Pazham Kozhakatta / Sweet Banana Rice dumplings

Kozhakatta is my hubbies favourite.I usually make them using coconut and jaggery.So i though why dont make a change in the filling.I found two plantains,it was almost nicely rip.I dont know whether any of my blogger friends have tried this.Now let me say about the Pazham Kozhakatta,it was a great hit at my home.Any way my experiment has successed.
You friends try it out.You will realy like it.Iam guaranty.It is very simple.For making sweet kozhakatta it takes time.But this dont take that much time...

Rice Flour - 1 cups
Water - 1 cups
For Filling:
Banana -2 finaly chopped
Coconut (grated) - 1/4 cup
Cardamom - 3/4 teaspoon
Sugar-2-3 tsp (U can add more)
ghee – 1 teaspoon

1.Heat a non stick pan and add gee,now add banana and cooked for 4-6 minutes.
2.When it change to nice yellow colour add grated coconut and sugar.
3.Mix well nicely,add cardamom powder and remove from fire.Note that it should be dry.No water containt should be there.Divide this into 10 parts.

To make the rice dough:
4.Boil water. Add the boiling water part by part into the rice flour and mix well with a ladle until you get a soft yet firm dough. Ensure that there are no lumps in the dough. use some oil in your hand inorder not to stick.
5.Divide this into 10 parts.Take a rice dough (medium lemon sized) into your palm. Make a small ball of the dough and flatten them into small cups using your thumbs.

6.Take one part of the coconut banana filling and place it in the middle of the flattened dough.
7.Cover the sides while ensuring the filling is safely cocooned with the soft rice dough covering the filling from all sides.Repeat to make more.
8.Place the dumplings in the steamer and steam for 10-15 mins. Take out and serve.
