Yesterday I felt a sudden craving for having something sweet. It has been a while since I stopped having food from outside ,but this craving seemed irresistible. When I told my mom she said she’ll make me Modaks. I thought she meant Ladoos. She corrected me,”No not Ladoos,I meant kozhukattas“. I shrugged ,”But that’s not sweet.” My friend had told me that this is what she gets daily evening in her hostel and she was tired eating it.”But this kozhukatta is different” Mom had said.
Of course it was 😋😋, and I’m delighted to share that wonderful, healthy and delicious recipe with you.
For those who got confused with the multiple names ,Let me explain it to you :
It is called modak (मोदक) in Marathi ,Konkini and in Gujarati language. modhaka or kadubu in Kannada. modhakam or Kozhakattai in Tamil Kozhukatta in Malayalam and kudumu in Telungu.
Served as : Snacks
Orgin :Srilanka ,India
Calories:90 (according to my fitness pal)
This is a healthy alternative for those who can’t resist their sweet tooth like me😉 .BTW this kozhukatta can also be taken without the inner filling (The not so sweet kozhukkata I mentioned in the beginning) for those who don’t want to have it sweet.
To eat is a necessity but to eat intelligently is an art.
So snack smart!🙂
