Karupatti Pidi Kozhukattai/Palm Jaggery Sweet Dumplings

How about  making an another interesting sweet dumplings for the Ganesh chathurthi, that too with palm jaggery. During my mom's recent trip to India, she came back with some palm jaggery which am adding in my tea or coffee instead of sugar, tastewise they dont change anything but somehow none at home like this jaggery. But am ok with it, since i want to finish some leftover jaggery, i tried making this sweet dumplings with them. Palm Jaggery rich in iron, it prevents diseases like anemia and also contains essential nutrients like magnesium and potassium. Magnesium is vital for the proper functioning of the nervous systems and the potassium regulates the blood pressure and the heart functions.

It purifies the blood, prevents rheumatism and  is highly nutritious in value and plam aggery is also useful in combating problems like cough and stomach ailments like indigestion, acidity and constipation. Consumption of jaggery is useful for those who are exposed to pollution on a regular basis like industrial workers.Palm jaggery is a natural sweetner and energy food it is very rich in minerals. The benefits of palm jaggery include its ability to cleanse your body, act as a digestive agent, sweeten your food in a healthy manner, provide good amounts of minerals. Highly rich in calcium and make use of their goodness by adding constantly in your diet.Sending to my own event CWS-Rice guest hosted by Shruti Dhingra Wahi of Shurti Rasoi.


1cup Rice flour
1cup Grated palm jaggery (adjust as u desire)
1tsp Cardamom powder
1/2cup Grated coconut

Add 2cups of water to the plam jaggery, cook in simmer until its gets dissolves.

Strain this jaggery water to remove the impurities.

Bring boil this jaggery water, add the cardamom powder, grated coconut, gradually add the rice flour and cook until the mixture gets off the vessel.


Take a small ball from the dough and  press it with your fingers.

Steam cook them for 10 minutes in Idly Cooker.

Serve hot..
