Samai karupatti pidi kozhukattai/ Little millet palm jaggery kozhukattai is an easy and quick to make healthy snack prepared with little millet flour, karupatti/ jaggery and flavored with cardamom. Little millet/Samai like any other millet is rich in protein, fiber, acts as antioxidants and combats with diabetes. Millets are suitable for all age groups, though millets taste a bit different from basmati rice or regular rice, the health benefits are immense so its okay to compromise on taste.

So this kozhukattai is double healthy due to the use of millet flour and karupatti/ Palm jaggery. Palm jaggery/ panam karupatti is rich in iron, Vitamin B, calcium, aids in easy digestion and is a great source of energy as well. 

This palm jaggery is much healthier than sugar or other sweetener in the markets and we need to be really cautious in buying the unadulterated one. So in this recipe I have used “NATURAL MILLS” brand karupatti and it was purely bliss to have tasted an unadulterated version of the palm jaggery. People living in USA can get hold of this brand in Indian stores and so far the best one. Also this little millet flour is from “Shastha foods brand”, if you don’t find this in store you can wash and air dry little millet in a cloth under a fan and grind it into flour.

If you have missed y’day post check here Karupatti thengai kozhukattai recipe in which I have used  palm jaggery/ karupatti and coconut as filling. So you all might have known why this post is here because Ganesh chaturthi is almost there. So let’s get to the making!
