Chocolate kozhukattai (Chocolate Dumplings)

I am back after a long vacation! It took me sometime to get back to routine and that is the reason for this delayed post in MyCheerfulKitchen. Wishing you all a very happy Vinayaka Chaturti! This time, I made chocolate kozhukattai for my dear modern Ganesha :) I am very happy to share the recipe with you all.

For the kozhukattai/dumpling:
  • Rice flour - 1/2 cup
  • Water - 3/4 cup
  • Milk - 4 teaspoons
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Oil - 1 tablespoon

For the filling:
  • Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Ghee - 1 teaspoon
  • Grated chocolate - 1/4 cup

  1. Take a heavy bottomed pan and mix all the ingredients required for the kozhukattai/dumpling
  2. On a low flame, keep stirring continuously. You will notice that the mixture will thicken
  3. Once it starts to leave the sides of the pan and forms a soft dough consistency, switch off the flame. This should take about 3 to 5 minutes
  4. Grease your hands with little oil and knead the dough to remove any lumps. Keep aside, closed
  5. Heat a teaspoon of ghee in a pan and add coconut to it. Fry for a few minutes till a nice aroma spreads and the coconut changes color
  6. Remove from fire and add in the grated chocolate. Mix well. Keep aside
  7. Grease you hands with little oil and make small balls (pebble sized) of the dough
  8. You can use a modak mould or shape them like you do for usual kozhukattai. Fill it with a spoon of the chocolate filling and and seal the edges
  9. Grease an idly tray with oil and place these sealed kozhukattais in it
  10. Steam the dumplings for 3 minutes and they are ready to be munched!!!!!!

Note: I used chocolate ganache instead of grated chocolate and hence the filling was a bit gooey but still tasted great! You can use grated chocolate/ chocolate syrup / melted chocolate according to your preference
