Kozhukuttundai/Kozhukattai/Rice dumplings with sweet filling

Ingredients to make the dumpling
Rice flour - 3 cups
Water - 4 cups
Salt as needed

Ingredients for the filling
Grated coconut - 1 whole coconut
Jaggery - approximately 500 gm
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

How to prepare the filling - Melt jaggery with 1/2 cup of water. Now pass this through a sieve to remove all the impurities. Now transfer the jaggery syrup to the stove and allow it to thicken. When it is about to reach a one-thread consistency, add grated coconut and cardamom powder. Mix well. (Mixture should be really thick and no water should remain, basically you say, varattuka).

How to make the rice dumpling - In a pot, boil water. Add boiling water to the rice flour. Allow it to stand. When water is less hot, mix the water and flour thoroughly with your hands to make a smooth dough. Now make lemon sized balls out of the dough. Flatten the ball by pressing it with your fingers. Add the filling to it and make a pouch shape/cup shape of it (here you think about the pouch we use with a string on top) and close it on top. Using a steamer, steam the dumplings for about 15-17 minutes.
