Pacharisi Kozhukatai

I like this saltless  kozhukatai to a big extent.. On karthigai days , my amma makes this finger shaped  kozhukatai  for Karthigai , Avvaiyar viratham & Ganesh Chathurthi. We make kozhukatais according to our creativity.  Anyway Aachi usually says number of dheepam kozhukatais made should be equal to number of members in our family. During Karthigai, plates with this agal vilakku(kozhkatai) and this finger shaped kozhukatai plays a big role from my childhood. My amma actually had this habit. She takes the finger shaped kozhukatai one by one, heats it in agal vilakku (kozhkattai) and she will say “what a taste!” . On seeing this, I tried it to do always during these festive seasons. Of course, I love this taste while eating with coconut bite.
Rice flour – 1 cup

Grated Coconut – 1/4 Cup

Water – according to the quantity of rice flour
Gingely oil – 1 teaspoon

Method :-
Make a dough by mixing  water with the rice flour & Grated Coconut . 

For softness you can add gingely oil to make the dough soft. Make the kozhukatais with the dough according to your creativity.
Take  water  in a pan. Let it boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add kozhukatais to the boiled water.
 After some time, kozhukatais can be taken from the pan. 
Don’t  steam it for a long time because kozhukatai will become rough. 
This saltless kozhukatai is ready to be served with grated coconut..
