Sweet Rava Pidi Kozhukattai/Sweet Semolina Dumplings

Ganesh Chathurthi is 9th september. Tempted by variety of modaks posted by fellow bloggers, i prepared this vegan sweet dumplings with rava today, this dumplings takes hardly less minute to get ready when compared to the usual rice dumpling. Roasted rava, sugar,cardamom powder,some grated coconut is just enough to make this quick dumplings.If  you dont have rice flour or dont know how to make stuffed modaks, still you can make this quick,easy dumplings to please the God Ganesha.

This dumplings are vegan,if you have rava at home,just make this tiny dumplings even if you dont have enough time to make Kozhukattais. I will definitely try my hands to make the same sweet version with cornmeal to check whether this method works with yellow cornmeal.


1cup Rava
3/4cup Sugat
1tsp Cardamom powder
1/2cup Grated coconut
Pinch salt
1cup Boiling water

Roast the rava in a pan for few minutes.

Add the sugar, grated coconut, cardamom powder to the roasted rava, cook in simmer for few seconds.

Now pour in the boiling water and cook until the rava turns as a dough and get off from the pan.

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

Pressure cook them for 10 minutes in Idly Cooker.

Serve hot.
