Chakka Kozhukatta (Steamed Rice Dumpling with Jackfruit Halva / Jam)

When my in-laws visited us they brought some delicious chakkavaratti (jackfruit halva/jam) from home. Ever since then I've been experimenting with them for various snacks. Kozhukatta (Kozhukattai or Modak) is a sweet dumpling popular in India where the shell is made of rice flour and the filling is usually made with jaggery and grated coconut.  Here for chakka kozhukkatta, I used rice flour for the shell and chakkavaratti n coconut for the filling. My husband loves this kozhukatta which his grandmother used to make during his summer vacation visits.

This is another version of chakka kozhukatta where the shell is made with rice flour n chakkavaratti and the filling with jaggery n coconut.
