We got to know this through "tamilini" sweet shop which has many srilankan sweets...this kozhukattai is famous ,because of its unique taste.....it is made with brown rice flour and moong dal...both the filling and outer gives wonderful taste...As they say healthy food is not tasty,u should try this version...
Brown rice flour-1 cup
Hot water-2 cups
Salt to taste
Half cooked moong dal-1/3 cup
Boil the water and salt ,sprinkle the flour slowly and stir it non stop until it forms a tight dough..
Cover and rest it for ten minutes
I used double house puttu maavu
Cook the dal on stove top,drain the water,add coconut and sugar
Apply some oil on a zip-lock and spread dough
Keep the filling in center
and press without removing the zip-lock,and seal the edges
Steam it for 7-8 minutes,and switch off the flame
Let it cool for 2 minutes and then remove the kozhukattai
