sweet pidi kozhukattai recipe
We make sweet pidi kozhukattai for Chitra Pournami, aadi velli and Navratri as well. Recently I heard from my friends making pidi kozhukattai for Ganesh chaturthi too. Some people call this as Vella kozhukattai/Vellam kolukattai. So I thought of making this post for this festival. Usually I make pidi kozhukatti with homemade processed rice flour. Today I have shared a version with store bought rice flour( I used Anil kozhukattai maavu).Its cooking procedure is very similar to sweet ammini kozhukattai recipe. Only the shapes are different. So its like a two in one recipe. Do try this easy and simple sweet kozhukattai variety for this Ganesh chaturthi and have a great celebration ! Lets see how to do this easy sweet pidi kozhukattai recipe with rice flour.Check out my Easy Kara Pidi kozhukattai too !

  • Do not add more water if you add less jaggery because kozhukattai tastes less sweet in this case.The quantity of jaggery and water should be proportionate.
  • You can add more jaggery i.e Rice flour & jaggery in 1:2 ratio of you want sweeter kozhukattai.

Easy, delicious sweet pidi kozhukattai is ready to offer God !
