To make kozhukatta

2. Heat some water in a vessel adding salt, fennel seeds and grated coconut. Add the hot water little by little to the rice flour until a smooth dough is formed (use a large spoon to make the dough). Roll the dough into medium sized balls and flatten them with your palm (you can grease your palm with little oil). Fill it with 1.5 tbsp chicken filling and reshape into a ball. Repeat with the remaining dough. Steam the balls in a steamer or idli cooker for about 13 – 15 minutes.
