Nuts Kozhukattai is one of my recent try which has become hit in my family. I love nuts and I like to try it out in all my recipes in different ways. One such finding is this!!
I am a great lover of Kozhukattai and my kids too!! I make it regularly at home. I wanted to use some stuffing/filling other than chana dal, coconut and jaggery. There came the idea of nuts as I add nuts to most of my cake recipes!!
I have taken equal quantity of badam, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts in this recipe. You can select your own variety of nuts or use only one nut instead of many varieties.
I have roasted the nuts first. Then chopped them to small pieces and added it. Instead of chopping if you would like to grind it to coarse, you can or the nuts can be powdered too. But chopping the nuts to small pieces gives crunchiness in every bite😊
Regarding jaggery, the one I used was without impurities. So I grinded it to powder and added. If the jaggery you use has impurities, add little water, boil it and filter before using.
Kozhukattai is very famous during Ganesh Chathurthi, a festival for Lord Ganesha in India and you can try this recipe during that time or as a snack for evening time. It is very healthy as we are steaming them❤
