Kozhukattai is a traditional dish that is famous in the southern parts of India. It is commonly known as a serving for lord Ganesh on the occasion of Vinayaka Chaturthi. People around the country however, are more familiar with Modak which is also offered to Lord Ganesh during this time in western states of India. Kozhukattai has a texture similar to that of a dumpling and shape that is similar to its western alternative, Modak. However, in its every savoury bite, Kerala Kozhukattai has different layers of jaggery and coconut that just burst in the mouth. Every bite of this delicacy from the state of Kerala is an explosion of flavours and tradition.

Kerala Kozhukattai is famous for its delicious filling. Made out of a perfect blend of jaggery, coconut and cardamom, this filling really makes the dish a mouthful. Mouth-watering as it is, it also has a texture that is quite different from other Indian sweets. Apart from its ethereal deliciousness, it also has positive health impacts. Jaggery, which is an integral part of the filling, is the healthy alternative of refined sugar since it is fibrous and good for digestion.

Preparing this traditional Kerala delicacy is not a challenging task. However, it can definitely be tedious to find a recipe that serves you with an authentic taste capable of teleporting you to the beautiful land of Kerala.  To help you with that problem, Puviya has brought to you a special recipe of Kerala Kozhukattai that will give you the traditional mouth-watering taste.
