Aval(Poha) Kozhukattai

Poha/ flattened rice/ Aval is always easy to cook and we can prepare any dish very quickly with is. Last week tried Kozhukattai using poha and it turned good. Kozhukattai is very famous dish; we use to do this for Vinayagar chadhurthi. There are different versions stuffing once, plain, sweet etc.


Aval/ Poha
1 ½ cup
Onion chopped
One hand ful
Mustard seeds
1 tsp
Split urad dal
1 tsp
Dry red chili
¼ tsp
Coconut shredded
2 Tbsp
2 cup


  1. Using mixe or blender, grind poha to course powder (like soji/ rava).
  2. Heat oil in a pan, When its hot add asafetida, mustard seeds after it splutter add chili and urad dal, fry for few seconds. Add water and add enough salt.
  3. When the water starts to boil add powdered poha and mix well. In this stage mix coconut and turn off the stove (it will take 2 -3 minutes).
  4. Before it cool’s down make cylinder shape or balls (When making this cylinder shape your finger prints should be there dodn’t make it smooth just press using your fingers).
  5. Steam cook, those balls for 10 minutes.Serve hot with any chutney or you can have plain.
Note: I got 1 cup poha rava for 1 ½ cup poha.
