A simple, sweet food, with rich coconut milk, which can be made within a short time. Used to have this as a kid, always asking for more and now I am happy to make this chettinad food more than enough.
1. Rice flour - 1/2cup
3. Water - 1/2cup
4. Coconut milk - 1 cup
5. Sugar - 6 tsp
6. Cardamom - 3 or 4
1. Boil water along with salt, remove from heat, add the rice flour and mix it with a spoon initially and then using hand, form a dough. While it is hot, take tiny portions and make small balls or cylindrical shapes. Steam cook these rice balls for 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Mix sugar to the coconut milk, add cardamom powder or whole cardamom, mix well, add the cooked rice balls or kolukattai and let it soak for some time before it is served.
