Uluthamparuppu poorana kozhukattai

Uluthamparuppu poorana kozhukattai is a special tasty dish and one of the neyivedhyam on Vinayaka Chaturti Festival. I prepare any one of the kozhukattai on the Sankatahara Chathurthi every month. Last saturday, I prepared this type of Kozhukattai.
Sankatahara Chathurthi is a special day and this day is even more special both of my kids were on this day. So I try to offer something on this day of every month to Lord Ganesha.

You need:
Urad dhal - 1/2 cup
rice flour - 1 cup
green chilli - 3
oil - 2 tsp
curry leaves - 3 bunch
salt - to taste
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Hing - 1/4 tsp
Grated coconut - 1 tsp

Soak the urad dhal in water for 30 mins and after that take the uad rdhal from water.
Add green chilli and salt and grid the urad dhal in a mixer one or twice
Add the ground urad dhal mixture and cook it in idly plate in a pressure cooker for 5mins. You can smell the nice aroma while it gets cooked.

Take the cooked urad dhal mixture from the pressure cooker and using your hand break the urad dhal mixture.
Heat the pan and add mustard seeds and once the mustard starts to sputter add hing, grated coconut and urad dhal mixture and mix it well and keep it aside

Make equal size urad dhal mixture balls and keep it aside.
Take a pan and add 1/2 cup water , 1 teaspoon oil and little salt and when the water starts to boil , add the rice flour and mix it well and remove from flame and keep it aside covered with plate
Take the rice flour mixture after 5-10 mins and sprinkle some warm water and also some oil and mix it well like a chapati dough.

Take some oil in a bowl and take little oil in a hand and then take little amount of rice flour and using the oil make it like a cup and then in the middle of it add the urad dhal pooranam.

For a detailed step by step explanation to prepare the outer cover for the kozhukattai is given here. Close the flour and keep it aside.

Steam cook the urad dhal poorna kozhukattai in pressure cooker by placing it in a idli plate for 5 mins
The delicious urad dhal poorana kozhukattai is ready for neivedhyam as well as for serving.


  1. Hey Vidhu, shud we grind the urad dal mixture like we do for ulundhu vadai[smooth] or do we grind it in the consistency of paruppu usli[kara-kara] ? lemme know!!

    Otherwise a very yummy recipe.. Love having it simply for tiffin also :)

  2. Grind it coarse like for paruppu usuli, only then you can shred it well and stuff! Make sure you do not excess water (not even the soaked water)

  3. Looks great Vidhya! My mom would make it for Ganesh chaturthi.Never thought of it as a snack. My kids love finger food...add some grated carrots and peas to the mix and it makes a complete healthy meal for them. Thanks for the recipe!
