SALT PIDI KOZHUKKATTAI (UPPU KOZHUKKATTAI)


SALT PIDI KOZHUKKATTAI

Kozhukattai is one of the popular healthy snacks in south india. This kozhukktai can be made in different shapes and method, and each one will be unique in taste.

I have already posted few varieties of kozhukattais here in my blog.  Now here is one more addition to that list. Pidi kozhukktai is one of the basic kozhukktais we make instantly for poojas as neivethiyam or for evening snacks. It is definitely a guilt free healthy snack for all aged peoples.

The basic ingredient of this kozhukkatai is rice flour. In this recipe I have used ready made rice flour to make the kozhukkatai instead of freshly prepared rice flour. Instead of rice flour you can use idiyappam flour or kozhukkattai flour too. Here I have given the salter version of the kozhukkattai.

Once the dough becomes thick and non sticky (like chapthi dough) grease your hands with oil and gather the dough.
Take a lemon sized  ball in you palm and press a little with your fingers like you finger impressions will be formed. This is pidi kozhukkattai..
Or else make equal sized smooth balls out of the dough and set aside. you can make the kozhukkatais in any of the above two forms.
Arrange the prepared kozhukkatais in the greased idly plate and steam cook the kozhukkatais for around 10 minutes.
Once the kozhukkatais got cooked, remove from the plate and serve hot.

NOTES:
  •  Instead of rice flour you can use idiyappam flour or store brought kozhukkattai flour too.
  • Don’t add whole water at one go. Add water little by little and mix with a spatula.
  • The amount of water required will vary as it depends on the nature of the rice flour we are using.
  • Grease your hands with oil to avoid sticking before making kozhukkattais.
  • You can even add a teaspoon of oil in the water too while boiling.
  • Use good roll boiling hot water to get nice soft kozhukkattais.
