tossed with the spices.

They look very cute, I am sure children can be involved in the shaping of these, I remember doing so in my friends house. As they say, many hands make light work.

J'ai acheté du riz rouge que je n'ai pas encore cuisiné mais je n'ai jamais fait attention à sa farine.
Ces boulettes doivent être délicieuses.
Bonne fête à toi et aux tiens.
A bientôt
