Kozhukottai is a flavourful and delicious sweet that is often prepared in most homes in Tamil Nadu. Today I am going to share my mother in law's recipe of making yummy kozhukottai using groundnut, sesame seeds, coconut and jaggery as a filling. The Kozhukottai comes out delicious.

You can also prepare the jaggery filling in advance, refrigerate for a couple of days and make kozhukottai for your family as an evening snack or when guests visit your home. This saves your time and effort.


2 and 1/2 cups rice flour
2 and 1/2 cups water
1 and 1/2 cups crushed or grated jaggery
3/4 cup groundnut
1/2 cup white sesame seeds
1/2 cup finely grated coconut


  • Dry roast the sesame seeds in a pan or kadai for a few minutes till fragrant and transfer to a bowl.
  • Dry roast the groundnut also and transfer to a plate. Allow it to cool down and gently press with a small flat bottle to remove the skin of the groundnut. Tap the plate a few times so that the outer cover of the groundnut falls off and transfer the groundnuts to mixer jar and grind to a coarse powder.
  • Similarly grind the sesame seeds to a powder and keep ready.
  • Take grated coconut in a bowl. Add the sesame seeds powder, jaggery and groundnut powder and mix well.
  • Check for taste and add jaggery if needed.
  • Now for preparing the rice flour chapathi, boil water in a pan.
  • Take the rice flour in a large bowl and add the boiling water little by little to the flour and mix well with a spoon. (Do not add all the water. Different flours absorb water differently. )When you feel like it has come together, stop adding water and allow the flour mix to cool down. 
  • Sprinkle some water if needed and knead to form a smooth dough. Add some oil if necessary and knead again.
  • Now take a small ball and roll to form a chapathi of medium thickness. 

  • Use a cookie cutter or a small bowl to cut out a round shape and place the filling on one side. 
  • Apply water with your fingertips around the edges, and close the chapathi as shown.
  • In the same way, make all the kozhukottai.

  • Once ready, take a steamer or an idli cooker stand and arrange as shown.
  • Add some water to the bottom of the idli cooker and place the stand on it.
  • Close the lid and steam for about 15 minutes.
  • Allow it to cool down a bit and remove from the stand.
  • Serve warm.
