Kara Pidi Kolukattai Recipe / Upma Kozhukattai Recipe


Kara Kozhukattai usually making for festival like Ganesh Chaturthi, Pidi means ‘to hold’ in Tamil, we usually keep the kozhukattai dough in our palm, close and press it to give an impression as you can see so this is why it is called as pidi kozhukattai. this is a very simple and easy recipe. These kozhukattai are soft and perfect for breakfast or snacks. Upma kozhukattai is an easy and quick to make savoury upma prepared with a broken raw rice/ Idli rava and lots of onions. Traditionally they soak rice and then prepare Kara kozhukattai. I am sharing instant one with readymade idli rava. Little grated coconut can be added while mixing rice rava to add to its taste. You can serve with three types of “hotel style chutney”.
