Wash and carefully drain the samai/little millet and keep it aside.


Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds, add cumin seeds, channa dal, urad dal and fry until they turn golden brown color.


Add dry red chillies, curry leaves, asafoetida and fry for about 30 seconds.


Now add 3 cups of water and salt and mix well.


Let it come to rolling boil.


Slowly add samai/little millet and stir well.


Cover and cook the samai until well done. Open the lid and stir to avoid any burning. [If you feel the samai is not cooked well at this stage, you can sprinkle some water and cook for some more time]


Once, all the water is absorbed and the samai is cooked, add the grated coconut to it.


Mix really well for another 30-40 seconds and switch off the stove.


When it is warm, knead the mixture and start to make pidi kozhukattai.



Wet your palms and make either golf sized balls or oval shaped kozhukattai.


Place on a steamer or idly plate and steam cook for 10 -15 minutes and switch off the stove.



Yes, delicious and super healthy Samai Kara Kozhukattai is ready to be enjoyed, serve it hot with either kaara chutney or any Chutney/Thogaiyal variety of your choice.
