Boil water with salt, oil firstly (mine had salt in it so I dint add any salt).
Take the flour in a broad vessel. Add the boiling hot water little by little and mix with the help of a ladle.
Let it cool for about 5 min, or until warm enough to handle.
Knead to make a smooth dough. The consistency should be like our chapatti dough, non sticky.
Keep covered until you use to prevent drying. Make small lemon sized balls with the prepared dough.
For each step or whenever needed, grease your hands with sesame oil.
Roll the stuffing also same sized balls. I am showing with sweet pooranam(stuffing).
Take a dough ball and start flattening the ball with your fingers around he sides as shown in the picture.
Then continue towards the centre of the ball so that you make a bowl shape as shown in the picture. Now keep the stuffing inside.
Gather all the sides and pinch together in the middle and make a kozhukattai (mothagam) shape. Refer the second video to see how to shape.
Now follow the procedure to make some 8 and arrange it in a idly plate as shown or in a steamer and steam cook for 10 - 12 minutes.
Now carefully take it out from the idly plate and your kozhukattais are ready!
