Method :
Clean ginger and chop nicely.
Break red chilly into pieces.
Cut green chilly into small pieces.
Mix rice flour with butter milk and keep aside.
Keep a kadai on a stove and add oil.
When the oil is hot splutter mustard seeds.
Then add red chilly, gram dhal, urad dhal, slightly pounded ground nuts and fry well.

When the dhals turn into golden brown, add red chilly and curry leaves.
Now add turmeric powder, asafoetida and red chilly powder ( if needed ).
Slowly add butter milk - rice flour mixture.
Keep the flame at SIM position.

Keep stirring otherwise the flour would get stuck at the bottom.

It slowly thickens and the flour gets cooked.

At one stage it starts leaving the surface of the kadai.

Once ready transfer onto an oiled plate.

Sprinkle few drops of oil over surface of the the koozh and spread with a spoon.

When its hot we can't cut into pieces.
Scoop out and serve in a bowl.
Allow it to cool down for sometime and then cut with a knife.
This koozh does n't require any side dish.
Taste very good when hot and also after it cools down.
