Water -2 cups
Oil – 1 tbsp
Mustard (Rai) – 1 tsp

Chana Dal (Bengal Gram) – ½ tsp
Asafoetida – one small pinch
Curry Leaves – from 1 twig
Green Chilli (chopped) – 1 or 2
Ginger grated – 1tsp
Grated Coconut – ¼ cup

Heat the Oil in a pan. Add the Mustard Seed, Urad Dal, Chana Dal, Curry Leaves and Asafoetida. Stir for a minute in medium flame. Add grated Ginger and Green Chilli. Sauté for a second.
Add water, Salt and Coconut. Bring them to a boil.
Add Rice Rawa.
Keep mixing till the mixture leaves the side of the pan and becomes a thick lump.
Transfer it to a bowl. Allow to cool.
Once it cools down, make Kozhukattai shaped balls (see picture).
