Steamed foods are always a hit in our household. It is less in fat, softer, yet tasty and can be gulped without any guilt 😃. Kozhukattai is one of our favorite steamed foods. We have them as a snack and also sometimes as dinner. The other day, we were back after a tiresome grocery shopping and I was just figuring out what to prepare for dinner. I did not want to make any upma and looked up for any steamed food. I had lots of poha in my pantry and decided to use it up for the dinner.
I tried this Aval Kozhukattai instead of the regular poha that I prepare. We had it piping hot with some coconut chutney that was leftover from breakfast and Idli podi. They tasted awesome and henceforth it has been included under our favorite kozhukattai varieties. Do try this quick fix kozhukattai for an evening snack and enjoy a sip of coffee.

- Main Ingredients
- Tempering Ingredients
- I have used red poha here. You can also use regular white variety. I also prefer using a thick variety of poha over the thin ones.
- Instead of green chili, you can also replace it with red chilies. They render a different taste.
- The quantity of water depends on the thickness of poha. Adjust the water based on it.
Sounds very simple and easy.
