SWEET PIDI KOZHUKKATTAI /ENIPPU(VELLAM) PIDI KOZHUKKATTAI


SWEET PIDI KOZHUKKATTAI /ENIPPU(VELLAM) 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 readymade 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.
