Spicy Kozhukattai / Brown Rice Dumpling


  • Kerala Red Rice / Brown Rice >   1 cup
  • Grated Coconut >   ½ cup
  • Cumin Seed / Jeerakam  >  1 tsp
  • Mustard Seeds / Kaduki >   ½ tsp
  • Chana Dal >  1 tbp
  • Urad Dal >  1 tbp
  • Dry Red Chilly >   3
  • Green Chilly >  2 (cut lengthwise)
  • Curry Leaves >   2 stems
  • Oil >  1 tbp
  • Salt to taste


  • Soak the rice for 5-6 hrs. Rice will become very soft that you can break it using your fingers.
  • Grind the rice into a fine powder without adding water.
  • Mix grinded rice, coconut, cumin seeds and salt in a bowl to make smooth dough. Make small lemon sized balls out of dough.
  • Boil water in a thick bottomed sauce pan / Pressure cooker with enough water to immerse the rice balls when dropped in.
  • When the water start boiling, drop the rice balls one by one. The dumpling will begin to float once it is cooked.  If you are using a pressure cooker close it and cook it for 1 whistle.
  • Drain the rice balls from the boiling water.
  • Heat oil in a pan.  Add mustard seed, urad dal & chana dal and sauté the mixture for 1 minute.  Now add green chilly, dry chilly & curry leaves and roast them.
  • Now add cooked rice balls and sauté for 3-4 minutes and remove from flame.
  • Spicy Kozhukattai / Brown Rice Dumpling is now ready to be served.  It is served well when hot and with onion coconut chutney.
