Kozhukattai Recipe step-by-step recipe instruction.

A few years back when I visited one of my friend’s place in Bangalore, She offered me dumplings which were filled with coconut and jaggery. She’s a Malayali catholic and an awesome cook. It also happened to be a palm Sunday. She told me these dumplings are called Kozhukattai and it’s a tradition in Kerala serving it on Palm Sunday.

It’s similar sweet which is called “Goud Mutli” in Mangalore, means sweet dumplings.

A healthy sweet, you don’t need to wait till festivals to have it. You can have it for breakfast, or evening snacks.
