Wheat Flour Palm Jaggery Steamed Dumplings/Godhumai Karupatti Kozhukattai

I have been cooking with palm jaggery since few years and love to dish out some traditional dishes out of this fantastic healthy jaggery. Obviously my pantry will always have this jaggery. I have been looking for a chance to makes some kozhukattais aka steamed sweet dumplings with both wheat flour and palm jaggery. Finally i tried my hands with this combination when i picked Diabetic friendly sweets as this week's blogging marathon's theme. Palm jaggery can be used by diabetic patient for sweetening. Though diabetic peoples can enjoy thoroughly many health benefits of this jaggery its better to have it in limited quantity.

This sweet steamed dumplings makes an excellent evening snacks or a mid morning snacks for any ages. I couldnt stop myself adding some grated coconut as i want to feed everyone at home without asny hassle. Somehow everyone at home love this dumplings with loads of grated coconut.

Very easy to make this dumplings will definitely fill a hungry tummy. Give a try to this healthy sweet dumplings if you want to make something different for your evening snacks.
