Ghee kozhukatai

Hi all....iam back after a very long time.Been busy with something or the other sometimes was too lazy to blog.

Thai and aadi(tamil months) are considered very auspicious for goddesses.All the fridays in these 2 months its a tradition followed in our family that we make some sweet or the other & offer to God. Mostly the first Friday of these months we make this ghee kozhukatai & start by praying lord Ga
nesha.This ghee kozhukatai is a hot favorite for all.So we make lot of this kozhukatai so that we ladies who make will get some haha.
This is how we make it..
Grated coconut 1 cup
Jaggery 1cup
Wheat flour 1/2cup
Turmeric powder a pinch
Oil & ghee to deep fry

Mix wheat flour & turmeric powder along with some water to make dough(like chappathi dough).Set aside.In a kadai add the grated coconut & jaggery & mix well until jaggery melts & mixes well with coconut to make the stuffing.Now make very small chappattis & stuff this coconut jaggery mixture in it & close it.

In a kadai heat oil.To this add 2tsp of ghee.When the oil is hot enough slide these kozukatais one by one & fry them until golden brown.
