Sesame oil: 1 tsp
Water: 3/4 cup


For pooranam
Grated jaggery: 1/2 cup

Procedure:
Step1:
Mix coconut, jaggery and cardomom powder together in a heavy bottom pan and cook in low flame stirring constantly until all the jaggery melts and mixed well with coconut. The pooranam should be little thick.

Easy way:
Mix all the ingredients(do not add water) in microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave for 2 min in High
The pooranam is now ready.
Divide the pooranam to 15 small balls.


Step2:
Boil water, ghee and salt together.Switch off the flame and add the rice flour stirring constantly without any lumps.



Step3:
Once the mixture becomes warm, knead it to a pliable dough similar to chappathi dough.Divide this to 15 small sized balls.


Step4:
Grease your hand with little ghee/sesame oil and make a small cup shape with the dough.Put the pooranam inside and close it.





Step5:
Steam cook for 6-8 minutes.The kozhukattai will look shiny once it is cooked.Do not cook more than that.Otherwise the outer covering will become hard
