Boiling water - 1 1/2 -2 cup
Salt - 2 pinch

Stuffing:
1.Put coconut, jaggery, ghee and cardamom powder in a hot pan; keep stirring till jaggery melts and mixes with other items.
2.Remove from heat when you find the mix leaving the sides of the pan without sticking.Now the stuffing for kozhukattai is ready.
